Career Spot: Political Social Media Strategist In recent years, social media has emerged to play a pivotal role in transforming the ways in which people engage in politics, and how politics itself operates as a function in society. Considering the digital platform it depends on, social media has given political parties and politicians the chance to establish direct connections with an almost limitless audience at a much lesser cost than old-school door-knocking techniques.

They also wrote, however, about chronically low wages (reporters based in Washington DC, for example, can expect a measly salary of $30,000 a year), salary discrepancies, a lack... Read More >

2019-05-29 by Ronn Torossian

How Social Media Can Help Brands Improve Customer Service Somehow, somewhere along the line, consumer behavior shifted away from calling a business on the phone to simply pulling up their website or social media on their mobile device. Now, businesses can have a strong presence in a customer’s mind without that person even setting foot outside of their home. This omnipresence can be beneficial, particularly when it comes to customer service. Think of it this way: previously (and, for some businesses, still), a customer had to dial a toll-free number and navigate a tricky series of automated menu options with... Read More >

2019-04-22 by Ronn Torossian

Getting the Most Out of Instagram Hashtags Hashtags have carved an interesting path in the world of social media: starting off on Twitter, they never quite took off on Facebook, and have instead become the backbone of Instagram marketing. Just the mere adding of # symbol to your post can turn any word or phrase into a clickable, followable topic, with the entire Instagram world at your fingertips. After users click on a hashtag, they are taken to all the public posts associated with that hashtag, and are even given the option of following hashtags that interest them. By doing... Read More >

Zuckerberg has become known in recent months for his substantive blog posts, but was uncharacteristically quiet about the strategy behind these moves. Now, the method behind... Read More >

Facebook’s Fall and what it means for your business The Federal Trade Commission is negotiating a multi-billion-dollar penalty for Facebook’s violations of its consent agreement. In the UK, Parliament physically compelled the turnover of secret Facebook documents that show an astonishing disregard for user privacy- and a knowing, intentional effort to violate laws on the use of personal information. The UK has requested that the FTC assist in its investigation. In Europe, Facebook is already under investigation for violations of the GDPR. Those investigations are coming along well. Facebook is already facing fines of €1.6 billion and has been fined... Read More >
