Twitter Presentation Presentation Transcript

  • 1. How do we communicate on the web? ● E-mail ● Social Networking Sites
  • 2. E-mail Benefits E-mail is a static/private/semi-public method of communication. ● The audience knows how to use it! ● Most of the audience still reads the e-mail they are interested in, which makes it effective. ● You can share by fowarding it. ● You can mass reply to a group
  • 3. Drawbacks: E-mail ● Most of the audience knows how to filter it! ● You have to sign up for it. You can't window shop an e-mail alert (only subscribers will receive special offers). ● Spam Laws. ● Forwarding can have drawbacks too. ● Consumed as the user logs into their e-mail box (could be now, could be three weeks from now.) ● Interaction between the sender and recipient is not available to the public at large.
  • 4. Benefits: Social Networking Sites: ● Circle of friends (you converse with people you already know or products/brands/apps you allow in). ● Privacy (no wedding crashers).
  • 5. Drawbacks - Social Networking Sites ● Learning Curve ● Closed loop ● Can't interact outside your circle. ● Hard to opt out of distracting apps.
  • 6. What is Twitter? (Isn't this just another social media website?) A Website is typically information that can only be consumed in a browser. It is a site after all like Park Place!

  • 17. FaceBook vs. Twitter ● Both FaceBook exchange real-time status updates. The difference is that FaceBook is (for the most part) a closed system because it was originally designed as a private system. Privacy levels are now determined by user and many users now choose to keep their updates private. ● Twitter has always been public by default. You can follow Ashton Kutcher or a stranger who shares marmalade tips.
  • 18. FaceBook Vs. Twitter ● Since many users have made their accounts private, most FaceBook Updates can't be searched on Google like Twitter updates. ● Currently FaceBook reaches a broader demographic range than Twitter. ● What are these companies up to?
