Social Media News: Google+ super-sized, Facebook ROI, Yelp Reviews matter, #FirstTweet and #Whaling
This week I’ve got tons of fun stuff for you, and some weird stuff. The best part is that I’m bringing it to you in Cartoon format! What do you think?
Google+ is now following the Facebook trend by showcasing bigger photos in status updates on Google+. This is a great opportunity for you to share those awesome photos of your products/services.
Facebook advertising is really kissing up to advertisers; you can now use conversion tracking on your promoted posts not just ads. This way you can really track the ROI of your advertising efforts.
I was granted access to LinkedIn’s new publishing feature yesterday and I fell in love. The functionality mirrors most blogging platforms and it is super user friendly. I suggest you give it a try.
Yahoo is now going to be pulling in Yelp reviews about a business alongside search results for that business in Yahoo. Are you monitoring your company’s reviews on Yelp?
Any chance you remember the first tweet you sent when you joined Twitter? I was scared to think about it but I used Twitter’s new discovery tool, #FirstTweet, and I actually impressed myself with what I had first composed back in 2009. Let me know what your first tweet was.
Are you one of the ones who is #Whaling? Yeah, me either but it’s a new trend on Vine. All you have to do is move your body like a whale, check it out!
Any big plans this weekend? Make sure you share photos with me on Twitter, Instagram, Google+ or Facebook. I’d love to see them!
