Dec 27 2013
As we wrap up 2013, a few last minute updates will start the year off with a bang. Facebook made strides by adding real-time data in Insights and launching video ads while Twitter allows promoted ads on mobile timelines and tests an edit tweet button. LinkedIn improves content search for influencers and redesigns your inbox to better connect. Take a look at the final numbers for 2013!
Recent Insight updates include the ability for Page admins to get real-time data on post and page metrics. Additionally, Page data is now available back to July 19, 2011 (when Facebook Page Insights first launched).
Being able to see more past data will help you better develop a more effective strategy on Facebook. Real-time updates allow Page admins to watch time-sensitive campaigns closely and react accordingly.
Twitter recently rolled out Promoted Accounts for iOS and Android mobile devices displaying naturally in the mobile timeline.
60% (and growing) of Twitter users access Twitter through their mobile device. Taking advantage of this opportunity and build a solid follower base by getting in front of mobile users.
Directly from your search box, you can now easily find Influencer posts on any topic. Check out the SlideShare to see how it works:
A New Way to Search for Influencer Content on LinkedIn from LinkedIn
This new feature allows you to better connect and find content relevant to you on LinkedIn – use this as a way to join the conversation, build some credibility, and grow your professional network.
Earlier this week Facebook announced they are now officially testing video ads on auto-play. On desktop and mobile devices connected to Wi-Fi ads will auto-play with no sound.
For now, Facebook is not disclosing the price for when video ads are available. Marketers will be able to reach a large audience in a short amount of time – Facebook claims of 10% more views, likes, comments, and shares. Still in the testing phase, it’s undetermined of how this will be received by users.
Giving users a limited time frame to edit after publishing, an “edit tweet” button will be immediately reflected in the original tweet and all retweets. Twitter limits the number of edits and created an algorithm to prevent users from entirely changing the original message.
A highly requested feature, many think this will change the game on how Twitter is used for sharing breaking news. If you see the edit button pop up, send us a picture!
A new design with larger photos allows you to better manage conversations with a preview of new messages. Better navigation will allow you to quickly sort through messages and invitations with ease.
