Overview of the supplemental resources that are available as part of this course.

Resources Overview

Finally, there’s a way to grow your social network, increase engagement and site registrations without having to Tweet and Facebook 24/7. Through a relatively new type of service called a user management platform for the social web, you can invite visitors to your destination website to use their Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, MySpace or Open ID credentials to register or log in when they visit.

So rather than have to fill out some lengthy form, they can log in with one click.  When they do, you get the opportunity to capture and keep much of their profile data and check out their social graph. The result is a huge increase in site registrations, a much more engaged community and nine times the referral traffic.

In this audio resource, Tore Steen, VP, Marketing and Business Development at Janrain and former VP of Business and Corporate Development for WebTrends explains the concept of a user management platform for the social web on non-technical terms, makes the business case for implementing the service and the future of marketing on the social web.


01:24 -- An explanation of the Janrain user management platform for the social media, which offers a way for visitors to your website to use their Facebook, Twitter and 14 other social networking credentials to register for your website.

03:03 -- The benefit of having visitors use Facebook or Twitter credentials to register when they visit an organization’s destination website.

04:14 -- The top three preferred identity providers today in order of importance are Google, Facebook and Yahoo, but business-oriented sites tend to draw more Linkedin registrations and visitors to consumer oriented-sites tend to use their Facebook identity to login.

05:24 -- The richest profile and social graph data that a website can receive is from a Facebook user, because Facebook has the most information because of their “like” button and the information user’s store on theirs profile page.  Other identity providers are currently jockeying to find a way to capture and provide a more detailed portrait of their users.

06:43 -- There are ways to determine who the most influential people who’ve “liked” your organization on Facebook are. You can see what other brands they’ve liked and when they publish to your Facebook Page.  On average, for every Facebook Page post that someone makes on your Wall, there are an average of nine inbound referrals generated to your Facebook Page from that person’s network of friends.  Looking at whoever brings the most referrals to your website is a great way to see who your most influential Facebook friends are.

08:02 -- If you’re using a user management platform for the social web, every time someone uses their Facebook credentials to sign into your site, you get a list of their friends so you get an understanding of their social graph. On the Mahalo site, if you use Google to authenticate, you can bring your address book and invite your friends through an automated pick list.

09:18 -- Given that Facebook is known for random terms of service changes, organizations can mitigate the risk of relying solely on Facebook for access to their constituents by capturing and storing the registration data in their own contact management database as well.

11:48 -- Making it easy to share web pages or content was the rage a couple of years ago, but today, it’s about making it easy for users to share activities or the ways they participate online. CitySearch uses Janrain to allow visitors to post a link to the restaurant reviews they write to their Facebook newsfeed, driving richer engagement.  Other activities that could become advocacy or public relations opportunities through integrated sharing include e-commerce transactions, white paper downloads, charitable donations or any other online activity that someone might want to share with their friends and followers online.

12:48 -- Responding to the growing interest of their customers in fortifying their presence in the mobile environment, Janrain optimized their user experience for a variety of mobile browers first, so smart phone users would have a positive experience logging in with a handheld device.  They also released a software developer’s kit to embed the Janrain user management platform for identity management into custom apps.  zoday, Janrain supports iPhone and will release support for Droid in the fourth quarter of 2010.  

13:57 -- Because they’ve seen greater adoption of apps by Droid users, Janrain decided to offer Droid support next, though they intend to eventually support Blackberry as well.

15:24 -- The old metrics were quantity of site traffic, time spent on site and passive page views.  But the new metrics on the social web are about quality of site traffic, interactions that occur and active sharing.  it’s a shift from measuring traffic, to measuring actions.  The easiest way to calculate the ROI of a user management platform for the social web is to compare the number of unique visitors that registered prior to deployment, to the number of registrations that occur after deployment.

16:25 -- The second new metric to monitor is the referral traffic from the social sharing feature and see how many of those referred visits result in some sort of transaction, be it a CPM, e-commerce or lead generation.

17:49 -- User management platforms do require a web developer to get up and running, but the products have thus far been largely embraced by web development community, because it solves a very specific need for marketers, and insulates developers from having to innovate a solution from scratch.

19:06 -- Janrain does have WordPress and Drupal plugins available, but they require some coding to get up and running.  They’ve also partnered with Kick Apps and integrated their user management platform into that solution as well.

21:24 -- End

Facebook Automation: Vendor Briefing

omniture-facebookOne of the most commonly asked questions these days at my Social Media Boot Camps is how do you measure the ROI of a Facebook marketing campaign?  With 500,000 million users and 11 percent of all time spent online, the potential of Facebook for public relations and public affairs professionals is huge. But given how basic the measurement options are at Facebook Insights, if you do hit it out of the park,  how do you prove the impact of a Facebook marketing campaigns on the bottom line?

In this episode, Jeff Jordan, product manager, social media and video measurement and Tim Waddell, director of product marketing for the Omniture business unit of Adobe talk about audience segmentation, sentiment analysis and having your Facebook page brandjacked.

Through a global partnership with Facebook, Omniture SiteCatalyst,Discover and Search Center Plus report the ROI of Facebook marketing campaigns by monitoring activity on Facebook Pages, inside Facebook Apps, from Facebook Ads and activity through Facebook Connect/Open-Graph, which extends Facebook functionality to destination websites.

The basics of the Omniture Facebook marketing campaign suite are outlined in this short video.


05:11 -- Omniture Discover, an advanced segmentation tool, which can be used to discover which of your Facebook audience segments generate the most revenue.

08:37 -- Omniture intends to launch an analytics component for monitoring sentiment by keyword.

10:38 -- In previous episode of this podcast with Rob Key of Converseon, he said beware of any listening provider that claims 90% accuracy with computers.  A discussion of just how far off accurate sentiment analysis is, and using it as directional data and for spotting potential trends.

13:36 -- Earlier this year, Nestle had their Facebook page brand jacked by Greenpeace. People where flocking to their Facebook page in droves, posting their disapproval of the company’s use of palm oil, which they believe is helping to push orangutans into extinction.  A discussion of how, if at all, Omniture might help a company protect its Facebook page from being brandjacked by grassroots activists.

16:11 --  In a previous podcast with US Navy public affairs officer Jim Hoeft, we learned that Operation Deepwater Horizon’s Facebook Page was literally overwhelmed with thousands of comments during the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf, which the page administrators had no practical way to export or analyze globally.  How do communicators mitigate the risks associated with launching a social networking presence that can be impossible to manage in the event of a crisis?

18:43 -- Using analytics software to determine influence and analytics package rankings.

21:51 -- End
Facebook Measurement: Vendor Briefing

Why is it some Facebook wall posts get likes and comments, while others get none?  When is the best time to post, how often should you post, are there certain words that generate a higher response rate?  What’s the science of procuring engagement on the world’s largest social network?  

In this episode, we explore what makes a great Facebook wall post?  The best shares aren’t random.  There is a method behind the madness.  Listen to this podcast with Buddy Media director of communications Joe Ciarallo (@joeciarallo) and find out how to create effective Facebook wall posts based on a research study his company did on the shares of 200 name brands over a 2-week period.

Joe also talks about how to optimize your status updates for Facebook’s Edgerank so fans see it their newsfeed.

Best Wall Posts: Industry Research

Facebook marketing tips and Facebook marketing strategies from Amazon, Spotify and Qype, presented by Facebook partner engineer Simon Cross and Qype Country Manager for France Vincent Wermus.  
These three companies are using Facebook to address a longstanding problem marketers have had with social media: Most channels provide no demographics on who’s listening.  Think about it.  RSS is a great distribution tool.  It’s effective, efficient and cheap, but you have almost no idea who’s reading your blog or listening to podcast, and no what they think about it.
Facebook Graph API Extended Info Prompts
These savvy marketers are using Facebook’s Graph API to collect basic demographics on their visitors and request permission for extended demographics in exchange for premium services that improve the functionality of their websites.  When you have a rich make a market for your product and services.
This audio resource explains why the power of the Facebook platform is not so much Facebook.com, but rather, the connections, identities and interests of the network’s users.  Using Amazon, Spotify and Qype’s Facebook integration as case studies, the talk suggests the social networking giant is much more than just a as dotcom destinations.  It is a non-technical discussion of the Graph API, which can be used to let visitors bring their Facebook friends and interests with them to a website.

Facebook Like Buttons: Deep Dive

What makes social media marketing so elusive for old school marketers is scalability.  An individual’s social network is tiny compared conventional, mainstream media audiences. The prospect of going head to head with a million audiences of 12 seems impossible. 
In this special audio resource, recorded at Le Web in Paris, Facebook account executive Xavier Leclerc explains how Facebook Pages are being used by brands to get fans to recommend their products and service to their Facebook friends, and there’s nothing more trusted than the advice of a friend.
La Coste’s 3.8 million Facebook friends have 112 friends collectively and they’re combining Facebook Page publishing with Facebook Ads to continue to expand their social graph. Find out how they’re doing it, Facebook’s future plans for FBML, best practices for Facebook Page Marketing, best practices for Facebook Ads, Facebook’s own scaling challenges and the tangible business benefits of marketing with Facebook Pages. 
Facebook Pages & Ads: Deep Dive

Why use Google+ when there’s always a new social network? What are the benefits of using Google Plus?  What are the advantages of using G+?  And how, if at all, will Google+ impact Google search, if it’s successful?
Think about it.  Over the last 7 years, online conversations have moved from blogs to social networks. The most engaging status updates, tweets and shares generate conversations, edging them up to the top of the stream.
On the other hand web pages are ranked largely by inbound links. While these published, referring links are no less useful than they once were, there are also fewer of them today for Google to count. 
Comments, likes and shares aren’t inbound links, but they have become important measures of influence.  If Google can’t figure out a way to integrate social signals into search, Page Rank is at risk of obsolescence.
Does Google+ potentially give Google search the social signals it needs to stay relevant?  Is the introduction of G+ Circles siginificant?  Should businesses be thinking about how to use Google+ in their social media outreach strategy?  Or are we essential just trading the measure of influence for the measure of popularity?
Social media and content strategist and President of Convince and Convert Jay Baer (@jaybaer), talks about Google’s new social web offering and tells you why to join the 10 million other who are currently figuring out how to use Google Plus.
Topics Discussed:
1:55 - Online content has gotten smaller, with an activity stream of what’s happening now constantly changing. Are Facebook status updates, wall posts, tweets and shares the future of the web? Jay explains how Google+ could help Google stay relevant through the shift from pages to streams.
4:17 - With content creation moving away from page views to short, microbursts of information, Page Rank is becoming less useful. Jay talks about how the Google page rank algorithm has been the fundamental premise of SEO for years and the potential downfall of the page rank formula in the new world of social object oriented content.
5:53 - Who has more influence online: content creators or content curators?  Have we gone too far in the other direction by exchanging the more measured, foundation principle of Page Rank for the impulsivity of likes and comments? Jay cites Matt Riding, who mentions the pendulum swing where it may be the status updaters who receive a disproportionate amount of attention, rather than the writers of original content.  Jay explains how Google+ gives the search giant a way to bake social signals into its search algorithm.
7:48 - In a recent blog post about Google+, Jay says that Google swallowed it’s “we can do things different pride” and out the best of Facebook, Twitter and FourSquare in G+. The result: using Google+ may be better than other social media tools because it does less; it has a concise set of features and doesn’t try to bake a cacophony of features into a single interface. 
12:11 - Jay talks about how to use Google+ Circles.  With the new drag and drop interface, using Google+ Circles gives you the chance for a “do over” to get your friends lists right. Eric mentions a recent episode of  Media Hacks #262 with Mitch Joel (@mitchjoel), Chris Brogan(@chrisbrogan), and Hugh McGuire (@hughmcguire)  where they discussed this new feature ad nauseum.
18:34 - Jay calls Google an algorithmic cake trying to add social frosting, while Facebook is a social cake trying to add an algorithmic frosting. The algorithmically based Google adds a social layer with Google+; while socially based Facebook tries to go algorithmic with Edgerank.
19:53 - Google already has a plethora of ancillary online services, like Gmail, Google Maps and YouTube.  Google+ gives it a chance to vertically integrate these services with a social wrapper and use them in a way that enhances the overall user experience.
22:48 - The nasty little secrets of black hat SEO and the question “Is Google Broken?” Jay discusses the shared characteristics of “Search” and shares ideas for shutting down the content farms and improving local search.
25:39 - Google, Adwords and G+.
27:56 - How should business take into account new social network when developing a social media strategy? Jay points out that you need to be clear that your business strategy is simply not about collecting “likes” or “fans”, but that you see a resulting behavior change – like buying the products.  If your strategic plan is how to use a tool, you will always be playing catch up. How should business use Google+ to support their social media strategy?
31:30 - What is happening to the trends of referral traffic? Jay’s blog has already seen more traffic from Google+ than Facebook.
33:58 – End
Jay Baer on Google Plus

In this audio resource, recorded at Le Web 2011 in Paris, Christian Hernandez, Director of Platform Partnerships at Facebook discusses “The Power of the Graph" and explains why social design and engineering is the future of social marketing.
