We are pleased to share with you the news that we will be working with Social Bits a Galway based Social Media technology company. We will be working together to expand the online presence of Socialmedia.net on the various social networking platforms.
As our output of articles grows we have concluded that it is time to bring in some dedicated expertise. We know from our own behind the scenes measurements that the most effective way to use social media is by making practical use of the results from the monitoring and analysis of our data.
Social Bits specialises in measuring the return of investment in social media from a business perspective. Social Bits also develops Semantic Web strategies to help companies organise their data. It is an absolute necessity to measure your social media outreach as we know measurement is extremely important in the effective use of social media.
For those of you who haven’t come across it yet we have a Facebook Pages site for Socialmedia.net.
Facebook is huge with 500 million users plus, and we are think it is time to increase our level of activity there. We know from our own articles such as How to Influence on Twitter that engagement comes through activity and activity leads to further engagement and so a virtuous circle is created.
As well as linking articles and blogs to our Facebook page we also plan to share more of the workings around their creation. Pictures that we like that we couldn’t fit into a piece. Quotes that didn’t make it into articles, more video and audio clips that we would hate to have disappear forever but have no place on the main site for.
In the spirit of transparency we will also show some our thinking. We have already got a picture up of a font pattern that we have decided to use. We also posted Emma Creighton’s Jogo video as a standalone from the main article on her work because we thought it was that good.
However, we will continue improving and developing our main site. We are very much looking forward to the Drupal 7 upgrade in September which will allow us to enhance all sorts of things both at the front and the back end of the site.
Our ultimate ambition is to build a strong community of people who are interested in the subjects we cover and the stories we write about.
