What is Social Networking A social network service enables users to find like minded individuals or people with the same interests to connect with. So a social network is basically that community or social relations. We use social networks to interact with others, we follow them, connect with them, share content with them.

HOW MANY SOCIAL NETWORKS ARE THERE? People are often surprised at how many social networks there actually are, they often think of just Facebook and Twitter. Wait for it... there are literally hundreds of social networking sites, more than 500 in fact.  That’s without counting all of the Chinese and other countries networks such as China's Tencent who own WeChat with 200 million users. . However, out of the 500+ not all are of good quality or exactly thriving but they are available, and might just be the next big thing. Some social networking platforms are obviously more popular than others and many of them you may not class as a social network but if its aim is to be social and to share and connect with other users then it’s often called a social network, social media platform or social site, and you can even include mobile applications in this such as Path a social networking-enabled photo sharing and messaging service for mobile devices. Which network should I be on for my business? Don’t panic though; you do not have [...]

LinkedIn is a professional social networking website with over 200 million members, its a great place to manage your professional identity and to engage with people on a professional level.  So why would you want to how to remove a contact from LinkedIn? People are usually careful about who they connect with on LinkedIn as its not the same as other networks it is usually for work purposes but some people like to be open networkers, and connect with many people, and on LinkedIn these are called LIONs. What is a LinkedIn LION It stands for Linked In Open Networker, it basically means that they will accept invites from anyone, even if they don't know them, where as LinkedIn always used to be the place that you never, ever connected with people you didn't already know.  However things in social networking have changed somewhat since the old days and many people want to grow their networks and reach out to new contacts.  That being said, there are still people that will hit the I don't know this person button and that could get you into trouble on many networks.

Customer Service – The Best and the Worst

By | January 1st, 2013|Categories: Business|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

  Which company saved your life this Christmas  or which company will you not be using again because of their poor service? How was your customer experience in 2012 - I'd love to know. In this day and age, most of us at sometime order goods online, I did most of my Christmas shopping on-line, and there is a lot of trust involved, you need to know that the company will live up to their promises, that they are trustworthy and that you can contact them if there is a problem (Yes, problems do happen, we understand that, to be informed is all that customers ask).  It is helpful to check for reviews on businesses before you order but people seem more inclined to post a bad review for the company that has upset them, than the company that has done as expected. This is why an active social presence is so important, customers can see how businesses deal with people and problems. Some Brands really take advantage of this chance to boost brand loyalty. Even though some of them receive many complaints, at least they do try [...]

The redesign on Empire Avenue – Explained.

By | March 11th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , |

I first blogged about Empire avenue 10 months ago - when I had just started. Back then I didn't realise the impact it would have on my social media strategies,  networks and more importantly I that would find a fantastic community of people that now mean a great deal to me. Anyway - I digress... Empire Avenue have relaunched a new design - which is said to engage you more with your social networks. Most people that "play" Empire avenue have always used it to engage and connect with other users, moving that to their other networks.  I think previously that was the problem, that, people that don't play Empire Avenue do not see it this way at all.  Empire avenue for me, is primarily not a game but is a way to connect and engage with a brillant community of "players".  Empire avenue is fun to play but it should also be part of your social media strategy.  It is possible to connect, interact and engage with clients and/or customers, contacts and like-minded people to help and share, when using this tool correctly. Empire [...]

Just search on a subject on various platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Flickr, and Google plus and make your own story! Storify was Co-founded by@burtherman and @xdamman I've always loved the idea of this, but to be honest most of the time, it didn't work that well for me for various reasons, but now they have made big changes, I hoping that my problems with Storify are all over.  Then instead of screen printing the results like this I can actually embed a story. The changes are ....... A new logo and new look. The search and the editor sides of the interface have been switched, and we have made it easier to add text to stories. Photo searches are displayed in gallery format and pictures shown larger in stories. Saving stories is more reliable. A [...]

Twitter and BBM involvement in UK riots

By | August 9th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , |

Riots that started in London have now spread to other British cities, such as Bristol, Birmingham, Liverpool, Nottingham and Manchester. It has been said that networks such as Facebook, Twitter and BBM have helped organise some of the riots.  Police say that the main culprit however is BBM; BlackBerrys Messenger service as it is/was thought that messages cannot be traced, although Blackberry have said that they will help police to trace people which is a little confusing? I am surprised that if the police felt so strongly that BBM was to blame for the start of the London Riots that it still hasn't been blocked, or shut down. Or is it now because now they have Blackberry to help track people, police want the looters to use it. I assume though that police will see from phone records of those arrested, who those people have been contacted by or contacted to arrange the meet ups, via text or BBM. I do believe that Twitter has been detrimental to the riots, but from a small minority of people,  mostly people thought they were [...]
