#SocialMediaShow – 5 December

Here’s the recording of this morning’s #SOCIALMEDIASHOW with this week’s social media news plus the usual features:

  • Question time – Do you use Twitter Moments as a source of news and information? Let me know in the Comments below.
  • Social media tip – Please watch the video below
  • Tools talk – LinkedIn’s Job Search App. See below for more info and link.
  • My number of the week – 20. The number of vacancies currently available at Snapchat in London.
  • What am I drinking? – It was a St Clements. Not vodka and pineapple as Scott Watson suggested in the show!
  • And finally – There is now a UK Social Media Hate Map. A charity called Ditch The Label has pinpointed the UK’s angriest towns having analysed 19 million tweets for hateful words and phrases. More on this under Useful links below.

The SHOW is aimed people who work with or who are interested in social media – I hope you enjoy the recording below. The next live SHOW will be on Facebook on Monday 12 December at 9.30am.

Useful links from today’s Show

Tools talk
LinkedIn Job Search App (aff link) – If you’re looking to change your job or career, check out the LinkedIn Job Search App. Download on iOS or Android.

Social media tip
Use hashtags on Twitter and Instagram – You may think you’re using enough hashtags to get your tweets and Instagram posts discovered and to find useful news and information but you’re probably not using enough. Aim for 2 on each tweet and 15 for each Instagram post.
