How the new iPhone 4S will impact social media /iphone-4s-impact-social-media/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=iphone-4s-impact-social-media /iphone-4s-impact-social-media/#comments Tue, 04 Oct 2011 21:52:01 +0000 Emily Doig- Contributing Editor /?p=3661 Well as you know, the new iPhone 4S was announced last night in California and the features are impressive. Some are saying its not the “revolution” they had hoped for and rather an “evolution” I say, whatever, its a phone… and it just got smarter… maybe even smarter than YOU!

Rather than just looking at the features in terms of a “user” today we are going to have a look at the features that as a SME will help us manage our brands/business social media on-the-go

iPhone 4S features…

-8 mega pixel camera. Perfect for uploading images to Facebook and Twitter of “behind the scenes” shots of your business/ brand. These high quality images will allow for much “faster” to market shots resulting in more “real time” interactions

-1080p HD resolution video recording pretty much the same as above. Great video quality for on the go when you are away from your “normal” environment/equipment. Think vox pops and updates from events/conferences etc

-Siri- Artificial Intelligence… this is kinda cool. “wherever you see a keyboard, you’ll be able to input with voice.”
In terms of Social Media this means being able to update your status or send a tweet. Users will still need to open the app and launch “update status” or “send tweet” however as soon as the keyboard appears then you will be able to “tell” your phone what to update

Building your personal brand using Social Media /building-personal-brand-social-media/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=building-personal-brand-social-media /building-personal-brand-social-media/#comments Wed, 28 Sep 2011 00:17:17 +0000 Emily Doig- Contributing Editor /?p=3636 Last night I was lucky enough to present to CPA Australia in sunny Brisbane on how to build your personal brand using social media. The attendees, all professionals (accountants) all have the task of heading into the office this morning to begin building their personal brands and promoting themselves via appropriate social networking sites such as Twitter and LinkedIn.

For those of you out there who are looking to build your personal (professional) brand here are a few tips from last nights presentation…

-Keep it relevant (don’t bang on in your bio how you are a passionate lover and father to 3 dwarf rabbits, no one cares.

-First impressions count (make sure you have a picture that best represents the”professional” you in your profile

-Don’t be sleazy trying to connect with every man and his dog

-Be helpful and polite

-Offer value in your content

-Only share your best work

So, of course there is much more, but in a nutshell and on limited time before my wireless connection drops out, there is the 60 second guide to building your personal brand.

Facebook changes- clearing up the confusion on the “Ticker” /facebook-changes-clearing-confusion-ticker/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=facebook-changes-clearing-confusion-ticker /facebook-changes-clearing-confusion-ticker/#comments Sun, 25 Sep 2011 23:28:53 +0000 Emily Doig- Contributing Editor /?p=3625 Last week Facebook made some pretty big changes. We blogged about it here but didn’t expect them to happen so quickly. Anyways, we have spent the weekend watching the fallout and of course rumors. This week we will endeavor to squash the rumors and give you the cold hard facts… so firstly, lets look at the new “Facebook Ticker”

There has been so much hype around this and so today we will c over how MUCH activity goes into the ticker. This has to do with your default visibility settings. Here is how to adjust:

Go to privacy settings
How you connect
Edit settings
Who can see posts by others on your timeline?
Select from the drop down menu (friends, friends of friends (recommended) , public (not recommended)

You will notice a change in the level of activity, because that’s the WHOLE point of it.

The Best Day – Making your plans happen /day-making-plans-happen/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=day-making-plans-happen /day-making-plans-happen/#comments Wed, 24 Aug 2011 00:24:34 +0000 Emily Collie /?p=3482 Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW) is only just around the corner, and I wanted to share with you all a fabulous social website I came across that can help any fashionista plan for a busy schedule!

Apply it to any event in your busy day (not only fashion week) TheBestDay is a planning tool that makes it easy to collaborate online to quickly make plans happen offline. Just create a plan and invite a group to vote on options for what, when and where. TBD will collate everyone’s preferences and availabilities to show the best plan for the group.

Once you’ve confirmed a plan you can add polls and lists to sort out the extra details, and share the love on facebook. It’s that easy to make your plans happen… Including all the best fashion weeks events!
