  • Today’s Bicultural Latinos are at the center of two worlds, their native culture and American culture
  • that’s nearly 33 million!
  • 2008- 875,000 straddlers/navigators usedfacebook in the last month2012- 7,513,000
  • drove 30% of growth in social media, but make up only 15% of the population. And spend 2 more minutes per day than GM
  • Biculturalmom.com Code-switchingThey adapt, do whatever to be successful…Show contradiction…manipulation I often adjust my actions and words to fit the acceptable standards of the community we’re interacting with or to meet their expectations of us.
  • Amongst Hispanic friends we are friendly, cracking jokes and throwing out descriptive gestures …With my White friends, we’re loud and use a ton of obnoxious slang…With higher ups I take a more scholarly tone. I dress differently and have reserved gestures.
  • Spanish language seems the obvious way to go. Identify Latinos online by: language selected for tools used (browser, Twitter, etc.) or language in which the social conversation For example, Facebook allows people to select if they speak Spanish, Spanglish or Spanish and English. Unfortunately, most people either don't change or add these options.Also, considering that 67% of Hispanics browse the Internet only in English, language preference might be very limiting. So what happens with English-preferred Latinos?
  • BilingualTestFacebook has proven to be very effective for reaching Latinos. I encourage every brand to start building their Latino fan page if they haven't already.When naming page, avoid the Español name, even if your approach is to go Spanish only. Consumers expect an experience beyond language.For most brands, I recommend a bilingual approach. It's inclusive and has shown lots of positive reactions by understanding the reality of Latinos.Do bilingual postings: post simultaneously in both languages. It's becoming a well-received practice. Also, it's interesting to note that the same person might be reacting to both Spanish and English posts as you can see below. This is the true bilingual spirit.
  • If you go bilingual, think in terms of search when naming your page. For our client Valvoline, we created Garage Valvoline. The word garage not only is related to the nature of the community, but also has the same meaning in both English and Spanish.
  • Social graph (WHO people care about) is an online representation of your real-world relationships (the human icons), But the social graph has its limitations. It doesn’t offer a full picture of who you are, what you want or what you might need in your online experience.Interest Graph = WHAT people care about, is the online representation of your interests based on your social and search activity: What you share, who you follow, what you ‘like’, what you post in status updates, and what you type into the search bar.based on:What a consumer searches for (on Google, Bing, YouTube, Twitter, etc)What a consumer follows (on Facebook, Twitter, Google +1, Tumblr, Quora, etc) What a consumer expresses (as blog posts, tweets, pins, stashes, statuses, reviews, pictures, conversations, etc.)
