Transcript of "What Is Social Media? (PG Edition)"

  1. 1. “ Social media is like teen sex. Everyone wants to do it. Nobody knows how. When it’s finally done there is surprise it’s not better.” Avinash Kaushik, Analytics Evangelist, Google photo by Zellaby on flickr.com
  2. 2. Officially, though, social media is not like teen sex.* * Phew!
  3. 3. Officially, social media is “an umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words, pictures, videos, and audio.” http://www.wikipedia.org

  10. 10. REASON #6 BECAUSE SOCIAL MEDIA IS LIKE WORD OF MOUTH ON STEROIDS.
  11. 11. Because, dear friend, social media is a force to be reckoned with. photo by Balakov on flickr.com

  21. 21. “ The word blog is irrelevant. What's important is that it is now common, and will soon be expected, that every intelligent person (and quite a few unintelligent ones) will have a media platform where they share what they care about with the world.” Seth Godin, Author
  22. 22. 5,000,000 The number of active Barack Obama supporters across 15 social networks. photo by jmtimages (better!) on flickr.com
  23. 23. 14,200,000 The number of views Obama’s famous “Yes We Can” video got on YouTube. An additional 15 of the 1,800 official and 139,000 unofficial Obama videos received over 1 Million views. photo by EricaJoy on flickr.com

  26. 26. But wait, there’s more.
  27. 27. 93% OF SOCIAL MEDIA USERS BELIEVE A COMPANY SHOULD HAVE A PRESENCE IN SOCIAL MEDIA. Cone, Business in Social Media Study, September 2008
  28. 28. Believe it or not, that doesn’t mean that 93% of social media users think companies should treat social media as yet another channel for broadcasting bullsh*t.
  29. 29. YOU SEE, IT’S SUPPOSED TO BE A DIALOGUE, NOT A MONOLOGUE.
  30. 30. “Marketers don't understand channels where you have to talk and listen at the same time... The marketing industry's idea of a two-way communication is to put an 800 number or a web address in an ad and take orders.” Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009
  31. 31. This couldn't be more obvious than with email. Your company has a chance to turn its email list into a two-way communication. Except that most mass emails from companies are "do not reply". "We want to talk to you," they say. "But we don't want to hear back from you. Unless you want to place an order, and if so click here." Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009
  32. 32. “ The people in charge of talking are in the marketing department. The people in charge of listening are in the research or service or sales department. They hardly ever talk to each other, let alone have full-duplex conversations with customers.” Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009 photo by Jamie Mellor on flickr.com
  33. 33. “ This won't fly in social technology because the minute you talk, people expect you to listen. And if you start to listen, you'll be tempted to talk. It's a full-duplex channel that befuddles one-way marketers.” Josh Bernoff, Why marketers have trouble with full-duplex social technology, June 30, 2009
  34. 34. FACT: Social media playtime is over.* *See http://www.forrester.com/Research/Document/Excerpt/0,7211,47665,00.html for more on that topic.
  35. 35. SO, PLEASE. * STOP PLAYING AROUND & GET SERIOUS ABOUT HARNESSING THE POWER OF THIS THING. *C’mon, I said please.
  36. 36. 85% of social media users believe that a company should go further than just having a presence on social sites and should also interact with its customers. Cone, Business in Social Media Study, September 2008
  37. 37. “ For companies, resistance to social media is futile. Millions of people are creating content for the social Web. Your competitors are already there. Your customers have been there for a long time. If your business isn't putting itself out there, it ought to be.” BusinessWeek, February 19, 2009 photo by Archie McPhee Seattle on flickr.com
  38. 38. Unfortunately, most companies are still treating social media like JUST another marketing channel. * *Oops.
