Ten Social Media Strategies to Define a Successful 2012 | Social Media Today

Via Scoop.itToday’s Transmedia World

Welcome to another New Year! While everyone else is busy thinking about or already breaking their New Year resolutions, it’s time for us to take a moment to rethink what it is we can really do better now and over the next 12 months. I’m sure you heard it everywhere last year. Experts found the highest blog mountains and social network skyscrapers to Tweet in concert, “You need a Facebook brand page! Why are you not on Twitter yet? Have you checked-in on Foursquare? Hurry up and get set up on Google+. If you don’t get on social media, you’re going to go out of business!”   And, here you are…still in business, I presume. But like any keen business leader or entrepreneur, you’re avidly thinking about your next move and your social media strategies for 2012.   You already know that running the show in a mode of “business as usual” is not only limiting, it’s terribly complacent. But if you are to change, you need to better understand exactly how technology is influencing the behavior of your customers and why.   The truth is that you can create your company brand pages on every social network you can imagine and you won’t succeed unless you know whom you’re trying to reach and where, what it is they expect and value, and how these channels represent a meaningful opportunity for you and your consumers to connect.   You first must answer what’s in it for them and what’s in it for you.

Curation Coming To Television and Film: Channelisation

Via Scoop.itToday’s Transmedia World

“Jon Miller of News Corp may have predicted 2012 will see the “channelisation” of the web, but he really means a renewed focus on curation…”   “Channelisation implies that media corporations such as News Corp will be the ones controlling the playlist of content, but 2012 will see the role of such organisations fall back to providing content for others to turn into a wealth of different “channels” where the barrier to entry essentially falls to zero.”   Key highlights curated from the article:   Curation of niche interest: channelisation “…opening up of video on demand services from all these channels will allow much smaller organisations to provide cross-channel curation.   If the channels who provide the content are still showing their ads before, during and after each show, then curators could start channels focusing on more specific interests and smaller niches than a broadcast channel could do – there will be channels dedicated to crime shows, medical shows, shows with appearances from certain actors, and more.   A user will just have to think of a single genre or idea that they want to watch in a show, and there will be a “channel” or that.”   The curator
“More interesting than the drive to smaller and smaller niches, which could, at least in part, be algorithmically generated – will be the focus on the curator.   If a user trusts the taste of a journalist, presenter, blogger or other figure – they may be more interested to watch the content that user picks than the content programmed for any particular channel.   …These curators could add to the content by providing commentary from their own knowledge of the content – offering a place where consumers could find a new love.”     Social Curation
“…Equally, groups of curators could join together to offer more regular programming than the one-off playlists of individuals, basically creating “channels” without any of the budget and monetary constraints of a real channel.   They would not have to pay for licensing as the content owners will bundle ads with the in-stream content, and so people will curate out of love and interest rather than having to focus on budgetary constraints.”   Read the full article here: http://www.techfruit.com/2012/01/12/channelisation-curation/  (Curated by Robin Good)

Three Reasons Barack Obama’s ‘Consolidation’ Scheme Is Really Smart Politics @barackobama @michelleobama

Via Scoop.itToday’s Transmedia World

Barack Obama asked for the authority, held by presidents between the Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan, to re-organize agencies of the executive branch. Specifically he wants to combine Commerce Department’s trade and finance functions with the Small Business Administration; the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative; the Export-Import Bank; the Overseas Private Investment Corporation; and the Trade and Development Agency. In other words he wants to create one major agency that deals with promoting American business. It’s great politics for several reasons.   1) Everyone believes that government agencies are a confused mess because it happens to be true.   2) Obama gets to talk like a business leader. He wants to cut through bureaucracy and rest-tape, and make government more consumer-friendly.   3) It undercuts his image as a big-government liberal and blocks Romney (or any Republican) from getting a perfect campaign contrast. Obama can simply say, “I’ve asked Republicans to give me the authority to slim down government and make it more efficient.” A Republican presidential candidate would have a hard time arguing against a plan like this. At the same time, republicans don’t want to give Obama easy victories either. Of course, there may be many reasons why this could turn out to be bad policy.   The Export-Import bank guarantees loans to foreign buyers of American goods like Boeing’s Airplanes. Why should it be combined with parts of the Small Business Administration. Doesn’t this set up a situation where small businesses are competing for the same government resources as giant exporters like Boeing?   We’ll keep exploring this re-organization as details become available.   Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/three-reasons-barack-obamas-consolidation-scheme-is-really-smart-politics-2012-1?utm_source=alerts&nr_email_referer=1#ixzz1jMaldkmi
