Cobra post sting operation on social network advertising
Social networking has grown exponentially in its popularity over the past decade by bringing people together across the globe. Marketers are now starting to see how they can benefit from social sites like MySpace, Facebook, and Twitter because they can take advantage of the users’ demographic information and target their ads appropriately. There are different forms of social network advertising.
This year $ 3.8 billion will be spent on social network advertising worldwide, with a large portion of this spending coming from US markets. As Internet usage continues to grow in developing parts of the world and social websites gain popularity overseas, social networking advertising spending outside of the US will start to play a major role. Social advertising is an important new way of reaching customers because marketers are now becoming part of the message that is directly delivered to the people.
There are three major classifications of Social Network Advertising: The first type is direct advertising based on your network of friends. This is the most effective format but is also the most controversial. On Facebook, your decisions can be influenced by an action your friend has taken. For example, you may see on your newsfeed that your friend Bob has just bought a CD from MusicWorld. Because people make many of their purchase decisions based on their close group of friends, this can be an effective way to influence consumers. This is considered controversial because it can be equated to exploiting personal relationships with your friends and raises concerns about privacy.
The second type is direct advertising placed on your social site. This is a traditional form of web advertising that is minimally effective. These ads are presented as bricks at the tops of pages or as banners running down the side of pages. The advantage of placing these on social sites is that advertisers can take advantage of demographic data on your profile and target the ad directly to you. Also, these ads can be placed by individual developers on their application pages through ad networks. They have access to the same demographic data and can generate income for developers and giving advertisers a more engaging way to reach out to social users. These types of advertisements are minimally effective because users are bombarded with these ads everywhere they go on the Internet, leading them to largely ignore their presence.
A third type is indirect advertising by creating groups or pages. This is an innovative technique in which a company will create a page or group that users can choose to join. The page is used to build up subscribers or fans. It can be used to market a contest, a new product, or simply to increase brand awareness. Each day, these pages post to users’ newsfeeds reminding them of promotions or new products. Sometimes these pages post videos or ask questions of their fans to engage with their consumers and generate interest in their products and brands. This can be a very effective marketing tool because these groups grow very quickly. If one of your friends join these groups, it appears on the side of your page, prompting you to “like” the page as well.
How to Make a Social Network from Scratch: Part 20 – Allowing Users to Add Each Other as Friends
So you have heard about it on the reports, read about it in the paper and you still have no idea what all these people are talking about. No problem, I have you enclosed guys.
What are social networking sites?
We define social network sites as web-based services that allow individuals to (1) construct a public or semi-public profile within a bounded system, (2) articulate a list of other users with whom they share a connection, and (3) view and traverse their list of connections and those made by others within the system. The nature and nomenclature of these connections may vary from site to site.
While we use the term “social network site” to describe this phenomenon, the term “social networking sites” also appears in public discourse, and the two terms are often used interchangeably. We chose not to employ the term “networking” for two reasons: emphasis and scope. “Networking” emphasizes relationship initiation, often between strangers. While networking is possible on these sites, it is not the primary practice on many of them, nor is it what differentiates them from other forms of computer-mediated communication (CMC).
All that social networking refers to is people coming together on a website to discuss similar interests. What! That’s it?
Yes, there is lot of ways to place it and revolve what this is, but in a nutshell that is it guys. These are a very dominant way to acquire a group of knowledgeable people to contribute what they know and how they learned. Not always are these groups about awareness, but in most cases they are.
The cause that these sites are super powerful as an online dealer is that you can meet people and get to recognize them. Most people appear at selling items like you actually have to sell an item. What I mean by that is that you can become a power seller of any product on these sites, not by trying to inform people to buy, but by making friends. Yes, accept as true it or not, it has been verified that people are more likely to buy and tell friends about products that are offered by somebody that they feel they know.
Social bookmarking sites are very similar to these network sites, the variation being the focus on sharing links to popular blogs, videos and pictures online. These sites have an incredible power to grow website traffic and raise your Google search engine listings immediately if you have a lot of friends on them!
So stop trying to sell and learn how to make some new friends and get prosperous instead!

Coaching Tools – Social Media Marketing – Too Much & Too Little
You would not walk up to someone at a party and say “hi, my name is blank and I would like to show you my new product” so don’t do that when you are working in social media. Act like you would if you were talking to people at a party.
Introduce yourself then find out about the other person and what you can do for them. Find out who they are and what they are interested in. When you approach someone at a party you begin by talking about what they are doing in their lives and you are looking for things or interests you may have in common. The same is true with social media.
Endless promotional Messages
Social media marketing is not all about you! Sending out endless messages promoting a product, event or service is no different than spam. It’s not the same as having a campaign – everyone is in business and needs to make money. There has to be a balance between sharing information and informing people of the services you offer.
Never join a group and start marketing to them before you have been involved in the conversation and given something to the group. In fact, you should have given a lot to the group before you begin to market or talk about your products. My rule of thumb is to make five comments a about or to others before I allow myself to promote.
It is also not a good idea to use autoresponders with social media because people know what they are and they are very impersonal. The old saying say “be interested to be interesting” and that is very true in social media. Using an autoresponder says I have a marketing machine going and I am interested it what is in this for me not what I can do for you.
Staying silent and lurking rather than participating
Social media marketing includes the word social for a reason. It is about relationships and you must participate to have a relationship. If you want clients to coach with you then they are going to have to get to know like and trust you. People cannot get to know, like and trust you if you stay in the background and do not join the conversation.
You don’t have to connect with everyone but you do need to participate in groups that are related to your target coaching niche. Share information that can help others in these groups and answer questions that may arise. When you are helpful and serving others they will be attracted to you.
Social media and social media marketing are the new frontier of internet marketing so you must be active in this area to succeed and compete with others in your target niche.
GIRLSASKGUYS STUDY: Millennials Overwhelming Prefer Brunettes over Redheads, Blondes
Hair Color Survey
Marilyn Monroes platinum blonde look may no longer be the ultimate in sexual appeal according to a new study about what the opposite sex believes about hair color and attractiveness.
In a poll of nearly 600 Americans on GirlsAskGuys (GirlsAskGuys.com) a cross-gender question-and-answer social community with more than 10 million monthly participants consumers were asked about preferences in hair color in the opposite sex. Both men and women under 30 overwhelmingly said they preferred brunettes to both blondes and redheads.
What were seeing is that despite a lot of media portrayals to the contrary, people tend to prefer brunettes, said Tolga Tanriseven, founder and CEO of GirlsAskGuys. Its a wake-up call for advertisers, as well as media producers that actively court the millennial demographic. Sprinkle in some blondes and redheads in your productions, but feature the brunettes.
More than 65 percent of women said they prefer brunette men versus blondes (20 percent) and redheads (15 percent); while 49 percent of men said they prefer brunettes versus redheads (30 percent) and blondes (21 percent). In particular, males under age 18 are the most attracted to brunettes, with 55 percent choosing them over redheads and blondes.
Taken on GirlsAskGuys.com the poll was taken by 282 women and 306 men during the month of August.
Both men and women were then split over their preference for either redheads or blondes, which was most apparent for men ages 25-29, who prefer redheads (35 percent) over blondes (15 percent). Conversely, 20 percent of women prefer blonde men, compared to just 15 percent of redheads. The discrepancy is largest for women 25-29, who prefer blondes (21 percent) over redheads by (12 percent).
About GirlsAskGuys With more than 10 million monthly users, GirlsAskGuys is the most trusted online information portal for questions and advice about the opposite sex, leveraging the curiosity of an ever-expanding social community in which girls and guys of varied backgrounds discuss a wide array of lifestyle issues providing candid, practical advice by sharing experiences and opinions.

Social Networking Tools in the Classroom – Part 1 of 5
Haven’t tried it yet?
I find Twitter is the most fun social networking tool – by far. It feels like a game in some way. It offers real time connection and current synchronization with those you don’t get to be with all the time. It shares interesting new happenings that you wouldn’t have known about.
Tweets are limited to 140 characters – so this requires people to keep their posts short and sweet. And, to top it off, it’s low maintenance! Profiles are light and don’t need much updating. The information below may be a little much if this is your first time on reading up, but check it out for a quick orientation to TwitterLand :).
A seasoned twitterer?
This article is designed for us. All in all, twitter is great left as simple as it is. However, a few tools can enhance the experience. After reviewing tons of available apps, these I find are most useful and enjoyable. Try them out and have some fun! Would love to hear your favorites as well.
One of the most fun ways to use twitter is on your mobile phone. Be ready for the times when you think of the greatest tweets with these phone apps:
TwitterFon- for iPhone Users. An easy to use tool built into your phone. This one freezes less and has great capabilities. Auto posts to Twitpic (a great, easy way to share pics on Twitter). It’s all you need! You can follow, unfollow directly from the app. You can also see DM’s and @replies easily. Links posted in tweets also come up very fast (much faster than through Safari).
TwitterBerry- for BlackBerry Users. Although I am not one, this is the BlackBerry App I hear the most about. Take it from Puff Daddy.
Networking: (aka finding more friends you WANT to follow)
Find someone you enjoy reading and follow their followers. Another great way is to search for keywords and see who is tweeting about your favorite topics. Connect with them that way.
There are websites such as Mr. Tweet who suggest who to follow based on formulas of some type, but I find the natural search works best. They are fun to check out though.
You can also learn about the stars of twitter on the Top 100 List. Interesting…
My top picks – who to follow:
The most entertaining twitters are:
@the_real_shaq – Shaquille O’Neal (Yes, THE Shaq. Funny!)
@RevRunWisdom – Rev Run (Deep thoughts, refreshing ponderisms)
@TheEllenShow – Ellen DeGenerous (Great ideas and fun info!)
@iamdiddy – P Diddy (On a lot with uplifting and fun reads)
@sumsei – Jet Magat (Enlightening concepts and entertainment at its best!)
@tferriss – Timothy Ferriss (Author of 4 hour work week. Always interesting info.)
@MichaelScott – The Office Character (I don’t even watch this show, but his posts are hilarious)
@guykawasaki – Guy Kawasaki (Fun, interesting information, but a LOT of posts)
@MACvPC – Mac vs. PC (Funny)
Following: I found that following under 1,000 people was a little too slow for me. I am not on all that often, but when I log on, I like to see the flow moving. Some find it hard to be following so many people, but with the use of TweetDeck, you can keep up on all the things you want. Search YouTube for some videos on that.
Followers: Once I hit 1,000 followers, the number of my followers increases much more quickly each day. It also allows more opportunity for response from your posts based on the chances of them being online at the same time.
Ratios and Balance Baby: Everyone has their own taste here. Some like to follow as many as possible to get more followers. Some hardly follow anyone back. Some people like to keep a balance between followers and who they’re following. Feel what is right for you. Chances are it may change from time to time. I like to follow everyone back that follows me to keep it a mutual relationship, unless I find their tweets extremely annoying for some reason – which is rare.
TwitterKarma is a great bulk follow/unfollow tool in which you can instantly even things out and only follow those that are following you, if desired. Or you can follow back everyone that is following you with a couple of clicks.
RSS Feed automatically from your blog to Twitter. This application automatically posts your blog posts as a tweet on Twitter. Great for sharing what you’re writing without any maintenance. I am writing an article to share more about fun with feeds and will post when it’s ready.
Search, Tracking, & Alerts
Search the history of tweets for any keyword. Here you can also be alerted when people tweet about you or when your defined keywords are tweeted by selecting the options on the right after a search. You can be auto-notified via feed, if desired.
Sync with Facebook
Facebook is my second favorite social media and it has only gotten more fun with the integration of twitter status updates. Warning: this is only a good idea for those who don’t tweet too much. Otherwise, you overload Facebook with your excessive tweets. I’m one of these who tweets more than I like to post on Facebook, so I no longer integrate the two through Facebook. If you would like to set this up anyway, do this:
In Facebook, add the Twitter application to allow auto posts of your twitter updates into Facebook. It may take a few minutes to go through or process once you’re done, but eventually works with a seamless feed.
TweetDeck just added a new feature where you can post to Facebook as well. Love it! This is my top option while working on the computer as it’s fully integrated and most fun.
For those who post more often, you may want to try this set up: I have another service through Ping.Fm which I use when I want my posts to go to both to Facebook and Twitter, while using my phone. Also works well from the internet if you’re not using TweetDeck. To post to Ping.Fm on your iPhone, use Nambu. Try BlackPing for BlackBerry.
@ – immediately followed by a user name is a mention. It links their profile by making it clickable and notifies them of your response.
# – immediately followed by a word is a hashtag. It creates a search of that word when clicked. A popular example is #FollowFriday in which people recommend their favorite people to follow.
DM – A direct, private message
RT – Re-Tweet (re-post of someone’s tweet)
There are apps out there that allow auto-follows, auto-responders, special programs to tweet from your computer, tool bars for your web browser, and so much more. I find all these are unnecessary. People get irritated with the canned responses. And everything else I’ve looked at makes Twitter too much of high maintenance (AKA less fun). However, a quick search on “Twitter Tools” will bring up the infinite possibilities if you are interested. And you never know what new tools may actually be fun to use.
Would love to hear your experience and your favorite apps for Twitter. Please post!
