  • 43. 43 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 43  Reason #2 Measurable results  Instead of waiting for Google search engine to index your Web site on the first page of its result  Cannot force Google search engine to show our Web site on the first page  With social media you can develop content and be seen by thousands of visitors
  • 44. 44 Google Search Engine 44  Search with keyword “coffee”
  • 45. 45 Starbucks on Facebook 45
  • 46. 46 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 46  Reason #3 Flexible  Many different social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn  Use the one that is the most suitable for your organization or company
  • 47. 47 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 47  Reason #4 Audience with all ages
  • 48. 48 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 48  Reason #5 No geographical restrictions  The World Wide Web will do the work for you  Your products and services will be known throughout all people around the world  People at wherever can become your fan club  People at wherever can follow you
  • 49. 49 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 49  Success with social media will likely increase the number of inbound links you receive  Links will boost your search engine rankings and they’ll also drive click- through traffic your way  Both are generally high quality traffic sources.
  • 50. 50 50 Starbucks Twitter Found by Google Search
  • 51. 51 Twitter Account of Starbucks 51
  • 52. 52 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 52  Reason #6: Eco-friendly  Imagine how many trees are being cut down just to come up with yellow pages or brochures?  Imagine how much waste is thrown out when people dump their brochures?  Social media marketing likely does not use gas as much as traditional marketing which requires commuting and transportation
  • 53. 53 7 Reasons Why Social Media Marketing 53  Reason #7: Build a relationship with customers  Instead of doing outbound marketing to the masses of people who are trying to block you out  Doing "inbound marketing" where you help yourself "get found" by people already learning about and shopping in your industry
  • 54. 54 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 54  #1 No one is reading your blog  Technorati tells us there are about 900,000 blog posts made every 24 hours  #2 You’ve got to give (some of) your best stuff away  You’re going to give away some of your best, most valuable, most life-improving material away for free, within a well- defined content marketing plan
  • 55. 55 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 55  #3: It will eat your life (if you let it)  Know what you want to do with social media, keep yourself focused, and set a timer if you have to  The tools are amazing, but so is their power to distract you from what you’re trying to accomplish
  • 56. 56 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 56  #4: Social media hates selling  It’s really hard to sell products and services in social media, mostly because this audience hates salespeople worse than they hate Microsoft  You may be able to get some limited success out of it, but more likely you’ll be banned, blocked, shunned, and abused
  • 57. 57 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 57  #5: What they say is a million times more important than what you say  People with lousy products, crummy business practices, and shady backgrounds get found out  Word spreads with frightening speed  Treat people right, because if you don’t, you will be exposed. And it will not be pretty
  • 58. 58 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 58  #6: A blog is not a marketing plan  Blogs are cool, but a single useful tool isn’t the same thing as a solid business and marketing plan.  Blogs are just one way to get your best content out there  If you’re in social media to do business, you have to develop a strategy for taking mildly interested strangers and turning them into raving fans . . . and customers
  • 59. 59 7 Harsh Realities of Social Media Marketing 59  #7: You don’t get to opt out  The conversation will happen with or without you  If you want to influence the conversation, you’ve actually got to get into the conversation
  • 60. 60 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 60  Myth #1: Social media is free  Fact: You should expect to invest in social media  You need to spend employee time or paying an agency or consultant  To be effective in social media a great investment in learning and research is required
  • 61. 61 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 61  Myth #2: Younger People “get” Social Media  Fact: Social Use of Social Media is NOT the Same as Employing it as a Marketing Strategy  It takes more than exposure to the medium – it takes strategy, marketing know-how and great creative execution
  • 62. 62 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 62  Myth #3: Social Media is Easy  Fact: The Barriers to Entry are Low, but Getting it Right is Harder  Social media may be harder than you think – failure rates in corporate blogs are high  Many corporate twitter accounts lack any real engagement  When using social media to build your business be prepared to roll up your sleves and do some work
  • 63. 63 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 63  Myth #4: Social Media is Fast  Fact: Social Media Takes Time  Social Media takes time – both to listen and understand the communities as well as to figure out how to use it effectively.  Getting it right in social media is difficult, and it takes trial and error.
  • 64. 64 7 Myths of Social Media Marketingb 64  Myth #5: Social Media Can’t Be Measured  Fact: Social Media is Measurable – But Measure More than just Followers and Fans  What are the click through rates to your corporate site from social sites?  How many key influencers in your audience have you connected with?  How many people retweet you?  What is your score on Twitter Grader or Klout?  You can also set up campaigns
  • 65. 65 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 65  Myth #6: Social Media is for Everyone  Fact: Consider Your Strategy First, then Choose the Tool  If you don’t have the time or resources to dedicate to it you may end up wasting your time completely  Creating an account that is later abandoned may end up having negative impacts on your organization and can signal that you don’t really care
  • 66. 66 7 Myths of Social Media Marketing 66  Myth #7: Social Media is a Great Way for me to Talk  Fact: Social Media is an Effective Tool for Listening. Talk Later  When entering social media, the first question many people ask is “what should I say?”  The first question should be “Who should I listen to?”.

  • 79. 79 10 of the Smartest Big Brands in Social Media 79  8) Ford and Social Media PR  Ford’s legal department sent out cease and desist letters to forum owners using Ford trademarks  Obviously the story was twisted and changed, and in the end people were outraged  What makes this a success story for social media is that Scott Monty (Ford’s community manager) was quick to find out what happened and let us know the true story
  • 80. Twitter of Head of Social Media at Ford 80
  • 81. 10 of the Smartest Big Brands in Social Media 81  9) Dell Doing it Everywhere  Embracing social media is a huge undertaking, and involves a large investment  Dell didn’t shy away from these obstacles, instead they’ve gone above and beyond, truly cultivating a cross-platform community  They’ve created multiple Twitter handles, a network of blogs, and are very active on Facebook  Creating cross-platform strategies can lead to the most success, especially when your demographic is already Internet and technologically savvy

  • 105. 105 Agenda 105  What is Social Media?  How Social Media Changes Business  How Social Media Changes Technology  How Social Media Changes Society  Side Effects of Social Media  Conclusion
  • 106. 106 How Social Media Changes Technology 106  Change the way we store data  Shift from using traditional databases to new databases, such as Google Bigtable  Shift from buying our own hardware to store data to using Internet storage services, such as Twitter uses Amazon Simple Storage Service  Change the way people reuse software  Shift from downloading codes to calling functions through Web API (Application Programming Interface)
  • 107. Social Media Kills the Database 107  What do we want to do with social media data?  Store pieces of content for your website so it’s easy to manage  Store content from EVERY website on the Internet  Track your company’s financial transactions  Track every credit card transaction for your multibillion-dollar banking conglomerate  Store an address so it’s easy to find by a unique key  Store every photo on Facebook so it’s accessible by a unique key
  • 108. Social Media Kills the Database 108  What do we want to do with social media data?  Generate charts and graphs on how your business did in the last month  Generate charts and graphs on key analytics for every piece of Social Media on the Internet.  Analyze records of how people have accessed your website and attempt to simulate their behavior  Analyze every click ever made on MySpace and optimize intrasite workflow
  • 109. Problems of RDBMSs - Scaling 109  RDBMSs have made the modern business possible: being able to slice, dice, and analyze data in a neat, intuitive format is immensely powerful  The problem is that the price of processing data in an RDBMS scales exponentially with the amount of data  Getting twice the processing speed on twice the data rarely costs only twice as much  Their solutions still require expensive hardware, custom hash algorithms, compression, brittle analysis structures, and the licenses are enormously pricey
  • 110. Problems of RDBMSs – Data Format 110  In addition, developers have become crippled by being able to only think of data in terms of Rows and Columns  There’s a multitude of database paradigms: Graphs, Trees, Objects, and so on  Databases limit developers to SQL, which is great for certain kinds of set mathematics and not much else  In order to overcome fundamental limitations of DBs, things like Conditionals, Iteration, String Manipulation, and more have been hacked into what was at first an elegant set mathematics language
  • 111. Problems of RDBMSs – Algorithms 111  Algorithms (such as MapReduce) which make data analysis scalable are highly unintuitive in SQL  The limitations in the environment lead to a limitation in engineers’ ability to solve “big data” problems  People treat Databases as The Only Way To Store And Process Lots Of Data, and this leads them down the Road To Failure
  • 112. Fundamental Problems of RDBMSs 112  The row/column approach limits you to one static storage paradigm  Updating indices does not scale linearly  The more data you have, the longer it takes to put it in  You can’t delete data if your DB gets too large in a production environment, so performance continually decays until The Datapocalypse occurs (or you throw more money at the problem).  There’s an immense amount of overhead with transactions
  • 113. Fundamental Problems of RDBMSs 113  The internals are totally opaque for most DB solutions. Optimization, required for any performance solutions, becomes a “black art”  Backups are quite difficult to do – real-time mirrored, or periodic deltas.  Normalization is the only way to keep data sizes from exploding, but joins are incredibly expensive
  • 114. The Effect of Scaling Problems 114  Google (and Yahoo) once ran off of 40,000 MySQL Boxes (later replaced with minty MapReduce/GFS/HDFS goodness)  MySpace has about xx,000 Microsoft SQL Servers (with license fees) to serve their content  Facebook was spending $1,000,000/month+ for specialized database hardware just to serve their photos
  • 115. Possible Solutions for Storing Data 115  One of the ideas we’re prototyping is a distributed Key-Value store that we can perform set mathematics on  For our analytics, we just need to support a handful of operations  This could be built on top of HBase, Tokyo Cabinet, Project Voldemort, or a handful of other distributed data stores
  • 116. What should be scrapping for Storing Big Data 116  Transactions  Taking time especially for big data  Joins  Nothing is more evil than normalization when you need to shard data across multiple servers  Backup and Complex Replication  All of data should be imported from HDFS (The Hadoop Distributed File System)  Consistency  If our users are analyzing millions of documents, they’re not going to care if there’s 15,000 unique Authors, or 15,001
  • 117. What is HBase? 117  HBase is the Hadoop database  Use it when you need random, realtime read/write access to your Big Data  This project's goal is the hosting of very large tables -- billions of rows X millions of columns - - atop clusters of commodity hardware  HBase ia an open-source, distributed, column- oriented store modeled after Google' Bigtable: A Distributed Storage System for Structured Data
  • 118. HBase Web Site 118
  • 119. What is Google BigTable? 119  Bigtable is a distributed storage system for managing structured data that is designed to scale to a very large size: petabytes of data across thousands of commodity servers  Many projects at Google store data in Bigtable, including web indexing, Google Earth, and Google Finance  Bigtable has successfully provided a flexible, high- performance solution for all of these Google products
  • 120. Google App Engine for Java 120
  • 121. What is Amazon S3? 121  Amazon S3 is storage for the Internet  It is designed to make web-scale computing easier for developers  Amazon S3 provides a simple web services interface that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web  The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers
  • 122. Application Architecture with S3 122
  • 123. Amazon S3 Growth 123
  • 124. Software as a Service 124  Software as a service (SaaS, typically pronounced 'sass')  A model of software deployment whereby a provider licenses an application to customers for use as a service on demand  SaaS software vendors may host the application on their own web servers or download the application to the consumer device  Nine out of ten companies plan to grow their use of software-as-a-service (SaaS) in the next year, according to a survey by Gartner
  • 125. The Explosion of Web APIs 125 ฆFrom
  • 126. Top APIs at ProgrammableWeb 126 API = Application Programming Interface an interface that a software program implements in order to allow other software to interact with it
  • 127. Top Mashups at ProgrammableWeb 127  In web development, a mashup is a web page or application that combines data or functionality from two or more external sources to create a new service
