Social Media Round Up January 2016


Introducing Audience Optimization for Publishers

This month I came across this article written by Peter Roybal. It may be a short article but it's jam packed with easy to understand descriptions of just exactly what this new update is and sends you straight to a Get Started section so you can do just that. If you are planning to use Facebook Ads for Business this is a must to look at!

How to Get Rid of an Imposter Facebook Account

These really do happen every now and then and it can feel truly invasive. Fortunately there are procedures in place to protect you from these types of account, they can at times take a while but most of the time are reasonably smooth to remove. I have shared articles from Facecrooks a few times, it's a great source!

Facebook Search has Arrived! Well not here but soon...

This is a way to keep your evergreen content out there! Customers will be able to search your own posts on your own Facebook Business Page and actually find them! This tool is a great way to bring people back to your page on a semi regular basis to look for content. I of course will confirm when I can that it is due to be here, watch this space!

Livestreaming Coming to Facebook For All!

Mari Smith put up the above video on the day it was released throughout the US and it should be rolled out over the coming weeks to everyone else. This will be a game changer for the mere mortals out there like us. We don't have Verified accounts or thousands of followers but with this tool we could well get this if our material is clear, honest and engaging. Now all we need is the courage to use it!


3 Twitter Automated Tools

This is a bit of a dated article (September 2015) but nevertheless still needs another airing. It's strangely enough one of the most asked questions I have had this month and I don't like to just mention 1 tool so I frequently suggest this article to clients for their review. There are many more of course and over time I have moved from these to others but I find these are very simple to use and also have free options.

Useful Blogs

Ian Anderson Grey of Seriously Social recently put up a blog post on the Social Media Summit.

How to Get More Followers.

Jeff Bullas pulls no punches with his most recent post about

11 Excuses Serious Bloggers Don't Make.

I will finish up there for now and start looking for February's Round Up. Please let me know if there is anything you wish me to cover and I will do my best to find up to date content for you.
