Sell Your Central Florida Luxury Home – List with a Top Producer
Social networking – everyone is doing it but are we doing it right? Nowadays businesses are spending big bucks on improving their brand awareness and this means they are joining their teenage children on all the big social sites!
It seems even the big businesses are having to succumb to the huge advertising boards that are Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn to mention a few. No one can afford to ignore the reach of social media.
So how do we control what is being written about our business? Social media is a public forum so once it’s out there you have to remember there is no going back.
It is not just your business pages that have to be monitored; one of the biggest concerns is naive employee’s posting comments on their social pages about your business.
A social media policy needs to be flexible but clear for all your employees. An outright ban on social media sites will not work; almost all of us have access to a smart phone with all these apps under our nose. Don’t dictate but discuss!
Set your brand and stick to it; this way you will be recognisable and stand out from other similar companies. Talk to your employees, novel idea, but by discussing the dangers of social networking as well as the advantages you may open up a forum of ideas that could benefit you and your business.
Open discussions are less condescending than an email telling you what your employees can and can’t say or do in their spare time.
We have to remember there will always be a small minority of people who will do something silly no matter what you say, honesty and trust is crucial in your relationship with your employees.
Always remember what you are trying to achieve by your social networking; think about your audience and what they want to see.
What about blogging? Blogging seems to be the path to enlightenment these days or certainly to a spot in Google’s good books. Make sure the content is fresh and interesting. Think quality not just quantity! Articles should reflect what your business is about and offer something of interest to the reader whether this is advice or just an informative view on your business.
Think about what your clients are searching for and write about it! Don’t use obscure titles, it may seem clever but your potential audience won’t find you! They are going to search using key words so make sure you include them in your article and title.
Ask questions and involve your reader in a discussion, this makes the experience more individual and draws them in. Remember the better the article the more likely people will share your link driving traffic to your website and potentially improving your customer base!
Working in HR we have to be very aware of Social Media and it’s pitfalls but we also need to remember what a great tool this can be. I try to make my HR Blog personal whilst passing on useful HR information, hope you enjoy it. Let me know if there are other topics you would be interested in, I would love to hear from you.

Social Media Management Software – Boost Your Social Media Marketing
Smart Marketers wanted to take advantage of the fact that people wanted to share a feeling of community by socializing, exchanging ideas, swapping stories and learning about what’s good and what’s not by financially exploiting the Social Marketing World. But they hit a brick wall that was too high to climb. Social Networking is about interacting with people not selling to one another and most Social Networking Websites look down on any type of promotion.
What this created was a gold mine of opportunity just waiting for you to scoop up some profits with an armed guard waiting to shoot you if you try. This situation was pretty hopeless until Niche Socializer came on board. What this is in laymens terms is special software you install on your own server that will allow you to launch your own Social Networking Website like Facebook or MySpace. Your average person could not afford the hundreds of thousands of dollars of programming it would cost to launch a website like this.
Niche Socializer was developed out of frustration by serious Social Marketers looking to cash in on their fair share of the Social Media Frenzy. Since they kept hitting brick walls, they decided to develop the software themselves that would allow the average people to go into a niche and capitalize on the power of Social Media, since with your own copy of Niche Socializer you make all the rules in your niche now. No virtual armed guards waiting to pull your account if you make a commercial post.
What makes Niche Socializer the perfection solution to the Social Networking problem is it allows you to ride the Social Networking Wave without using someone else’s Surfboard. You can create your own Social Media Website to target any niche you choose. One of these websites has everything a thriving Social Media Community craves. You’ll have a site where people will swarm to your front door to get in, and once they’re in, they’ll want to stay forever at their new virtual home you control. That’s the concept and the power behind what this software does.
With Niche Socializer you don’t have to worry about moderators who won’t post what you want. No more asking permission to promote a product. No more jumping through hoops to see who sees what offer and how often. No more paying for little side ads just for a scrap of the profits. This software is the Social Networking Platform you need to allow you to get your fair share of the Social Media Profits out there.
A price for Niche Socializer hasn’t been released as of the time of this writing, however it will be within a week or so and by the time you actually read this there will be a price. I have no idea how much it will be, I wasn’t even clued in to a ballpark price. Over 300 people posted on their website and no one else was clued in. It will be interesting to find out. I do know that as of now, 3 Beta Testers they had try out the software all made multi thousands of dollars per month within a few short months.
I think the key to using Niche Socializer properly if you decide to get it isn’t just to randomly go into any Niche Market. The key is to start a Social Media Website using Niche Socializer in a niche you know a lot about and are also passionate about. They do have great training videos that not only teach you how to get the Website up properly, which they say takes less than an hour, but how to effectively market this website within your chosen niche as well.

Done in order to deter any possible live coverage of Faizabad sit-in that has paralyzed the countrys capital for the past 19 days, these social websites are under absolute blockade as per the orders of PEMRA. Earlier, broadcasts of certain news channels closed down in different areas, following the instruction of PEMRA for all media channels to go off-air on Islamabad crackdown. After putting off-air the News channels, the government of Pakistan has apparently ordered ISPs to block Facebook, Twitter and Facebook in Pakistan. Reports from ProPakistani readers are confirming that Facebook and other social media websites are not accessible on desktop and mobile browsers. However, these websites can be accessed through mobile apps for now. While we dont have confirmations, a number of users in Pakistan are reporting that Facebook and some other social media websites are not accessible for them. Not to mention, government of Pakistan took severe decisions after its operation against protesters in Faizabad backfired and protests erupted across the country. urrently the Facebook and other social media websites are not accessible on major ISPs in Pakistan but we are still in process of arranging an official confirmation on the ban of Facebook in Pakistan. Twitter, YouTube and Facebook are ordered to be blocked in Pakistan. Access to news channels, social media suspended in Pakistan ISLAMABAD: After Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) ordered to take all news channels off air, social media access via internet browsers to Facebook, Youtube and Twitter were also blocked on Saturday. The access to services was temporarily restored after 3pm but was blocked again shortly after. PEMRA directed news channels to ensure the security of their staff while the situation persisted; in light of which, Geo News as per its tradition of responsible reporting was and continues to abide by the rules. Earlier, PEMRA had barred media from live coverage of Islamabad operation under Media Code of Conduct 2015. While Facebook, Twitter and Youtube were blocked across Pakistan on internet browsers, Geo.tv had received reports from certain users who are still able to access the services.

DrupalCon Vienna 2017: Building social websites with Group and Open Social
A lot of Drupal sites are run by only a handful of people. A few power users receive the rights to administer other user accounts, some others can post and publish content and everyone else can just view content and use the site. Its when this scenario doesnt suit your needs that you might want to have a look at the Group module. Group allows you to give people similar permissions like those above but only for smaller subsections of a website. Say you run a school website and you want students to be able to only see the courses that are available for them to enroll in, but nothing else. Or you want to run a social network where users can post content, but only within their sandboxed area on the website. Groups got you covered. This session will be a brief description of the Group module by its author Kristiaan Van den Eynde (Deeson) and explain its key concepts. We will demo how to configure it and then show you how Group is used in the wonderful Open Social distribution. Joining us for the second part of the presentation, Jochem van Nieuwenhuijsen (GoalGorilla / Open Social) will explain how Group enabled a team of talented developers to build a social network using Drupal 8. He will list some of the challenges and show you some of the cool stuff they built on top of the Group module. Open Social is a distribution for building social communities and intranets. The distribution is positioned as the successor of Drupal Commons, taking full advantage of the new possibilities of Drupal 8. The Open Social distribution comes with some extra group configuration. There are two predefined group types in place: First theres the Open Group type: This group type is configured so it covers the most common use case for your community. Users of your platform may join without any approval, and all content placed within this group is visible for members as well as non-members. Second we added configuration for a Closed Group type. Closed groups is configured so that its content is hidden to users who are not a member of this group. In this instance users can only join by invitation of a Group Manager. We will demo our default configuration of the entire group ecosystem in Open Social, how weve set up both group types, the group roles weve pre-configured and some of the lessons we learned from this. This sessions is suitable for developers with some experience with Drupal 8 site building, but most of the presentation should be easy to digest for even the most junior site builders.
