10 Ways to Use Social Media to Promote an Event
Are you wondering how to promote an event with social media? Whether you have a small local gathering or a large conference, social media can be used to get the word out in a powerful way. In this article I’ll reveal 10 creative ways to use social media to increase your chances for a gangbuster event. #1: Create Video People Will Share Because events take place in person, they engage the senses in a way online content can’t. Creating a stellar video with great visuals and sound can not only help drive people to your event, it also increases the chances people will want to share it with friends. Check out this video from Social Media Marketing World 2013 for creative ideas. Here are a few tips for creating a video: Leverage it everywhere, including on your event page, in articles and with affiliates. #2: Give Away Tickets to Create Buzz Nothing motivates people more than the opportunity to win something free!

As a savvy inbound marketer, you're already sold on the value of using social media. But good social media marketing is about more than engagement, lead generation, and wider reach ... you gotta have some etiquette, man. Etiquette? Really? Like pinkies-up-at-tea-time stuff? While social media etiquette might sound like a stuffy practice, this is really just about having good social manners online. Twitter Etiquette Don’t automatically direct message people that follow you. Your followers are smart and already interested in you enough to follow you on Twitter, right? Tip: If you want to connect with people that follow you, do so by sending them a relevant, engaging tweet to start off a real conversation. Don’t over-hashtag your tweet. According to a report by Salesforce, tweets with one or two hashtags receive 21% higher engagement than those with three or more hashtags. Don’t hijack another company's hashtag. Don’t use tricks or bots to get more followers. Don’t only spew your own stuff.

7 Tips for Building a Social Media Audience
Self-proclaimed "social media gurus" are a dime a dozen these days. When it comes to a successful social media marketing strategy, it can be tough for small businesses to sort through the noise, statistics and flurry of misinformation. One statistic we found online, for instance, claims that a Facebook fan is worth about $174 — but ask a small business with 300 Facebook fans if they've seen that $52,200 reflected in their revenues and you're likely to get a skeptical look or chuckle. For small businesses seeking to engage audiences via social media and get the most bang for their buck, figuring out where to start — and more importantly, how to leverage the huge potential of an engaged online audience — can be a daunting task. Let's forget about the statistics and wild claims, and focus instead on good, old-fashioned advice. 1. Beware of "experts" that tout the distorted notion that social media is free marketing.

Why Media Literacy Week Matters for Students
The 1st Annual U.S. Media Literacy Week will be observed November 2nd through 6th. You can help spread the word using the hashtag #MediaLitWk. Here, noted author and consultant Frank W. Baker (@fbaker) offers clear evidence for the need to raise awareness about media literacy in a world saturated by media messages. By Frank W. The news is filled with headlines that continue to demonstrate why teaching media literacy is more important than ever. September 2015: Headline – Most people think native ads are real articles – and they later feel duped (Source) Native ads are vaguely disguised and frequently appear in news feeds and on other websites. (Snip from paid Chevron “native advertisement” in the New York Times) If ever there was a need for media literacy, this is evidence. August 2015: Headline – 2016 SATs Will Put Stronger Emphasis on Graphic Literacy. The article acknowledges that more information is being conveyed visually and it’s vital that today’s students know how to interpret it.

All rights reserved This position statement was prepared by a task force of the Technology Community of National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), and was approved by the NCSS Board of Directors in February 2009. “In the twenty-first century, participatory media education and civic education are inextricable” (Rheingold, 2008, p. 103) This position statement focuses on the critical role of media literacy in the social studies curriculum. Rationale The 21st century world is media saturated, technologically dependent, and globally connected. The ubiquitous and mobile nature of information and communication technologies has resulted in a world far different from that of those of us whose childhood was once surrounded by large box televisions, rotary dial telephones, and transistor radios.

How to outsmart fake news in your Facebook feed
It doesn't have to be this way. Fake news is actually really easy to spot -- if you know how. Consider this your New Media Literacy Guide. 1. Does the story come from a strange URL? Zimdars says sites with strange suffixes like ".co" or ".su," or that are hosted by third party platforms like WordPress should raise a red flag. 2. Mantzarlis says one of the biggest reasons bogus news spreads on Facebook is because people get sucked in by a headline and don't bother to click through. Just this week, several dubious organizations circulated a story about Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi. However, the articles themselves didn't contain that quote nor evidence that Pepsi's stock saw a significant drop (it didn't). 3. Sometimes legitimate news stories can be twisted and resurrected years after the fact to create a false conflation of events. A blog called Viral Liberty recently reported that Ford had moved production of some of their trucks from Mexico to Ohio because of Donald Trump's election win. 4. 5.

Home » novembre Abstract italiano L’ampia diffusione che i social network e le tecnologie di rete stanno avendo anche nella costruzione di relazioni online pone una serie di interrogativi sulla natura dei nostri rapporti affettivi e romantici, su cosa ci aspettiamo da questi e su come si ripercuotono sulla nostra vita quotidiana. Attraverso due contributi della più recente cinematografia, Catfish (2010) e Her (2013), siamo invitati a riflettere su cosa significhi costruire un legame online con un altro essere umano o con una macchina dotata di intelligenza superiore.

La Media Education è una prospettiva disciplinare impegnata nella riflessione sui media come oggetto, strumento e spazio del processo educativo, integrando i contributi delle Scienze dell’Educazione e delle Scienze della Comunicazione. La Media Education offre alla scuola l’opportunità di farsi carico dell’impegno pedagogico nei confronti delle nuove tecnologie e di tutti i media in generale. E si basa su un presupposto fondamentale: strumenti mediatici attuali non solo informano e amplificano i fatti, ma propongono valori e modelli di comportamento, nuove modalità di comunicazione, socializzazione e apprendimento. La Media Education viene messa in pratica sia utilizzando nuovi strumenti multimediali all’interno della didattica (Internet, telefonini, ecc..), che riflettendo su di essi. Oppure, entrambe le cose insieme, integrando i due approcci:

Egyre több olyan szolgáltatás olvasztanak magukba a nagy platformok, amiknek a természetes helye a weboldalon volt.

Továbbra is kelleni fog weboldal, de a szerepe átértékelődik. 2. A mobilnak köszönhető ez is: mindig tudjuk, hol járnak a vevők. Vagy olyan céllal, hogy becsábítsuk magunkhoz, vagy azért, hogy sokkal személyre szabottan tudjunk nekik kommunikálni.
