Dog in front of fire, with a look that says, you are going to share, right?

We also added the ASPCA to our new non profit channel. Check out all the ASPCA social profiles here. Or, directly at their website.

Google Plus has changed the cover image layout and cover image yet again. Now, the minimum is 480x270 px.

The new image size is a minimum of 480x270 px. As you can see there is plenty of room to make it larger, just keep the aspect ratio the same.

This video was recorded by OfferPop during the special Twitter seminar called "How Top Brands Engage Consumers.".
Here are our raw notes which we will be exploring in more depth later:
Twitter great for customer service. Larger brands have multiple twitter handles. One dedicated to custom support.
AE uses Twitter heavily for "games", contests, etc.
Favorite "shout outs" from customers or third parties that reference you.
Ecommerce sweepstakes - referral - share with a friend and you both can win
Conversational vs dictating - Is this how you speak with your friends?
Share humor, establish brand personality, voice of the brand
Bringing brands to life.
Establish a brand "language" guideline.
Define goals. Establish KPI's.
Biggest challenge data analysis
Visuals, visuals, visuals!
Visual content drives twice the engagement.
Design content for specific platforms vs just reposing same item across all platforms. *Generally, people have a preferred platform.
Limit updates to one "link".
For those in a position of having Sponsorships in posts, the sponsorship has to provide relevant value to audience.
Based on analytics of your profiles, establish a regular schedule.
As always follow 80/20 rule.
Who is your organization is the "brand voice" gate keeper?
Prime social KPI's - engagement, reach and growth.
Of your followers, who are the "influencer"?
Fun campaign is random gifts to "influencers".
Your social profile, foot print, is part of your companies value.
What are your goals? What are your goals? What your goals?

In an officially sanctioned "penetration test" by an undisclosed cyber security team, experts penetrated a government agency by creating a fake social profile of a woman named Emily Williams.

Social Media as a Gateway

by Anny Solway at ThemeFuse.com

Social as gateway

It’s important not to confuse the tool with the job where social media is concerned. Social media websites have some significant advantages to them as marketing tools when compared to other options. For instance, the biggest investment that businesses have to make in their social media campaign is the time that they put into it, rather than money.

Just as the point of using a hammer is to build a house, not to pound the nail, using social media is not really an end in and of itself. Social media is a means to an end and it’s important to keep this in mind.

What’s the Goal?
