  • Unwritten rules of social media (Part 1)

    in Internet

    Back when social media is still on its early stage, users -- marketers included -- are operating largely based on intuition and common sense. But as the online population grew exponentially, so did the need for more definite rules, if only to maintain some semblance of order. The thing is, the so-called "rules" are ever-changing so it makes sense that they are mostly unwritten.
    But if that's the case, then what are we to do as marketers who are trying to maximize the social media platforms to connect to our target market? We adapt.
    And since we at LGO are feeling extra generous, we thought we'd with you what we've learned so far. After much research, observation and a bit of trial and error, we have come up with five rules that are generally applicable across different social media platforms (for now):
    Update daily. As much as possible, post several times within the day. However, this takes a lot of sensible discretion for you do not want to flood anyone's timeline (a sure fire way to get unfollowed). A good strategy would be to allow for an interval of a couple of hours before you post another update.
     
    Be responsive. When users comment or engage you in a conversation, you'll be in their good graces if you can reply within an hour. Remember, these people are already used to "instant" stuff so they'll be expecting you to be online round the clock, ready to answer them.
    Don't be too hashtag-happy. Two hashtags in a tweet are okay but anything more than that borders on annoying. For one, it's an eyesore; for another, you'll hardly have space left for the message itself. Keep your hashtags at a maximum of three per post and you'll be fine. (Note: This rule does not seem to apply to Instagram where hashtags are being generously used in place of a proper caption.)

  • Information Security, Risk, and The Road Ahead

    in Technology

    The discipline of IT security is changing rapidly. With new threats such as Heartbleed and FREAK being uncovered every day and new attacks such as Anthem and Sony constantly in the headlines, enterprises are being forced from their old perimeter-oriented thinking and into a new world of incident response and risk-based decision making. To defend the organization’s data, security professionals must think differently.
    Join security and risk expert John Pironti and Dark Reading Editor-in-Chief Tim Wilson on Wed., Apr. 15 for a live online discussion of this sea-changing shift in security strategy and the many ways it is affecting IT and business. Pironti and Wilson, who have spent the last few months talking with security thought leaders while building the Information Security and Risk track for the upcoming Interop Las Vegas conference Apr. 27-May 2, will outline some of the new thinking posed by some of the industry’s leading speakers and experts. Listeners will also get some advice on where they can go – and who to follow on social media – in order to learn more about the latest trends and shifts in risk and security.

About Technology

We love technology. Without the Internets, how could we offer 35,000 new shows a month to listen to, playback and download? Technology is so pervasive, we treat our devices like trusty companions, carrying them around with us, and going through withdrawal when they're recharging or misplaced. We discipline our children by taking away electronic privileges. We check tech blogs and forums for PC and Mac rumors. And just when we've geeked out on the latest-and-greatest gadgets, our eyes widen at the glimpse of what will quickly usurp them. Can't make it to SXSW, CTIA, CES and other trade shows? Our hosts take you there. Unsure which operating systems, software or apps are worth your time and money? Get expert advice from bestselling authors, CTOs and leading technologists on product news, e-learning, cloud computing, cameras, home entertainment, camcorders, iPhones, Androids, BlackBerrys, PlayStation, Wii, tablets, iPods and everything keeping our lives in sync.
