    Beating Google AdWords: How Social Media Platforms are Expanding Their Advertising Reach

    Many social media sites are trying to push back against the juggernaut known as Google and its mammoth advertising operation. Perhaps it’s no secret how important advertising revenue is to most social media platforms. After all, free services have to find money to operate from somewhere. Fully taking advantage of advertising, however, has been tricky thanks to Google AdWords and its powerful influence across the web. AdWords’ reach is impressive and plays a crucial role in Google’s growth. In fact, AdWords is the mega-corporation’s primary source of revenue. Needless to say, many social media platforms see this and want to expand their own advertising efforts in a push to compete with Google every step of the way. Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn know the value of a more expansive advertising scope, and though each is working independently of the other, it’s fascinating to see that they’ve come up with similar strategies to achieve their goals.

  • The How Many Active Users on Social Networks Infographic

    Earlier this week, I questioned whether social media could replace my need to blog. In my article, I mentioned that Google+ and LinkedIn as social network platforms are able to provide near blog-like functions. Since that article posted, I've already heard comments from my Facebook and Twitter friends that no one uses Google+. I respectfully disagree with my friends. While people like to call Google+ a ghost town the numbers would indicate otherwise.

    Worldwide, Google+ has the third most active social media users with Facebook in first followed by YouTube. Surprising to Twitter fans (I'm one of them), Twitter has only half the active users (271 Million) as Google+ (540 Million). Where did I get these numbers? Over the past couple years I've googled them, but recently I came across Mike Allton's article, Social Media Active Users by Network, via The Social Media Hat.

  • Mailbag: Dwibbles for Social Media Management

    Mailbag: Dwibbles for Social Media Management

    Ever since social media and social networks have gone mainstream, our digital lives have become complicated. There are a number of social media management tools already out on the market that aim to give users the tools they need to better mange, filter, and prioritize the content they read from their favorite blogs and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Almost all these tools fall short of their intended goals and why I'm always on the lookout for something better to come along. 

    Dwibbles LogoIn the CMS Report mailbag, we have an email from Eric Santos, co-founder of a new social media management tool called Dwibbles. I've only taken a brief look at Dwibbles. My first impressions is that Dwibbles is still in the early stages of getting you where you want to go with it. However, Eric and his team knows this and I appreciate Eric's enthusiasm in wanting to tackle this problem. I think if Eric and company can find a way for me to combine the I content I read from social media, news feeds, and my favorite blogs into something better organized and manageable then I would forever be grateful. After reading his email, I plan to maintain my watch on the evolution of Dwibbles and be forever hopeful.

  • Quoting IT: Blogs and WordPress are not dead

    “Blogging has been declared dead at least five times. But that’s like saying creativity is dead, or personal expresion is dead. Ultimately some percentage of the people who get a taste for it through Facebook and Twitter want their own space. And for the most part, that’s a blog.” - Matthew Mullenweg, founder of WordPress, Quoted by Bobbie Johnson, New ‘radically simplified’ WordPress is on the way, paidContent, May 23, 2012

  • Side Project: Taking a look at Unofficial Social Media

    I'm working up a story idea on the success of fan-based or unofficial social media sites over their official counterparts. For example, while Apple Computers has almost no official presence on Twitter (at least from what I can tell), @MacRumors has almost a quarter million followers. Another example, would be a fan-based/watchdog Facebook site called Protect the National Weather Service has almost as many "Likes" as the official U.S. National Weather Service Facebook site. The rise and success…

  • The End of the Anonymous Comment

    Over the years, I have gone on record stating the importance in allowing users the ability to leave comments at this site anonymously. I have always recognized that there is a segment of the online community that likes to submit quality comments online, but they don't want to be required to leave an online trail that can be traced back to personal online accounts. Despite all the trouble I've had with the spammers and bots, the benefits of anonymous comments was always worth it to me in hopes…

  • CMS Report's Ten Additional Stories for 2009

    A couple days ago, I posted CMS Report's Top Ten Stories of 2009. The articles listed were ranked by popularity based by how many times viewed and the rate that they were viewed through the year. Popular stories do not always signify well written articles or are always an indication of personal favorites. Each year, I write a number of content management or IT related articles that I love but for various reasons you the people didn't have interest in reading and sharing. Below are some of my…
