Transcript of Social Media Sites: Pro's and Cons
Links to facebook and twitter
Could be used with ease when out of the office
Not overly expansive
Limited amount of companies use it 'Paper.li is a content curation service. It enables people to publish newspapers based on topics they like and treat their readers to fresh news, daily' Pros
Works well with Facebook, and very well with Twitter
Is a great way to collate interesting and standout tweets from people that you chose
Can work well when at an event, as all tweets related to the same thing could be seen
Not enough people use it on a daily basis compared to the standout platforms
Seems much more ideal for hobbies rather than a business 'Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard'
'Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web'
'Our goal is to connect everyone in the world through the 'things' they find interesting' Pros
Ties in very well with blogging formats
Can be used via Twitter & Facebook
Is a good way of collating visuals and info to then show to clients/people interested in the business etc
Is a relatively good visual guide to the development of a product
Not overly company orientated but this is beginning to change
Seems harder to promote and gain an audience compared to the likes of Twitter & Facebook 'Instagram is a fun and quirky way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. Snap a photo with your mobile phone, then choose a filter to transform the image into a memory to keep around forever' Pros
Very quick and easy to use
Ties in with twitter extremely well as a picture on Instagram can act as a tweet on Twitter
Useful if working on a project and want to show others what you are doing
Not that versatile but is only a free app 'Yelp was founded in 2004 to help people find great local business'
'Every business owner (or manager) can setup a free account to post photos and message her customers' Pros

Will be used in siri searches and apple maps
It will be used to search for businesses, food outlets and professional services
Doesn't seem beneficial

'Vyclone makes it easy to share. It's filming genius' Pros
Very effective and instant
Has a range of effects, much like Instagram but in video form
Still fairly new only having been released in May
Is only an app therefore can only be used on an iphone
Can currently only connect to Facebook 'Facebook is a social utility that connects people with friends and others who work, study and live around them' Pros
One of the biggest social platforms
Great way to advertise a company
Links in with an array of other social media sites
Easy way to showcase video via youtube, vimeo etc
Great way to advertise and cover an event
Susceptible to spam Facebook is all about the button,
the more likes the more important a page becomes 'Twitter is a real-time information network that connects you to the latest stories, ideas, opinions and news about what you find interesting. Simply find the accounts you find the most compelling and follow the conversations' As we all know Twitter is one of the most commonly used forms of digital marketing, with there being over 500 million users, many of whom are businesses.
There are also a variety of tools that can be used in order to utilise a Twitter account to the best of it's ability, especially regarding a business.
These tools are as follows
Brandfluencers 'Commun.it is probably one of the best relationship- management tools out there. It helps you to cultivate your followers on Twitter and make important connections to build your business'
A great function is that it will look into your most up-to-date feed and organize your followers into three groups
Engaged Twitter users
By grouping users you can focus on not only influential users but people who have previously shared your content and have taken the time to engage with you Another tool that your business can use to quickly latch onto conversations is inboxQ. Because every question is an opportunity, it is important that you listen to questions that people are asking on Twitter.
You can use inboxQ to find questions people are asking on Twitter
All you need to do is set up a campaign by inserting keywords for the questions people are most likely to ask in your industry Tweriod is quite straightforward- it analyzes your tweets and your followers' tweets to give you the best time and day of the week to tweet in order to get the highest visibility for your content.

As the tool is relatively new it isn't as accurate as it could be. Brandfluencers Pros

Conversions- Can link videos back to company website and social networking sites via each video
Easy to share videos and embed them on other sites

Very limited and difficult when it comes to personalization and customization
Can't choose or add your own ad network, therefore videos may feature unwanted advertising
Can sometimes be inconsistent when streaming, this is normally down to high traffic
