Facebook & Social Media Marketing (10 min)

  • Social Media Marketing - Social media marketing has three important aspects:
    • Creating buzz or news worthy events, videos, tweets, or even blog entries that attract attention, and become viral in nature. Buzz is the piece that makes social media marketing work, it replicates a message not through purchase of an ad, but through user to user contact.
    • Building ways that fans of a brand or company can promote it themselves in multiple online social media venues. Fan pages in Twitter, MySpace of Facebook are exactly this.
    • It is conversational. Social media marketing is not fully controlled by the organization, it allows for user participation and dialogue. Potentially a badly designed social media marketing campaign can backfire on the organization that created it. That is the reason that SMM campaigns must fully engage and respect the users.

Quick Overview of Beginning Facebook (5 min) 



Recent Changes in Facebook (5 min) 


News Feed

When you first log into Facebook, you’ll see the the News Feed.  The News Feed automatically picks the stories it thinks are most important to you based on how many friends have liked and commented on them and various other factors.  Events that used to appear in the Highlights section are now back in the News Feed.  This includes when friends are tagged in photos, make friends, become fans, join a group, and RSVP to events.

Live Feed

Once you’ve caught up on the important stories in the News Feed, you can switch to the Live Feed to see what’s happening now.  The Live Feed is not filtered and shows all the posts.  The cool thing is it will continue to update in real-time while you are logged in, so you get a sense of hanging out at a digital party where everybody knows your name.
