  3. 3. Social Media: Facebook open graph<br />What’s changing?<br />Social Plug ins - These show a given user's Facebook friends' activity reading and commenting on the partner site e.g "like" button that can be installed on partner sites and instantly be used to voice a Facebook member's approval of a given item.<br />Graph API - an overhaul of Facebook's platform code in which every object in Facebook has a unique ID. e.g a juiced-up search feature that will now make it possible for developers to search all public data on Facebook.<br />
  4. 4. Social Media: Facebook open graph<br />Advantage:<br />Facebook has made it easier for developers to incorporate the new features on websites. All that is required is a few lines of code, which can create dynamic social web integration. Websites will now be able to provide a constant flow of content to the people who “like” what they publish online. <br />
  5. 5. Social Media: Facebook open graph<br />Opportunities<br />Personalise the ‘Featured product’ on home page of brand’s website based on visitors likes from Facebook. <br />Facebook to potentially start driving more traffic to online stores than Google. Potentially allowing brands to post to visitors wall or viewer to like products and post to friends with a click of a button. <br />Facebook laying the foundation for wider adoption of Facebook credits. Imagine if you could buy at any online website using Facebook credits?<br />E-commerce conversion rates to increase. Imagine going to a website and purchasing an item and next to it you can see that?? of your friends like the product. Instantly increasing the social credibility of the product and your status amongst peers. <br />

  7. 7. Social Media: Facebook ‘Place’ Application<br />What’s Changing:<br />The new location-based feature would give the social network a function that is currently dominated by Foursquare & Gowalla. <br />Foursquare & Gowalla – are mobile apps that allow users to check in to different locations which then send alerts to their friends of their location. <br />Yahoo have just acquired a location based service of their own (Koprol). This may help push this function mainstream. <br />
  8. 8. Social Media: Facebook ‘Place’ Application<br />Opportunities:<br />Promotions could be run for companies who can now register and calculate people who return to their store. Rewarding those who repeat visit. <br />Loyalty programs for people who check-in to the store. <br />Facebook status updates could become location based.<br />Sharing events that occurred in certain locations. Making it easier for people to search for events & to add their own content or story about that exact event. <br />
  9. 9. Social Media: YouTube<br />What’s changed: <br />New "next up" video list: YouTube have changed the way videos are stored for you to watch next. <br />Description and stats areas united: All stats for that video are easier to find. <br />Subscribe button is now located at the top of the page.<br />The new brand banner will have different dimensions to your current banner (Height: 25px Width, flexible but max. of 170px in width).<br />Like / Don't Like model has now been incorporated into YouTube. <br />

  22. 22. Carlton Draught<br />Observations:<br />Positives<br />Good mix of traditional & non traditional marketing. <br />Partnership with radio worked well in increasing awareness and attracting new audience. <br />The promotion on Facebook increased fans of the page. The exact number I can’t find but am lead to believe it was in the 1000’s throughout duration of promotion. <br />Negatives<br />The prize wasn’t really a major talking point. Something worth $200k could have been more attractive and hence would have received more press.<br />
