Optimize Facebook News Feed Presence

Issie Lapowsky discusses the tactics of how to optimize a business’ Facebook news feed presence at Inc.com. She suggested people can use EdgeRank to calculate three statistics:

1. How often two people interact on Facebook?
2. How many comments and likes a particular post has? And
3. How old the post is?

These statistics can certainly help business identify the popular messages and post the “right” messages to reach the target audience. In addition to EdgeRank, there are some other tactics:

1. Initiate a post with a question. Raising a question at the beginning is more effective in drawing responses than putting it in the end.
2. Fill-in-the-blank posts can also help advocate discussion.
3. Do NOT use industry jargons.
4. It is fine to ask for comments and likes.
5. Post photos and video of an advertising campaign and ask for feedback.
6. Interact with your friends’ or fans’ friends/fans.
7. Create a welcome page for new users.
8. Add Facebook’s “Like” button on your company’s website.
9. Know when your friends/fans read your posts and upload the messages at the time when they are on Facebook.

I believe Lapowsky’s suggestions are helpful. One of my research projects is also on social media, with the attempt to answer a contemporary question discusses here. I hope I can share my research findings with you soon. For now, how useful do you think of these tactics?

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

How to choose the best credit cards for travel (By David Mai)

  Traveling in a Post-Pandemic World If there was one thing the pandemic taught us, it was that everybody became hesitant and unwilling to travel. Shaver (2020) of The Washington Post shared an interesting tidbit in which Americans were actually staying home less during the pandemic, according to research that tracks users' smartphone data.  The quarantine fatigue affected nearly everyone who lived an active lifestyle or loved to be out and about in the world. It was simply not a safe time, and too many regulations were in place that deterred consumers from traveling for leisure. Consequently, the COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted the travel and hospitality industry. Yet, there is no doubt that people will yearn to travel again when the pandemic is fully lifted. Around this same time, credit card companies have developed unique ways to retain business with consumers who look to maximize rewards and benefits for their journey.
