  • In the past you had the mic – you got to control the conversation – and there were a limited number of channels you needed to reach to get your message out. Influencers were easy to identify because they controlled other microphones.
  • Today, the people who once stood behind the microphone are now just one more member of the conversation – on more equal footing with everyone else. Now you – and the previous influencers – are just a few voices out of millions.
  • India was instructive to me because I started to understand how this seemingly chaotic state was organized. There, not only are there a lot of people but traffic includes people, animals, bullock carts, scooters, autorickshaws, cars, trucks, etc. – all pouring through the streets with seemingly no rules. It is a highly complex system. Somehow, they self-organize. What I learned for that:
    One person has no hope of trying to ‘manage’ it so you need everyone to do a little bit – you need everyone to see and fill vacuums and gaps
    Understanding cultural queues (three quick honks) will help you avoid accidents
    Cows are sacred and unpredictable – accept that and go around
    There is no safety net – insurance is unheard of – if you screw up, it is going to hurt. Accept that, deal with it, and move on.
    Suspend disbelief
  • Above all – PR & Communications needs to be in lock step with customer’s experiences with your product or service – and set expectations lower so that customers are delighted.
  • Give them a reason to come and socialize
  • Have regularly scheduled events – cadence is important
  • Be Multi-modal: Text, images, video; Asynchronous, Synchronous
  • Make it valuable (contextual/relevant)
  • What are the risks?
  • What is our responsibility to protect? And whom?
  • Tools – used correctly – give us leverage that we don’t have on our own.
  • Measurement is done for many reasons:
    To compare
    To win
    To understand
    To fit correctly
    To repeat
  • Account, reconcile, and balance our intentions with reality

    47. 47. What You Need To Do • Know where you want to go- measurement is not all that useful if you don’t know what success looks like • Understand data influencers – if you don’t know how to change a measurement or its cost, it is also not all that useful • Keep it simple – the easier it is for everyone to understand, the better. Three clear metrics are better than 20. • Develop accounting standards – what are your priorities and values and how well does your budget reflect them? • Don’t forget your common sense. Measurement is one guide post to good decision making, not the sole factor. Resource: http://www.thesocialorganization.com/social-media-metrics.html
