Unless you’ve been out of the country or living under a rock you can’t have failed to notice the amount of ‘makeup-less selfie’ posts splattered across Facebook recently. It shows the immense power we have when we exert our digital muscles for positive things. Here’s my analysis of what it means for the digital world.
The success of a social media campaign for more traditional businesses is unlikely to be as popular but we can still learn a lot from the way these music ‘brands’ interact with their audience and gain international success.
Twitter is a big deal for any public figure, none more so than our politicians. While many of them are fully utilising Twitter, many others are failing miserably.
I recently got involved in a bit of back and forth on Twitter with a local politician. While his response was quick, he ultimately refused to answer my question in public.
What’s my favourite social platform? Well its Twitter, seeing as you asked. An awesome platform and you can do so much with it. Set up a programme like Tweetdeck correctly you can be at almost any event on the planet, sell your services or products, keep an eye on what people are saying about you and raise your own profile as well as your brands. You can even have a one to one with almost any company (those who are monitoring their Twitter handle). All in real-time. How can anyone not like Twitter? Read more
Something big is following me. A swirling mass casts a shadow on the periphery of my vision. It has tens – no – hundreds of thousands of people caught in its irresistible gravity. It’s growing constantly, swallowing more, and more, and more, snowballing, ballooning, until it is bloated and stretched, warped and distorted from its original form. The rules no longer apply to it.
Most companies, especially SMEs, recognise the importance of customer service. We can’t afford to lose business, especially with the economic climate the way it is at the moment. Every user is important, and companies need to be pro-active in not only their customer acquisition but also in their retention.
It was 8pm on a Sunday night. It could have been any old Sunday night. Nothing was new or out of the ordinary. As usual, I was scrolling through Facebook on my iPhone. For some reason, it struck me that I spend an excessive amount of time on Facebook, but I couldn’t actually explain what I got out of it.

Twitter is one of those platforms you either love or hate. Some people swear by it, others just go as far to create a profile and tend to leave it there. There are even some who use it as a platform to create multiple personas for the alleged website benefits. I imagine most of these people have their own reasons for using Twitter and have their own thoughts on what benefit they feel it brings. Read more
Twitter has become part of everyday life with over 360 million accounts signed up and live. However for a majority of users see Twitter just as a platform used to share random thoughts within 140 characters a couple of times a day.
Beyond that they don’t get much more out of it. After using it for a while they lose interest and their accounts lay dormant. Twitter is so much more than a board for random thoughts. It can be used in so many ways, providing you with so much information. Here are some ways you can use Twitter for more than just telling the world what you had for breakfast.
Social Media is now part of every day life. If you spend a percentage of your day online then you will almost certainly have a social profile of some sort. Twitter and Facebook are sites a majority of people are active on, with the likes of Google Plus also now very much in the game.
These sites are now so set into our lives that most of us no longer think twice about what we say on them, making them a common place for us to moan. We don’t even give it a second thought. If something has annoyed us then we will Tweet about it.
