Social Media News You Can Use: June 8, 2018

Social Media News You can Use!

As I read through the latest news, blog posts and magazine articles on digital, social media marketing and SEO daily, I pick out the ones that I feel are important to you, the small business owner. Basically, I could go write up an original article with the same information, but I don’t have that kind of time. Truthfully, I couldn’t have written some of these better myself!

Here’s the latest news from the digital marketing world that you need to know:

Facebook News:

  • Has Facebook lost credibility? What you need to know as a marketer...There’s yet another Facebook privacy breach. This time a “privacy bug” was loaded into their system that made all “private” or “friends only” posts viewable to everyone as “public”. Yeah, so the post that you shared with your friend “for their eyes only” can now be viewed by all. However, only 14 million people were affected — out of their 2 billion monthly users. Supposedly, if you were among the affected group, you will be notified.
  • Facebook released a report numbering the fake accounts in their platform. It’s their way of letting us know that they’re trying to clean up their act. They’ve disabled 583 million fake accounts in the first 3 months of this year alone! Of, course, you’re smart enough to never buy Facebook fans or Twitter or Instagram followers. They are not your target market! You need to grow your following organically. Sure it takes a little sweat equity the first month, but it’s worth it.
  • This might turn you off about advertising or using Facebook to promote your business, but the buzz is that they’re still number 1. In testing paid ads for one of my B2B clients, we tried Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Adwords and Facebook beat all the others hands down for the most results. We definitely got more bang for our buck.
