"An umbrella term that defines the various activities that integrate technology, social interaction, and the construction of words and pictures. This interaction, and the manner in which information is presented, depends on the varied perspectives and “building” of shared meaning, as people share their stories, and understandings."

Why Should We Care?
Franchises should focus on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
One Facebook Page, one Twitter account per franchise will ensure there is an enriched level of content on each page.
We can expand on these platforms over time.

Clear profile and cover photos are essential on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Basics | Good Content
Creating good content that is tailored for each platform will drive engagement.
A full and complete profile page displays professionalism.

It is important to dedicate enough time and resource to our social channels or else this great content we are creating won’t be seen by anyone.

Links can drive traffic to your franchise microsites.
Remember to always upload your own photo to Facebook as this will expand the link out.
On Twitter you can add photos to link tweets to make them more visually impacting on the Twitter feed.
Manufacturers will have great content already created that you will be able to share on Facebook pages or Retweet.
Celebrate Positive Customer Feedback
Why not share some positive reviews on your social channels?
Create a screenshot of the review, then upload as an image.

Facebook’s algorithm, EdgeRank dictates what shows up in News Feed and why.
No engagement = No people seeing your content
Always respond to negative and positive feedback:
Do not delete negative comments
Praise customers when they give positive reviews
