    • Citizen (and consumer) behaviors have changed Print newspapers no longer dominate as the news hub. “77%  of  the  *mes  that  viewers  watch  TV,  it  is  with   another  device.”    –Stefanos  Karagos   Photo  credit:  h4p://www.flickr.com/photos/dcmetroblogger/6574651159/   @PRsarahevans   #nevadaengage

    • Develop your (earned) formula•  In person events •  Blog –  Forums –  Forget the press release –  Meet and greet (if you can), this can be your communication hub•  Print content –  There’s still an audience •  Social for this –  Twitter•  Website –  Facebook –  The most credible of –  Tumblr your online presence –  Instagram –  SEO •  Mobile (iOS, Android, Windows) –  Text –  Apps –  Mobile site @PRsarahevans   #nevadaengage

On average 16-20 percent of fans will see your content (source) –  Tag everything –  Get likes, shares, comments•  Twitter’s Trending Topics –  Number of people using hashtag matter (not repeat tweets or multiple uses of hashtag in one tweet) –  Generated by an algorithm – what’s being talked about right now•  Featured on Instagram Explore Page –  Must have more than 10,000 followers –  Unknown, but need a lot of likes (i.e. 500+) and from popular people•  Reddit Front Page –  Submission time (9a EST) –  First 10 upvotes have the same weight as next 100 upvotes (get them quick) –  Type of content (e.g. photo via Imgur) and subject matter (e.g. meme, rage comic) @PRsarahevans   #nevadaengage  
    • You have to understand whattopics are important to people or likely to generate a response. #   Great  on:   Not  so  great  on:   Reddit   Linkedin   Instagram   Quora   Tumblr   Facebook   Buzzfeed   Great  on:   Not  so  great:   Google+   Twi4er   Facebook   Google+   Instagram   Pinterest   Linkedin   Great  on:   Not  so  great  on:   Google+   Everywhere  else   @PRsarahevans   #nevadaengage
