  • A shift from one-way conversations to multi-way conversations in which users participate as both creators and consumers of web content. Turnbull, A. P., J. A. Summers, G. Gotto, M. Stowe, D. Beauchamp, S. Klein, K. Kyzar, R. Turnbull, and N. Zuna.

  • Data updated on May 21, 2013Data source: Pew Demographics of Social Media Users: http://www.pewinternet.org/Reports/2013/Social-media-users.aspxThese readings come from a national survey conducted between November 14 and December 9, 2012 on landline and cell phones and in English and in Spanish.

  • People, Objectives, Strategy, and TechnologyKeep in mind that social media is one tool in a larger communication strategy (CDC Guide to Writing for Social Media, pg. 3)Decide on your objective before you decide on technology. Then figure out how to measure it.Consider your overall communications plan, organizational culture, and capacityOnly after defining your audience, objectives, and strategy, can you decide on the technology.The CDC has a great guide which we have included in our resources list: The Health Communicators Social Media ToolkitSamplin-Salgado, M., and A Moore. "Doing More with Less: Efficiently and Effectively Using New Mediahhs New Media." AIDS.gov, 2011.
  • A company can use either a push or pull marketing strategy.A push strategy encourages resellers to order merchandise and push (radio or tv ad) it through to their customers (more old school).The goal of a pull strategy is to create demand among consumers and encourage them to request the product from the retailer. Traditionally, this involved big advertising and sales promotion budgets. However, with the advent of social media, pull marketing is become more common. Finding our “folks” and drawing them in with our messages. “Follow us back and find back more.”Sources: SocialBrite, 5 steps to a successful social media strategy: http://www.socialbrite.org/2009/08/20/5-steps-to-a-successful-social-media-strategy/Source: Message in a box – Designing a social media strategy: http://miab.tacticaltech.org/designingyourstrategyGreat video on Push versus Pull in the Social World:
  • Social networking sites are online communities that allow you to connect with or provide resources to clients, colleagues, family, and friends.Many social networking sites let you upload videos, photos, create a blog, post events, join groups, and send messages.There are many different types of social networks, some professional, others more personal. Typically, users create personal profiles and use one or more of a variety of tools to interact with others on the same network.Two of the most popular social networks are Facebook and LinkedIn. Facebook tends to have a more personal focus, while LinkedIn is for connecting with other professionals.ResearchGate, is a social networking site focus on connecting researchers.Online health communities often help link people with others that have the same illness or condition. They can also serve as a support network for caregivers and family members. Not only do these types of networks offer support, they can also serve as a means of informing oneself as a supplement to the information given by a physician.
  • In May 2011, Facebook published a "Best Practice Guide: Marketing on Facebook" serves as an official resource on how to take advantage of Facebook's advertising products, social plugins, analytics and other tools to grow one's business. Social should be baked into everything you do, not added at the end of a campaign or done on the side. Add an authentic personality to your brand by providing an authentic and consistent voice. When possible engage in two-way conversations with your users. Just like in the real world, building relationships with users on Facebook takes time and requires a long-term investmentFebruary 2012, Facebook announces Brand Pages which incorporate the new timeline, and another of other useful marketing tools.
  • Your Facebook Cover Photo Is Prime Real Estate (depending on resolution this could be up to 40% of your page): So Find Photo(s) That Tell Your Story BestPhotographs have incredible power in their ability to draw us, almost sub-consciously, into stories. And it seems that digesting visual content, rather than the narrative content we’re more used to, allows us to engage a bit more freely and fully than usual.Kanter Blog: How To Create A Terrific Facebook Cover Image If You Don’t Have Resources To Hire A Designer: http://shar.es/s2DZZ
  • Take advantage of timeline for highlighting milestones in your divisions history (through events, milestones, or questions).Your photos and apps custom apps appear at the top of the page. You can customize the images you use for your apps.Action Center: their current causesIn your country shows a clickable map of AI Facebook pages from around the world.Act Now: Join - Donate - Sign up for newsletters - Take action - Earth candleUsing milestones is a great way to highlight all the great work that your org is doing – defined by moments in time.
  • Pinned posts: anchor the most important story to the top of your page for 7 daysStar stories from your page: highlight what you think is important (campaigns, fund drives). Starred stories are highlighted on your timeline and include a star banner.Larger stories: take advantage of larger photos, videos, and links to drive engagement.
  • The admin panel is a place where you can respond to people using your Page and quickly see how your Page is performing. From your admin panel, you can:View notificationsRespond to messagesView your Page insightsAccess your activity log to curate content on your PageAccess the Edit menu to make changes to your Page's settingsTotal reach: the number of people that saw your post.Boost Post: a promoted posts that get additional paid reach in News Feed among fans and friends of fans as a result of using a button on the page. Part of their appeal is that they don’t require page owners to create campaigns (like in Google Analytics) through the more complex ads create tool or Power Editor.
  • With for-profit companies, promotions on social media ultimately hope to make a sale. In social media speak this is called a conversion.Nonprofits are generally not interest in “making a sale,” but many of these organizations use strategies to increase awareness and raise money.Earlier this year, Facebook updated its “Facebook Pages for Causes and Nonprofits” guide (I highly recommend downloading this guide).In May 2013, Facebook expanded its ad-based services and started testing the ‘boost’ and ‘advertise’ buttons (used to be ‘promote’ your post).The primary methods for using Facebook’s Ads to build your community are:Promote Page Posts: get peopleto see and engage with your mostimportant messages.Sponsored Stories: help peoplediscover your organizationthrough their friends.We don’t go into this, but it is important to note that both Google (AdSense) and Twitter (Twitter Ad Program) have paid advertising.
  • Insights provides key metric for each post on your page.Data can be exported and used to measure the reach of each post from your content calendar.
  • A flow visualization is a graphic that a traces a route or a path, like a trail through a forest. Unlike a map, a flow visualization reveals the actual path as it was traveled step by step, including any detours or backtracking that happened along the way.Flow Reports in Google Analytics illustrate the paths visitors take through your website, including special content like Goals and Events. Nodes are points through which traffic flows. The numbers representthe volume of traffic flowing through that node.Connections represent the path a segment of traffic takes from one node to another.Exits indicate where visitors left the flow.
  • The Social reports allow you to analyze all of this information together and see the complete picture of how Social impacts your business.Google Analytics includes four elements define your social impact:Network Referrals: how visitors from different social sources engage with your site.Conversions: Measuring the conversion and monetary value of traffic to your site.Conversion:completion of an activity on your site, for example a completed sign up for your email newsletter (a goal conversion) or a purchase (a transaction, sometimes called an ecommerce conversion)Landing Pages: Which pages and content are being shared, where they're being shared, and how.Social Plugins: Your social plugin data shows you which content is being shared, and on which networks.http://www.socialmediashop.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/sm-monitoring.pnghttps://support.google.com/analytics/answer/1683971?hl=en&ref_topic=1316551

  • In July 2011, there were one million registered applications, built by more than 750,000 developers around the world. This is up from 150,000 apps just a year ago.  A new app is registered every 1.5 seconds.https://blog.twitter.com/2011/one-million-registered-twitter-appsOther stats are from 2010, and could not easily locate updated %s

  • Blogging platforms are online places that host blogs.Three major ones are:Word Press Tumblr – might be one of the most popular. There are themes to make your blog look nice. There are mobile platforms so you can see your blog nicely displayed on a mobile device. Tumblr lets you email or text posts from any mobile phone. Most platforms offer the opportunity to email your posts directly to your blog - so if you have a thought, photo, song, quote, video, links, slideshows - Post anythingBlogger.com via Google
  • There are pitfalls and issues to be aware of when blogging: There is no confidentiality with a blog. Because of the comment feature, there is a slightdelay in conversations; not totally immediate . Writing requirements: Must have good use of language. People will not want to read material that is poorly written.Blogging takes time to produce high quality material, time to interact with readers, and in the beginning, time to learn the technology and web design to make sure the blog is appealingRequire frequent updates – without motivation and a solid base of readers blogs quickly lose their purpose and are abandonedBeware of false information - Work and effort put into creating a strong blog can also be used into creating a blog with false information.Blogs and wikis may give the impression of being authoritative but this is not always true.The authors of blogs and wikis may claim to be experts in their fields; this may or may not be true.Information contained in blogs and wikis may be biased; they often contain ideas and recommendations of the author. Blogging may carry a stigma amongst professional scientists working in an academic setting – the thought may be that blogging may not be a valuable use of time, and that real work fits into traditional formats of research and publication and blogs are not part of that process.
  • So, we offer these tips for blogging success.Interaction – create a space for readers to commentMake sure to add hyperlinks in your posts to add connectivity to other related sitesIntegrate other social media like RSS and Twitter – (actually, twitter is basically a microblogging site)Update regularly – turns readers off to visit a blog that doesn’t have any recent entriesThe idea is to move beyond a static block of written info and progress towards stronger collaborative sharing and knowledge.

  • RSS is an example of social technology.Really simple syndication – constantly scans the content of web sites for updates, then delivers to your desktop or mobile device through an RSS feed. Anytime a website, blog, news item, journal is updated it goes into a feed reader to keep your updates all in one place. The Readers are available from anywhere - mobile devices, pc’sThe icons you see on the right are samples of icons that are used on various sites to indicate the presence of rss feed capability. You click on those to subscribe to a feed.

  • Read RSS feeds using a “RSS reader”, “feed reader” or “aggregator” – can be web-based, desktop-based or mobile device-based. The feed reader is your base of operations. It’s the program that receives and displays updates from sites you subscribe to. The user subscribes to a feed and adds it to one’s Feed Reader (for example Google Reader). The RSS reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new work, downloads any updates that it finds, and provides a user interface to monitor and read the feeds. RSS allows users to avoid manually inspecting all of the websites they are interested in.

  • C&I (Communications and Informatics Competency) from http://www.asph.org/document.cfm?page=851For certain demographic groups social media is becoming a primary sources for news and information sharing (we need to (be ready to) meet them on their own turf – whatever the platformThings to remember:People want to know what you offer them.Why should people continue to receive updates about you?What are you telling them or giving them that they didn’t already know or have?Are you talking with them or at them?From Paranta, CF. Essentials of public health communication, 2011.McCarthy’s 4 P’s are still considered in social marketing:Product - A product is seen as an item that satisfies what a consumer needs or wants.Price – The price is the amount a customer pays for the product.Promotion - represents all of the methods of communication that a marketer may use to provide information to different parties about the product. Place - refers to providing the product at a place which is convenient for consumers to access.
