|Con on Center Stage! #SocialCafe 20160426|
engagement is tricky but could be easy. Depends on audiences and platforms
it was on Hootsuite when I first began using it. Out if fear I have not tried again
What's you take on creating engaging post?
It was a good little chat session! Thanks
If a post pre-scheduled has not went as planned. What happened? Which platform?
I would like to continue as well.
Thanks for hosting, these chats are always fun and educational
Thanks for hosting! Lots of good info here today!
I'm up to continue chatting. Anyone have any social media topics to discuss?
thanks for hosting!! this has been fun!!
Not sure! I actually just learned of it about two questions ago lol that may be a question for
It's been fun! Thanks for joining us for our 30 min Look forward to chatting next week. (& feel free to keep on chatting :) )
I guess that means I'll have to come back and chat again
Another great tool, to keep it "real" is >> building Twitter Relationships
yeah I can't agree more to that too! attention span are so short nowadays and it's even harder!
I'll definitely try them out.
Hey you two >> You are popular here!
very true, attention spans are so small these days, you gotta grab it quick or not at all
what's buffer like? Haven't heard too much of it
is another one, especially if you want to work with media
I use quite regularly. Yet I am interested in other scheduling platforms.
A3 I like Hootsuite. I want to upgrade but I need to be more $ stable and actually have more content and reason b4 I do
Anything specific, or did you come up with your own algorithms and formulas?
A3: I don't have any, I am still trying to figure out Hootsuite
A3. As mentioned in previous post, I am familiar with hoot suite- just learned of buffer. Any other suggestions?
A3 hey hootsuite is mine too!!
Scheduling is essential when you have a lot of products or info to push
A3: When I was in HS, most of us used to use Metrics to track our followers.
Quotable Tweets >> Your personal advice based on our topic tonight. Then, I embed it and you get credit :)
Based on that.. does anyone have any quotable tweets that they want me to embed in that article? (this may become a thing :) )
A3) My favorite tool would be Hootsuite
Exactly, they never showed up and I hard
As we are nearing the end of our 30 min, I'm sensing an article coming out of this Twitter Chat ...continued ...
I like the questions tonight
It sounds like (i.e. scheduling) works for some & for others, it needs to be balanced in other ways, less time, etc.
I couldn't completely do away with it. All my groups that constantly post drive me insane but I need 2 know info
No, not at the moment unfortunately😅
Just guessing here.. Two scheduled posts that were important to go out at that time?
A2 I don't make restrictions. I try to respond to as many people as possible on all platforms.
I found FB was turning into a zoo and I stopped using it
I tend not to like scheduling my posts. I had it not work twice and that was enough for me to quit
A2 No, I don't put any restrictions on. I try to respond to people as much as possible.
Q3 What are some of your favorite tools to help you stay "balanced" in and
A1 I use socialmedia platforms to schedule, remember who my audience is before deciding on a platform
There are so many platforms and they come and go. Some I was following 10 yrs ago don't exist anymore
Good one, I love hootsuite! I also use buffer and many other tools.
A2: No I don't, I probably should
A2: No actually I've never posted restrictions on here. Is it better to do so?
I feel the same. I don't often have ppl needing/wanting to reach out to me
Judith - any suggestions on how to track the progress?
A2.No, but if necessary, you could always throw that disclaimer in your bio or something
A2.2 I may start asking ppl not to tag me in comments on FB anymore, too many shares of random things going on
In other words, it might be a pipe dream to think we can do it all?
yes because nobody likes waiting for a reply forever. & it's always good to leave a contact that you can be best to reach out to
A2 If I were more popular I might but for the time being instructions or restrictions are not necessary
A2 no, I probably should have when I first started using Twitter since I was unfamiliar with how to use the platform, tho
A2) I don't post it but I do mention it to people prior to giving them information on contacting me.
Q2 Do you ever post "restrictions" or "instructions" (like .. best place to find me.. or "I don't respond to Twitter DM")
A1.2 I think it's also important to remember to view other platforms. Sometimes I forget to check a couple
A1: I try balance and respond to everyone, but it is hard to keep track of everything
That reminds me I'll put it in a Q2, inspired by you :)
I think it works best for me because it's easier for people to access for some reason.
Nice way to put it! I could get lost (i.e. like on Pinterest!) if I didn't find some balance lol
No actually, but I would consider it.
A1 I would balance mostly on Facebook because the platform has a bigger sharing range. I can post and connect links on FB
That is a good idea Does that work well for you? Like, "Hey, find me on FB.."
Judith - have you ever thought of (or tried) like a timer method.. (I get 60 min to social network)
that's good. Also, try and show acknowledgement of all posts even if u can't get to all. Like = I saw this
A1. Using different tools to manage and schedule social media post.Sorta like hoot suite
A1: I would definitely limit my interactions in order to keep track of the progress
A1 balancing is difficult. Want to answer all but there may be too many.
A1 Time is always an issue. You have to pick your platforms according to what your interests are.
A1) I usually just spend time most on Facebook over all other social media accounts I own.
A1 I use a combination of automation; selective networks; time management
I was thinking of deviating slightly. Q1 How do u social media engagement? Ex: only focus on a few; spend a few min ea
It's the sum of the parts...
Ok, so lately, has been sort of mirroring .. opening the topic to all of and not just LI

A4) definitely Twitter and LinkedIn
Please feel free to join this or any other that are either helpful to you or of interest!
Thank you for the chat tonight!
Thanks for letting me join this tweetchat and hang out on social media with my peers from school.
A3) not measurable, but I have followed ppl after meeting them or even prior to if I know I'll meet them soon like speakers
I'll be dropping off now Thanks for joining us! Any queries on what I blogged about please feel free to contact me!
My 1st SocMed experience was with live streaming as a musician I moved to Twitter a few yrs after
A4: It depends. I like twitter and instagram if its more personal, but I enjoy LinkedIn if its more professional
Might want to consider too!
A4. Mentions and Hootsuite.
A4: Any sort if dashboards such as will allow you to communicate and monitor your social media content.
A4: Combination of Twitter and Instagram. However I am looking into live streaming.
A3 Some connections remain in SocMed but others evolve into real life relationships
Q4) What's your preferred tool(s) for making connections on ?
A3: I used to miss opportunities at work events, because it was way too busy to stop and talk to everyone.
A3: Unfortunately some connections may be lost if you don't keep up to date with them.
A3: Yes and no. I've managed to communicate and attend events where I meet different individuals working in the PR profession.
A3 I notice an improvement in my followers' quality that over the last year or so
A3: yes, I try to add connections if I meet someone in the job world. This helps me on LinkedIn a lot of the time!
Many people have to overcome that dread of reaching out to others on !
A3 I have not kept track. But the goal is to have steady growth. So you have to figure out a plan how to keep that consistency.
I Agee! You never know what connections you'll make until you put yourself out there
This is a smart initiative. I wish you great success.
A2) I don't have a specific method, I try to develop a connection if I notice similarities or just by simply communicating
Q3) Has anyone had any measurable success with developing their following/connections? Why or why not?
Thank you this might prove useful
A2: I use analytics to observe my progress and see what content my followers are interested in.
A2. Just go out and do it. Seek out connections and grab opportunities as they arise.
A2) After an event, I try to tweet about it (or search for photos) and connect with other people at the same event (i.e. chefs).
A2: Yes. I try to update my social media with new material and communicate with my followers.
Thank you!! I will for sure!
Check out that link I just posted, it leads to a series on my blog on the subject
A2: I dont have a method really, I would love to learn if anyone does anything to build more connections!
A1 I came to social media to follow people who knew more than I. The followers came by themselves after
Q2) Do you have goals for how you develop your following/connections & a methodology to do this?
this is true! I guess I'm more interested in the people rather than how many followers u have
A1) More specifically, I work in hospitality (food and beverages) and it's really hard to "network" on the job, so this helps.
Really no difference there!
A1: I think everyone who is on a social media accounts wants to create and grow a following. This shows who you/your brand are
Have you thought out how this will help you?
A1. I'm on social media to learn and connect, not necessarily to gain a following. I would like to know how to for the future.
A1) To connect with people that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.
A1: I'm on social media to create connections that will help me move forward into my career in PR
A1) I wouldn't say I'm here for a following, more so to build connections. You never know where a mention can land you!
