Colourful Facebook Profile Pictures Take Over the World

Is this another quick opportunity for Facebook to experiment and get data about human behaviour? It’s a good one! Story source: The Atlantic “Were all those Rainbow Profile Photos Another Facebook Experiment?

From other news…

Facebook is not the only technology company that showed its support for marriage equality. Apple has been supporting benefits that covers same sex partners since 1993. Google, Amazon and Microsoft also filed friend of the court papers in a U.S. Supreme Court case involving the Defense of Marriage Act, according to CNET. Those companies insisted that the lack of federal recognition of same sex marriages negatively affects company morale and makes tax benefits complicated.

And, have you seen all the header updates – Google, WordPress… etc

LinkedIn Professionals Take Note!

Profiles, let’s get back to basics (high unemployment means we need to make sure you are up to date!)

Top 10 things to do (or not do).

  1. Profile: clear head shot
  2. Profile: clear headline statement (use keywords)
  3. Profile: add contact details
  4. Bio: Use keywords.
  5. Bio: Be clear. Focus on what YOU want and promote that.
  6. Not so obvious: include 8 years on employment information (or 3 jobs)
  7. Not so obvious: say what the company does before you say what you do
  8. Not so obvious: use high level statements about your role – no dot pointed roles and responsibilities that make you scroll on for pages.
  9. Networking: Use the groups wisely and sparingly – don’t make it look like that’s all you do? That said, get involved.
  10. Networking: Read a persons bio before offering the deal of their life (in the work they already do). Don’t email an offer before establishing a relationship or connection with them.

Bonus tips:

Social: Congratulate, comment, share appropriately and be friendly – but professional.

Publish: On topic, relevant, interesting. Best content being FAQ’s FACTS and TIPS

CHARLIE-HELEN ROBINSON ON-AIR; DRIVE TIME TARGETING OVER 50’S

With Michael Smyth

Social media birthday’s

There seems this whole new etiquette around social media and the celebration of our birthday. It’s true, it’s an easy way to stay in touch with people, like networking on an annual basis. But let’s face it, Facebook has always struggled with the overwhelming volume of birthday posts if you get more than 50 or so… I’ve always got well over 100 and many start hiding behind a collated list, leaving me incapable to reply (which is kinda rude). Anyway, I was intrigued this year that Facebook now present to you a list with all your wall messages (problem was, it only picked up 9 of mine). At least they are trying?

My example:

birthday

LinkedIn always seems to do well in this space… providing auto messages for birthdays, new jobs, new pictures etc that you can simply click and send… a good one for the busy business person. Let’s not let that practice get too impersonal though?

It’s social media; the people have spoken.

For example, Peter Greste. People took to the social medias to demonstrate disappointment at the seven year jail sentence, and support for a journalist who was essentially just doing his job. Journalists, politicians, and the community at large used Twitter to send their messages as soon as the news broke. Continue reading RADIO ABC 891; 26 JUNE 2014; SOCIAL MEDIA NEWS
