  3. 3. Com 322: Social Media Matthew J. Kushin, PhD | Shepherd University Social media Audit Guide Questions PART I. Organization’s Social Media Overview 1. Voice & Style It is important to note the style or tone (for example, are they playful, serious, positive, funny, relaxed, etc.) the organization uses on their social media. This is conveyed through text in the posts, profile description, and other social content. It is also conveyed visually through color schemes, profile photos & graphics, images shared, etc.  Is the organization consistent with how it portrays itself visually and textually across social platforms? o Best way to do: Go to their social media account or blog and check it out. o Look at the last dozen or two dozen posts. 2. Social Media Publicity  Look over their website. Do they mention their social media presence? If so, how? Is a link present?  Are they driving traffic between their website and social media sites? (e.g., do they link to their Instagram page on their website? Look over their twitter posts – are they mentioning their Instagram or other social media? ). In what ways? 3. Stats / Measurement  For our client (ShepComm): Access this information by logging into keyhole.co and selecting “social media account analytics”  For our competitor: Access this information by logging into keyhole.co and selecting “social media account analytics” o Unfortunately, we don’t have access to all of the data of our competitor. PART 2. Conversation Analysis This is a key component of your social media audit. It is a look at the conversation going on around the brand. 1. What are they talking about?  Look through some of their social media posts. What are the sorts of things this client seems to post about? 2. Who follows them?  In Keyhole: Look at “Follower Insights” page within the account tracker for each account. This is accessible under “Social media account analytics” 3.

How often are posts about them being made? How many users are posting? What is the engagement of those posts? What is the reach? What are impressions?  In Keyhole: Look at the “social listening & campaign tracking” tracker for both ShepComm and our competitor. Explore the “dashboard” page where you will find the answer to all of these questions at the top highlighted in a yellow box. 6. Are the mentions positive / negative / neutral? 7.
