Visible Technologies : Social Media Monitoring, Analysis & E

ESPN Responds to Criticism and Publishes Social Media Policy Twitter is a strange animal. One man can tweet about an official change in ESPN's Twitter policy, and the world can respond. In fact, that's what happened earlier today when we reported on Ric Bucher's tweet that ESPN was "prohibiting tweeting info unless it serves ESPN." Just a few short hours later, the situation has bubbled up to a point where ESPN has publicly responded to the situation, going so far as to share their addendum to their rules and guidelines for social networking - the memo at the center of the whole ordeal.

3 apps to check username availability across all sites at once I recently made a half serious post on FriendFeed as to whether or not you would name your child if the domain of their name wasn’t available. Perhaps I was taking it a little overboard but if you ask the same question to any company trying to come up with a name it goes well beyond making sure the domain name is available. Locking down brand names across all social media sites is not just an issue for big companies and celebrities.

Social media analytics specialist reports killer Q1 Home » News, Social Media News It’s not often we get a quarterly financial statement from a privately held firm, but then these are not ordinary times, particularly in the field of social media monitoring/analytics. Who’s the company? The newly funded Visible Technologies, which boasts of a greater-than-doubling of revenues in the first quarter of 2011. The problem with the 114% growth figure it trots out this morning is that we have no idea what this means, revenues-wise.

The best new social media analytics tools of the year (so far) - TNW Social Media 2 September '11, 03:55pm Follow This is the eleventh of a weekly series, in which every week, we look at five social media tools and platforms that have created some buzz over the last week. But with two thirds of the year under our belts, it makes sense to start looking back a bit. For this edition, we’re going to take a look at the best new social media analytics and insight tools of 2011. Brand vs. Brand Relationship: Let’s Not Confuse Them Last night on our weekly PR 2.0 chat on Twitter (anyone can join this weekly chat Wednesdays at 8pm EST. Search on hashtag #pr20cat and join in!), we discussed branding and PR 2.0 and why PR folks (and marketers, that's a topic on integration for another day!) need to understand branding and how it affects their interactions with constituents (or publics). If you've hung out in social media circles long enough, I am sure you've heard “you don't own your brand, your customers do.” Nothing can be further from the truth and why we need to be very careful with how we phrase this as marketers, consultants, agencies, etc.

Venuelabs Is Launching VenueRank, A “Klout For Storefronts” Venuelabs, a company which got its start as Valuevine before a pivot in early 2011, is launching a new service called VenueRank this week at the Geo-Loco conference in San Francisco. VenueRank, simply put, operates somewhat like a “Klout for storefronts,” as it allows brands with multiple stores to compare those against each other or against their competitors using a single, at-a-glance score. Although comparing VenueRank to Klout helps to wrap your mind around the product’s offering, it’s doing it a disserve. Klout is still in its early stages of development, and there’s too much emphasis on its ego-boosting side effects instead of its more practical use cases. Unlike Klout, VenueRank’s potential end users, in this case brands, don’t need any convincing of the service’s worth. The company has been working with approximately 500 brands during beta tests, and is now running VenueRank on 68,000 storefronts across 7 countries.

Seth's Blog: The bandwidth-sync correlation that's wor Check this out. Every once in a while a cool graph pops into my head. Here are a dozen or so forms of communication, arranged on two axes. On the horizontal, they rank from asynchronous (meaning the creator and the responder are separated in time--like a letter) and synchronous (meaning the creator and the responder are in real time proximity to each other--like a phone call). Up and down, I've charted the quality of the medium. Managing your reputation through search results A few years ago I couldn't wait to get married. Because I was in love, yeah, but more importantly, so that I could take my husband's name and people would stop getting that ridiculous picture from college as a top result when they searched for me on Google. After a few years of working here, though, I've learned that you don't have to change your name just because it brings up some embarrassing search results. Below are some tips for "reputation management": influencing how you're perceived online, and what information is available relating to you. Think twice The first step in reputation management is preemptive: Think twice before putting your personal information online.
