LinkedIn & BranchOut (Facebook): How are they Useful for Your Business Success?
A LinkedIn competitor is BranchOut. Several digital strategists have said that once you are IN, using a big application, like Facebook, you tend to want to stay there a while. That makes it worthy of a quick look to see if BOTH LinkedIn and BranchOut (a Facebook app) deserve your time. This can combine well with looking at the strategy choices on this website (see the chart on the Strategy page of this site.)
Apps...that allow you to stay in one place (Facebook) and get things done...have merit.
Apps (applications) that allow you to stay in one place (Facebook) and get things done, like seeing how you can assist the careers/aspirations of friends as well as yourself, have merit.
Think of your own experience with social media. Once you are working in Facebook or twitter or LinkedIn or reading a blog, do you switch over to another application easily?
BranchOut, when it was new, was getting some heavy use on Facebook. I'm an early adopter using it. Should you?
Great to get this very timely update. Check it out! I'm sharing it with our learning groups of coaches, consultants and business owners learning about social media, including Facebook for business.
Here's my tweet about it:
Social Media Marketers need insights and analytics to manage Facebook fan pages. Facebook, as you might know, provides fan page analytics. It is available to Facebook page administrators, and works with pages that have at least 30 LIKES.
This article outlines information available directly from Facebook Insights, and then show how to take Facebook page analytics to the next level with Unilyzer, a business intelligence platform adapted for social analytics.
First, let’s cover the basics. Facebook Insights information comes in two categories: USERS and INTERACTIONS:
- Monthly Active Users – number of active users during the month.
- Daily New Likes – number of daily new LIKES.
- Total Likes – the cumulative number of lifetime LIKES.
- LifeTime Total Likes – line graph showing lifetime number of page LIKES over time.
- Daily Active Users – line graph showing daily active users over time.
Below is an example of a line graph provided by Facebook Insights:
- Gender: Male | Female
- Age: 18-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, 55+
- PageViews - total hits to your Facebook page.
- Unique Pageviews – total unique logged-in users who visited your Facebook page.
- Tabe Views – the tabs that were viewed visitors to your Facebook page.
- External Referrers – top referring external domains to your Facebook page.
- Media Consumption – after you post a Facebook video, photo, or audio clip, the number of times those things are consumed by viewers to your Facebook page.
- Daily Post Views
