social media

Facebook is change again, so be ready. These aren't big changes, but changes that Facebook thinks will help with your Facebook experience.

Some will say many of the Facebook changes are in retaliation to the popularity of Google+ over the last couple weeks. This may be true, but Facebook does have the users and from what I can tell these are positive additions to the site.

Lets break it up:

Revamped Friend Lists

Hello form the little Northeastern BC community of Fort Nelson. It is true, Motion Media, is here and helping attendees harness the power of Social Media, specifically Twitter.

It is probably no surprise to many that Twitter is a very powerful tool at a conference. The big conferences in the industry have come to use twitter to extent their conferences. Big ones like Drupalcon, Wordcamp, BC Chamber of Commerce AGM and so on have successfully use twitter.

I really don't mean to always come back and talk about how you must be consistent and accountable when using social media, but it seems to be something that even I have a hard time doing. You see I had made a task for myself to spend a couple hours a week writing a blog post on the Motion Media blog and as you can see, I dropped the ball on that one.

The Problem

Alright, I have spent sometime now with Google+, Andrew and I also talked about it here and I have heard from many of you about what you like about it and what you don't. Google+ isn't public for everyone yet, so if you aren't in yet don't worry, you'll be able to try it out soon.

Last weekend Andrew, Martin and myself all had the pleasure of attending the Social Media Camp that was held in Victoria, BC.

With my job being in Social Media and helping others discover all the beneficial things
about the medium I wasn't sure how much I'd get out of the conference, but I hoped that Martin and Andrew would find some use in the content.

I thought since I have a moment between sessions to send out this quick blog post on where we are. We are at Social Media Camp Victoria.

This little conference is in its second year and is now a two day event, with over 600 people attending. Martin, Andrew and myself are in attendance and absorbing all the information we can to bring back home. 

Last week at some point I watched an interview with Social Media Speaker, Jay Baer, who talked about where Social Media is today. He said very clearly "it is not so much should we do social media, but rather how do we do social media." I thought this couldn't be more wrong for Northern BC.

One question that arises when I start praising Social Media to the millions is "when will I find the time". It seems a lot of people have busy lives and that is completely understandable, but I also think that when running a business you should make time for Social Media as it can be one of you best marketing tools.

I'm not going to drill the point here today, I have done that enough already. What I do want to share with you is a slight case study, or an observation I made earlier.
