Entering the Social Media Realm: Nonprofits. Design by Emilia. SMEcom Team Teaching Project So now the semester is almost over, and for my Social Media class we had our team teaching presentation on Social Media E-Commerce!
I’m so relieved to finally have it finished, but I definitely learned a lot about social media throughout the entire process. We used so many different forms of social media throughout the project. Our team used google docs to share information and to work on the assignment when we weren’t together. We also used Pearltrees to collect and curate articles we found relating to our topic. One thing that was exceptionally cool about our project was using google hangouts to discuss the project. Overall, I’d consider our presentation to be a success.

We probably could have integrated and/or intertwined our specific parts a bit but tther than that, a job well done. First I wanted to talk about a collaboration tool I just used for the first time last night: G+ Hangouts. G+ Hangout With Teaching Team #ESUSM - @DroMUSIC90 @JenFolger @jfwheeler2003 @DR4WARD Yes, at first it looks exactly like Skype. Another thing that we did on G+ Hangouts last night was simultaneously view and edit our presentation together. My team also collaborated using PearlTrees, yet another social media platform that I have learned about due to #NewhouseSM4. After we did our presentation today in class, we ran some analytics on Hashtracking.com. Screenshot from my #ESUSM hashtracking report.

With social media, it’s no different. With reports of addiction and criticisms of its frivolous nature abounding, Facebook, Twitter and other services typically face some heat.

Report: Consumers more likely to engage with mobile ads. March 26, 2012 Report: Consumers more likely to engage with mobile ads Consumers are significantly more likely to click through a search ad on a smartphone or tablet than they would on a desktop computer, said Matt Lawson, VP of marketing and partnerships at Marin Software, a provider of paid search management services.

Mobile smart devices constituted only 5% of paid search clicks in January of this year, said Lawson, describing the projected increase of paid search clicks by the end of 2012 as “explosive adoption.” Marin Software's report found that consumers were more likely to engage with mobile ads than with desktop ads; click-through rates on smartphones were 72% than on desktops and 31% higher on tablets than on desktops.
