THE #SocialToday SHOW – Tuesday 30 August

Here’s THE #SocialToday SHOW with my insights on the week’s social media news including exciting new features from Facebook, Messenger, LinkedIn and Twitter. I gave you the news last week that LinkedIn have re-introduced hashtags (to mobile at least) and they’ve no officially confirmed. Find out how excited I am!….plus regular features:

  • Question time – Do you blog? Please tell me about your blog in the Comments below.
  • My number of the week – 75. In the latest quarterly survey from Sprout Social, 75% of social media users said they’d bought a product because they’d seen it on social media.
  • Secret social media tip – Keep your regularly used hashtags in a text file or similar so you can copy and paste into the description of your Instagram posts.
  • Tools talk – rapportive.com. An extension that integrates Gmail with LinkedIn.
  • And finally – Journalist’s Twitter account suspended for tweeting Olympic gifs.

The SHOW is aimed people who work in or with social media – enjoy the recording below:
