  30. 30. How They Work - Blogs  Mostly text and similar to a journal but contains written content, links, reader comments, and pictures.  Many services (WordPress, Blogspot, Blogger, Tumblr) allow users to participate for free.  Bloggers have many 30 motivations.
  31. 31. Blog Example – HuffingtonPost.com  One site, many blogs.  Most visited blog on the internet with 1.5 million visitors per day. 31
  32. 32. How They Work - Podcasts  Audio and video files typically available through subscribing to a service like Apple‘s iTunes.  They typically live on a web site or blog that allows comments.  Example: Twit.tv 32
  33. 33. Podcast Example – Twit.tv  Founded by Leo Laporte, radio/TV host.  Started off with one show, grew to many.  Various ways to have remote participants.  Video added later. 33
  34. 34. How They Work – Video/Photos  Users create videos or take pictures and upload them to their respective sites.  No cost to upload. Can store a limited (but not restrictive) amount of media 34
  35. 35. How They Work - Flickr  Flickr started out as an online album. Now owned by Yahoo, making it easier for those members to participate.  Has some friending capability.  Now allows short videos. 35
  36. 36. How They Work - YouTube  Open comments on videos by Google members.  Lots of potential commenters because of the huge number of Google account holders. 36

  38. 38. YouTube - Example 38
  39. 39. YouTube - Example  64,874,932 views  DeVore family were soon made YouTube Partners. This gives YouTube the right to run ads over the videos they post, and in exchange, they are given a share of the revenue.  Earned $160,000  They sell "David After Dentist" t-shirts and share a portion of the revenue they earn with dental charities. 39
  40. 40. 40
  41. 41. Participation  Blogs – One in four online Americans read blogs, the most popular activity on the web.  Podcasts - Has one of the lowest penetrations of social networks with 11% of online Americans listening.  Video – Many more viewers than creators 41
  42. 42. How They Create Connections  Blog authors read and comment on other blogs. They create an interconnecting network and form the Blogosphere.  New software such as Disqus allows the same comment conversation to appear on multiple blogs. 42
  43. 43. How They Create Connections  With the right software the links are created automatically generating SEO traffic. 43
  44. 44. How They Create Connections  Blogs that generate more crosslinks improve their Google page ranking and are more likely to be found by searchers. 44
  45. 45. Aside: Search Engine Optimization (SEO) 45
  46. 46. Google Dominates Search 46
  47. 47. How SEO Works  1 Generation Google Algorithm: Links  Unethical marketers or Black Hat SEO marketers would create sites with nothing but links to hack the system. 47
  48. 48. How SEO Works  2nd Generation Algorithm: Links + Content  Black Hat SEOs practiced ―keyword stuffing‖ and hid keywords to improve ranking. 48
  49. 49. How SEO Works  3rd Generation Google Algorithm: Links + Content + Activity (traffic, RSS subscriptions, comments, updates, etc.) 49
  50. 50. How They Challenge Existing Players  Blogs are unregulated so anything goes.  No editors.  Fact and opinion are mixed. Rumors are reported, and conflicts of interest are not disclosed. 50
  51. 51. How They Challenge Existing Players  They provide almost the same level of quality as newspapers, radio, and TV very inexpensively. 51
  52. 52. How They Challenge Existing Players  Starting this year, the FTC required bloggers to disclose their conflicts of interest. 52
  53. 53. How You Can Use Them  Listen to what blogs are saying about your company.  Blog search engines like Google Blog Search, Icerocket, and Technorati can help you find out who has the most influence in the subject that interests you. 53

  62. 62. How They Work  Friends  Friend requests  Friends can see more of the interactions 62
  63. 63. Participation •One in four Americans are on a social network. 63
  64. 64. How They Create Connections  By definition they are social with members exchanging public (e.g. Facebook walls) and private messages (e.g. Twitter direct messages). 64
  65. 65. How They Challenge Existing Players  They take attention away from other activities such as TV.  They enable people to collaborate who would have never met before. 65
  66. 66. How You Can Use Them  Create a profile, group, fan page, etc. and invite your communities to them.  Some companies have created their own networks  Salesforce.com is a CRM site allows its customers to connect with people in similar industries or departments.  Webkinz 66
  67. 67. Facebook  Second biggest social media network in the world with 500 million members  Skews younger  Lots of things to do (Farmville)  Some collaboration : Groups and Fan Pages  Recent privacy controversy 67

  70. 70. Facebook Conquers The World 70
  71. 71. 71
  72. 72. Other Social Media Networks  mySpace  Orkut  QQ  Ning 72
  73. 73. Aside: Social Networking Theory 73
  74. 74. Strength of Weak Ties  Based on a 1973 paper by sociologist Mark Granovetter.  Significant percentage of people get their jobs as a result of information provided by a weak tie or friends-of-friends. 74
  75. 75. Strength of Weak Ties  150 member is typically the most that can be maintained.  The size of the tribe. Consistent across times and cultures. 75
  76. 76. Strength of Weak Ties  Now with social networks, you can maintain ―supernets‖ that have more than 150 weak ties, which you can trust more than mass media like TV or newspapers.  The average number of Facebook friends is 130, slightly less than the observed 150. 76
  77. 77. Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks:  Makes you more likely to be liked in social interactions. 77
  78. 78. Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Builds "social capital" - a sociological measure of the value of beneficial relationships. Social capital is linked to increased well-being and self-esteem. 78
  79. 79. Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Increases influence. In a color picking experiment, the people who could see the choices of more participants (in other words, were better connected) persuaded the group to pick their color: even when they had to persuade the vast majority to give up their financial incentive. 79
  80. 80. Strength of Weak Ties  There is some evidence that sharing information on social media networks :  Makes one more attractive: people with about 300 friends were rated as the most appealing, any more than that and their social attractiveness began to drop off. 80
  81. 81. Virtual Worlds 81
  82. 82. Virtual Worlds  Participants organize themselves into clans with their own rules and hierarchy.  Some are games and some are just a digital locations to hang out.  Digital currency can be converted to real currency 82
  83. 83. Class Examples 83
  84. 84. People Collaborating 84
  85. 85. How They Work  Wikis – sites that house content generated and edited by multiple users.  Examples  Wikipedia  Conservapedia  wikiHow  The community keeps order by watching the content and ideals of the community. 85
  86. 86. How They Work  Open Source Software – Software generated by interested groups of programmers  Examples:  Linux  OpenOffice  Apache  Firefox  Wikis 86
  87. 87. Participation  22% of online Americans say they use Wikipedia once a month.  6% contribute to a wiki once a month. 87
  88. 88. How They Create Connections  Wikis have talk pages where contributors discuss what can be included.  Those who contribute more have their name in front of more users.  Contributors can be accredited experts or enthusiastic amateurs 88
  89. 89. How They Create Connections  In Open Source, those who add more features and fix more bugs can shape what appears in new releases of the software. 89
  90. 90. How They Challenge Existing Players  8th most popular site on the web.  Wikipedia has helped kill the traditional Encyclopedia and Microsoft‘s Encarta. 90
  91. 91. How They Challenge Existing Players  The users highlight what they think is important about a company not what a company thinks is important.  Example: Nike‘s page has a section on their alleged human rights abuses. 91
  92. 92. How You Can Use Them  Wikipedia is highly ranked in search results.  Wikipedia discourages companies from creating and maintaining their own page, but it does allow them to make factual corrections. 92
  93. 93. How You Can Use Them  Wikis are open sourced and free so companies are creating them as an alternate support system for their customers. 93
  94. 94. Class Examples 94
  95. 95. People Reacting to Each Other Forums, Ratings, and Reviews 95
  96. 96. How Do People Use Social Media?  Forums (e.g.Yahoo and Google Groups)  Bypass official reviewers. Anyone can point out flaws in what you‘re doing. 96
  97. 97. How Do People Use Social Media?  Ratings (eBay seller ratings) 97
  98. 98. How Do People Use Social Media?  Reviews (Amazon product reviews, Rotten Tomatoes movie reviews) 98
  99. 99. How They Work - Forums  Group members  Post or answer any question in the group creating threads of conversation 99
  100. 100. How They Work - Reviews  Becoming more common than forums.  Usually let you assign a rating level (i.e. 1 to 5 stars) and a comment.  Often you can comment on the comments. 100
  101. 101. Participation  20% of online Americans participate in forums.  25% of online Americans read ratings and reviews. 101
  102. 102. How They Create Connections  Forums are slow motion conversations.  By responding to each other, participants get to know each other and build new connections even though they‘ve never met. 102
  103. 103. How They Create Connections  Forums are a success because they let the participants ―show off.‖  Example: Harriett Klauser was Amazon‘s top reviewer. She reads two books a day and has 21,000 reviews. Publishers send her 50 books a week to read. 103
  104. 104. How They Challenge Existing Players  Takes commentary from the hands of ―experts‖ and gives the customers the opportunity to have their say.  A single customer can criticize any one thing that has gone wrong (e.g. there‘s a fly in my soup, the hotel smells funny, the video is boring). 104
  105. 105. How You Can Use Them  High ratings/reviews boost buy rates  Poor ratings/reviews are opportunities  Fix chronic problems  Provide good, timely customer service  Respond directly to customers with a bad experience 105
  106. 106. Class Examples 106
  107. 107. People Organizing Content 107
  108. 108. People Organizing Content - Tags 108 Source: Groundswell by Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff
  109. 109. How They Work  Taxonomy vs. Folksonomy  In a taxonomy, everything has its own spot defined by the experts.  Example: In the taxonomy of species, Homo sapiens is a mammal, while Tyrannosaurus rex is a reptile 109
  110. 110. Participation  7% of online Americans are involved in tagging.  The taggers attach keywords to sites so their decisions have an influence on search engine results 110
  111. 111. How They Create Connections  Tags define people. It‘s easy to find other people with the same interests based on what they are tagging. 111
  112. 112. How They Challenge Existing Players  Organizations have no control over how they are tagged.  WalmartingAcrossAmerica. com was labeled fake. 112
  113. 113. How You Can Use Them  Find out how your organization is being classified, but also who is tagging. Connect with these people who might be interested.  Tag your own site. This will help searchers find your site the way you want. 113
  114. 114. Class Examples 114
  115. 115. Accelerating Consumption RSS and Widgets 115
  116. 116. How Do People Use Social Media?  Accelerating consumption  RSS (Really Simple Syndication)  Widgets (Toys R Us) 116
  117. 117. How They Work  RSS has two elements.  A transmitter that sends a feed of new items generated by a site (blog posts, Flickr photos).  A receiver that displays the items in an organized fashion. 117
  118. 118. How They Work  Widgets are dedicated RSS feeds.  Updated weather, local gas prices, etc.  Live almost anywhere from a desktop application, to a blog sidebar, to your phone. 118
  119. 119. Participation  Fewer than 1/12th of online Americans say they use an RSS feed.  RSS feeds are built into personalized home pages like Yahoo or in web browser smart bookmarks, and users might not realize they are using RSS. 119
  120. 120. How They Create Connections  RSS makes it easier for people to follow more online activity.  Widgets are social because they spread. Putting a widget on your web site allows others to see it, and they might want to add it to their sites as well. 120
  121. 121. How They Challenge Existing Players  Do not directly threaten institutional power, but they do accelerate the consumption of media. 121
  122. 122. How You Can Use Them  Excellent marketing tools if you are pushing out regularly scheduled updates such as articles, blog posts, or new catalogs.  Widgets can spread virally as fans tell their friends about new, neat apps. 122
  123. 123. Class Examples 123
  124. 124. Evaluating New Tools 124
  125. 125. Evaluating New Social Media Tools  Does it create new, meaningful connections among the community? 125
  126. 126. Evaluating New Social Media Tools  Is it easy to join?  Example: Facebook connect 126

  128. 128. Evaluating New Social Media Tools  Is there enough content created by the community? 128
  129. 129. Evaluating New Social Media Tools  Can anyone build on top of the new tool? 129
  130. 130. Social Technographic Profiles 130
  131. 131. Changing Customer Segmentation  Demographics – What people are intrinsically  Age  Income  Education  Employment  Race 131
