  • While many of us social media in talking with other Mozillians, I’m going to focus on how we engage with our users on these channels.\n
  • \n
  • \n
  • Why spend time on social media?\n- It gives us a great way to talk with our mainstream users\n- Social media is our largest 2-way channels with users (whereas moz.org, snippets and email are 1-way)\n- Social media amplifies our messages. It’s built around social and gives our content a viral factor we don’t have in other channels\n- Quick turnaround. It’s low barrier for us, so we can post or respond to issues in minutes instead of days for other channels. \n

  • Let’s talk about Facebook and Twitter. Social media encompasses many other services - including some open social networks - but we focus on Facebook and Twitter because that’s where our users are, so it currently gives us the most value.\n\nFacebook: We’ve added 1.7M relationships this year already, growing from 3.3M to 5M. Most importantly, we’ve maintained a high Engagement Rate with these users, which becomes extremely difficult to do as organizations and brands gain millions of fans on their pages. We’ve been able to keep our Engagement Rate (Active Monthly Users) above 45% this year.\n\nTwitter: A much smaller channel in general. Twitter has 100M users [1] in total compared to Facebook’s 750M [2]. We’ve still seen good growth here, as we went from 360K to 525K relationships this year.\n\n[1] http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2392658,00.asp\n[2] https://www.facebook.com/press/info.php?statistics\n
  • Social media is a 2-way conversation with our users\n- We publish content every day: Firefox tips, questions, brand messages, announcements\n- We reply to users as well: providing support, telling them about features, and signposting to Mozilla sites\n\n

  • Let’s look at how our campaigns are amplified through our social channels.\n\nMore work needed on this slide. To be added.\n\nTo do: Add more key metrics here to demonstrate our success. Include Webify Me results.\n
  • Scaling our reach and resources:\nLocalization - Allowing contributors to localize daily posts and manage SM accounts for their region\nStewards - Training representatives from other groups to be experts in SM\nOptimization - Similar to mozilla.com, testing different types of content to find what works best and \nMore campaigns - Creating experiences that attract new years and deepen existing relationships\n
  • While we’ve seen strong growth and engagement on our own channels, it’s also useful to see how we compare to similar organizations and other top brands.\n\nAs shown in this table, our actively engaged users percentage is quite strong at 49%. And our growth is also relatively strong at 36%, although not as high as popular brands such as Facebook and Coca-Cola.\n\nAdd a note about sample size and dates.\n\nSource: http://monitor.wildfireapp.com/comparisons/172508/fans_followers/mozilla-firefox-vs-google-chrome-vs-facebook-vs-starbucks-vs-coca-cola-vs-oreo-on-facebook-and-firefox-on-twitter#&data=cumulative&range=all\n
