    • Facebook • VISUAL STORYTELLING (and paid) – High quality images…go further • AVOID LARGE FILE SIZE (data concerns and connection speeds…) – Right-size your images, rectangles not squares • VISUAL LISTENING: – Image Recognition – Geo-coded/tagged content
    • Links and Websites/Blogs • Only post links that are mobile-friendly – you may lose half of your social audience over time, if you do not. • Link directly to the action that a social post implies, as mobile users hate multiple clicks
    • Facebook – Tab Apps Emulate tab apps in posts using a “click sniffer,” then diverting to a appropriate responsive site (cookies/Facebook connect telling you “who” to make things more relevant and personalinzed). links buttons Phone Tablet • Polls • Sweeps • Subs • Coupons • Video • App Download “sniff”/detect

    • Twitter for TV Plan content around television: • Scheduled events and programs • Hashtags related to shows, sports, events… • Scenario-readiness • Actionable content: – Coupons • Participant content: – Trivia, polls, scavenger hunts
    • YouTube • In-video text size must be sufficient for smaller screens • Keep it short, to-the-point… • Remove background noises in your audio (mobile viewing/audio is compromised) • Close-ups for clarity • Place URLs to related videos/sites within the video description…aids in navigation.
    • YouTube Drive action (website visits, app downloads, online purchase) through video and the video description: • Dramatically increase clickthroughs by moving the URLs closer to the beginning of your description. • Make in-video URLs as LARGE as possible to be seen on handheld mobile devices.
    • Pinterest for mCommerce Include specific product and purchase site URLs in images and/or image descriptions, AND ensure those sites are MOBILE- RESPONSIVE.
    • Location-based listening & action • Twitter – Geo-targeted (promoted) Tweets to let consumers know about retail offers that vary on a store-by-store or city-by-city basis. • Facebook Local Search – discoverability based on friends recommendations, ratings, location-tags and likes. Include coupons, deals and share promotions on those pages. • All social – align escalation and “engagement” protocols, online-to-offline, offline-to-online.
