Hillary Clinton Sticks with Facebook Twitter and YouTube

Hillary_2016_Presidential_RaceOkay, the big 2016 presidential announcement is now officially in the books. Hillary Clinton is running for President in 2016. When the announcement took place, her staff posted a two-minute video to introduce her campaign and posted it on social media for the world to absorb it. A+ for effort and attention grabbing. After watching the video, people who are interested in learning more about Mrs. Clinton went to her website at www.hillaryclinton.com. Her website asks for your email address and zip code to join her on her journey. If you wanted to follow her through social media you probably also noticed the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube icons to the middle right of her website’s homepage. It looks like she’s sticking with the top three social media avenues and did not include: Pinterest, Google+ or Instagram. Does that mean that the other social media networks are not big enough or good enough to include in a presidential campaign? What about LinkedIn where millions of  U.S. business people congregate on a daily basis? Maybe there will be something included on these other social networks in the future, but for now she’s sticking with the big ones.

 

Do you think Hillary and other Presidential candidates should be promoting their campaigns on other social media networks as well? What do you think?

News Report from Facebook: Bringing New Wind to Iowa

Facebook Article By Vincent Van SonData Center Energy Manager

When our new data center in Altoona, Iowa, starts serving traffic in early 2015, we expect it to be supplied by 100% renewable energy, as tracked by renewable energy certificates, from a new wind project in nearby Wellsburg, Iowa.We first started working on this project with RPM Access, a local wind project developer, as we were finalizing our decision to locate in Iowa. Earlier this spring, we transferred our rights to the development to MidAmerican Energy, our local utility, to build, own, and operate it.

 

A New Wind for Iowa
Not Actual – ­ Representation of Anticipated View of Project Once Completed in 2014

Construction is under way, and once it’s completed in 2014, the project will add up to 138 MW of new renewable wind capacity to the grid in Iowa – more than what our data center is likely to require for the foreseeable future. And since our Altoona data center will be based on the latest Open Compute Project designs, we expect that it will join our data centers in Oregon, North Carolina, and Sweden as some of the most advanced, efficient, and sustainable data centers in the world.

When we settled on Altoona as the location for our fourth data center, one of the deciding factors was the opportunity to help develop a new wind project in the state. The project brings additional investment and jobs to the region, and in effect it makes it possible, on an annualized basis, for 100% of our energy needs to be met entirely with one of Iowa’s most abundant renewable resources. We are committed to reaching 25% clean and renewable energy in our global data center mix in 2015, and we will continue to work with utilities and other partners on supply options for our other data centers.

We want to thank MidAmerican Energy, RPM Access, and everyone else who helped bring this about. We have a lot of work ahead of us to help connect everyone, understand the world, and build the knowledge economy – and we will continue to seek out solutions that allow us to do so in the most efficient and sustainable ways possible.

Social Media Tab supports wind energy too!

Was Miley Cyrus Re-Branding Herself at the MTV Awards or Looking For Something Else?

Miley Cyrus MTV Awards 2013

Miley Cyrus MTV Awards 2013

It looks like Miley Cyrus got exactly what she wanted… publicity! Good or bad, it was major publicity. According to several reports, over 360,000 tweets per minute were running through twitter during and after her recent MTV performance. An incredible record indeed!

Many believe she is still trying to re-brand herself. Families still think of her and remember her from her cute and calm days of Hanna Montana. Now in her early twenties, Miley is trying hard to step away from her tween-teenager days and focus on her future. However, many brand experts believe she’s simply looking to show the public that there’s also a mature (some say raunchy), dark side to her as well. Some also believe the Cyrus camp are, “using her fame to bring shock and awe” in order to re-brand a more adult Miley Cyrus that is able to take on adult roles in both TV and movies. But, when it comes down to it, she got all the needed attention. The world now knows that Miley is an adult and that she enjoys singing, dancing and acting in her own way.

What are your thoughts on her recent publicity and what people are now saying about her?

However, when it comes to the fastest growing celebrity segment on Facebook, music celebs kick butt. Looking at the top 10 celebrities with the most fans, 9 out 10 are from the music world.

You’re slowly sinking to the bottom; drowning in posts, accounts, passwords, websites ext.  But you don’t have to be intimidated by social media anymore! It’s time to organize the mess we have on scratch pieces of paper all over our desk into one easy time-saving document. I explain a way to organize accounts with Excel and offer a few easy ideas for you non-Excel lovers out there.

How to organize your social media accounts fast, easy and FREE!

1)      Locate each and every one of your accounts. You know where they are; In the bottom of your purse, in a spiral, on a coffee stained napkin, in your car, at your desk. Find as many as you can, with my organizational workbook you can update these sheets anytime, anywhere.

 

2)      Please Click on the following to access my Excel Workbook.

Border Organizational Worksheet

 

 

My GoogleDocs account, the workbook I uploaded is open to the public. Please save to your own GoogleDocs account and edit as you see fit.

In the Organizational Workbook there’s the following…

1st Sheet- Social Media Accounts, pretty easy.

2nd Sheet- is my ‘Toolbox’, I’ll dive into my toolbox for SEO purposes. For example, you see neighborsgo.com (great for posting events, everyone votes and the highest rated is published in the paper)

3rd Sheet- this my top secret website info put your top secret info there instead.

Side note: Keeping these passwords in one place saves time. I don’t have to pull up my email, look through papers, and have my password resent to me because I forgot it. You know you’ve done it too…

3)      Replace my info with yours. Furthermore, you can have a different sheet for each client. At work I have 20 different clients at once, all with different Twitter, Blogger, Facebook and a ton more accounts. Each sheet can be labeled with client names and your username and passwords.

Remember to save my workbook to your Googledocs and edit anywhere.

Ok, so you don’t like my Excel Workbook, try these…

Virtual post-its to organize your desktop icons. This is a great idea, and it’s really fun and motivational. Upon contact, Lori will send you the file and you can customize your own for FREE. Check it out here.

Tweet Deck– Many websites suggest software to bulk manage your accounts. For example, Tweet Deck, will allow you to post a status to all your major accounts (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Foursquare). This is great for managing 20 different Twitter accounts, but I don’t suggest posting the same content on each medium.

iGoogle– One of the best tools I’ve found is igoogle and it’s FREE. Plus you don’t have to come up with another username and password, it’s just your gmail. I can look at my blogger, gmail, RSS feed, Twitter, Facebook and many other widgets I haven’t loaded yet.

I’ll help you swim to the surface of social media before you get bitten by defeat. To find out more about the author, Megan click here!

Is Justin Bieber The King of Social Media?

There are millions of statistics about the entertainment industry and social media, but when the two cross over, amazing things can happen.

Take Justin Bieber for an example. He’s probably one of the most widely known young pop music stars on the planet, right? Justin and his business entourage have done a lot of good things to grow his career, but social media may have played the biggest role. Justin knows that its his young female fans that have helped him get where he is today. Without them tweeting, liking, posting, instagraming and commenting on a daily basis, he might not have as big a career. Let’s take a look at Justin Bieber’s social media numbers and how that compares to other top celebs.

 

Justin’s Twitter Followers: over 41,800,000

Justin’s Facebook Likes: over 55,700,000

Justin’s YouTube Subscribers: over 5, 200,000

According to SocialBakers.com stats, Justin’s top 3 distribution of Facebook fans comes from United States at 15.4%, Indonesia at 11% and India at 11%.

Justin has been on  Twitter since 2009. Over the past four years, has sent out over 22,000 tweets. That averages out to over 400 tweets per month or more tan 14 tweets per day.  Consistency has certainly paid off with an astounding Twitter fanbase of more than 41 million followers. That number put him ahead of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga by more than 2.5 million followers. He gains more 1.4 million new Twitter followers every month. These numbers put Justin at the top of the heap making him the King of  Twitter celebs!

Here’s the Top 5 Twitter Celebrities according to SocialBakers.com

1. Justin Bieber- 41,833,000+

2. Katy Perry- 39,296,000+

3. Lady Gaga- 39,128,000+

4. Taylor Swift- 30,787,000+

5. Rihanna- 30,551,000+

 

However, Justin is lacking the numbers on Facebook to make him number one. Without much of a surprise, Rihanna has secured her spot as the Queen of Facebook Likes.

The Top 6 Facebook Celebrities according to SocialBakers.com

1. Rihanna- 73, 926,000+

2. Eminem- 73, 137,000+

3. Shakira- 66,797,000+

4. Michael Jackson- 61,203,000+

5. Lady Gaga- 58,274,000+

6. Justin Bieber- 55,717,00+

Do you think the order of these celebrity likes will continue or will someone else be moving up the charts?

What do you think will happen?
