Hash when appropriate

Hello Tigers! 

I love Social Media, but what I love more about Social Media is when people truly embrace it.

It’s great that people are getting involved with Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Path and more, more, more…

However, I strongly urge people to talk the right language on the platform that they are posting to. It’s extremely damaging for a brand to post a tweet with hashtags and then let it automatically feed to Facebook. Hashtags are for Twitter so you can follow a specific topic, conversation or sporting match. Twitter handles are for internal conversation to users in both Twitter and other sites such as Instagram. As far as business is concerned, it’s not a good look for your followers and potential clients/customers if they can see that you are being lazy and not taking Social Media seriously but doing a double up ALL THE TIME from Twitter to Facebook. 

You will have users that follow you on both platforms and you have to be aware of this when posting. If it is general news that could be applied to both sites, then do a generic post. On top of damaging for business, it is just plain ANNOYING! 

Normally I would let this slide but I just saw EIGHT posts in a ROW on Facebook that had #hashtags and Twitter @handles. It has become such a problem for me that I am actually considering cutting the news in my feed from the people that post it. In fact, I’m going to modify my settings RIGHT now.

Do you understand…?

If you don’t, then that’s cool, shoot me an email, call me, we will get it sorted!

Hey Tigers

There are a heap of social media platforms out there to filter through and I have been trying to find a new one that I can connect with.

Meporter has been brought to my attention.

“Say you’re driving through town and you witness news happening – an accident, a tornado, a fire or even a crime in progress. Snap a picture or record a video, create a headline and write the news story (there’s no character limit). Then, simply log into Meporter to confirm your location. Select a category for your story and in just seconds you can publish it as local news on your Facebook news feed, your Twitter account, as well as on Meporter.

Readers will see your location, comment on stories and check in as eyewitnesses. If they’re on the spot too, they can post more about the story as events unfold.”

I’ve just jumped on board and yet to share my first story, I’m feeling a little bit of pressure for the first one. However, I am excited about giving it a go and finding the “newsworthy” elements in my everyday life!

If you are already on Meporter then add me “samfreedomtiger” and let me know who you are too!

Check it out:

We hope to see you there!
