61 Social Media Metrics, Defined Of all the hundreds of social media acronyms and abbreviations out there, I think “KPI” has confounded me the most. I think it’s because the phrase “key performance indicator” always sounds like something you need to be wearing a suit in front of a Powerpoint presentation in order to say.

We at the Buffer blog can vouch for LinkedIn’s growth as our blog has experienced a swell in LinkedIn referral traffic over the past year, up 4,000 percent from last year at this time. Part of that has to do with our emphasis on updates and sharing at LinkedIn, another part has to do with the popularity of LinkedIn contributing a larger audience and more eyes to our content.

Despite some open data initiatives – and calls from the Coalition Government for an army of armchair auditors who will scrutinise public data "at a level that allows the public to see what is happening on their streets" – the results have yet to live up to the hyperlocal hyperbole. 19 Free Social Media Analytics Tools for Marketers We’ve refreshed this post for 2017, check out the latest and greatest social media analytics tools below.

In recent years online social media has led to big changes in the ways we communicate with each other as friends, neighbours, colleagues, citizens, and consumers. Tools like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Flickr have also, of course, prompted organisations to communicate with people in different ways, too. Professionals such as journalists, advertisers, politicians, and PR people now routinely aim to “engage” the communities they seek to influence in conversation, and to foster dialogue among the people previously simply known as their audiences. There are many guides designed to help marketing professionals use on- and offline engagement strategies to boost sales or improve revenues.
blog.hootsuite It’s a predictable pattern: a social network emerges, eager users sign up and love it, brands see an opportunity and sign up as well, then people complain about brands ruining said social network.

Numbers have been crunched, findings analysed, and the report is now ready for release.
