The Career Intelligence™ Authority

Social media is no longer just a hob­by – it’s an oppor­tu­ni­ty for busi­ness­es to estab­lish mean­ing­ful rela­tion­ships with cus­tomers and clients. Com­pa­nies need mar­ket­ing-mind­ed indi­vid­u­als to fill social media mar­ket­ing jobs and use their online exper­tise to build the brand. The explo­sion of web­sites like Face­book, Twit­ter, Tum­blr and Pin­ter­est has giv­en busi­ness­es more ways than ever to pro­mote prod­ucts, start con­ver­sa­tions, and mon­i­tor brand rep­u­ta­tion. Knowl­edge is pow­er, and your flu­en­cy in social media could mean big bucks in social media man­ag­er jobs. If you know how to take data from plat­forms and ana­lyze its mean­ing for a brand or a busi­ness then you could be very valu­able in today’s media job mar­ket. Social media jobs focus on deliv­er­ing valu­able insights about cus­tomer engage­ment and expe­ri­ence. A great social media man­ag­er cre­ates a whole new way to expe­ri­ence a prod­uct or brand. The posi­tion takes a peo­ple-per­son with great com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and com­put­er flu­en­cy. New media chan­nels are pop­ping up all the time, and the vic­to­ry goes to those who lever­age these new chan­nels into their over­all mar­ket­ing strat­e­gy. Are you a social media pro?

With spe­cial­ties like Media Inte­gra­tion, Social Engage­ment, Social Out­reach, and Media Mar­ket­ing, you can find a social media job that enhances and builds your skills.

Finally, Foursquare Social Media star unveils its radically revamped new app

Finally, Foursquare unveils its radically revamped new app

After split­ting its busi­ness and user expe­ri­ence in two ear­li­er this year, Foursquare social media star has revealed its rad­i­cal­ly redesigned new app. Split­ting in two Social media man­agers who’ve been fol­low­ing the NY startup’s meta­mor­pho­sis this year will know that it launched Swarm back in May: this is now the home of Foursquare’s check in and it lets you find which of your bud­dies are near­by so you can link up for a Star­bucks, or what­ev­er else takes your mutu­al fan­cies. Now comes Foursquare 8.0, which has final­ly come out of pur­dah (it’ll be avail­able with­in the next few weeks). Our atten­tive social media man­ag­er will instant­ly spot that the company’s trade­mark green has gone, to be replaced with water­mel­on pink. And that rather cud­dly, bounc­ing ball-type logo has also been retired in favor of a strik­ing flag icon in the shape of the let­ter “F”. CEO Den­nis Crow­ley told The Verge jour­nal­ist Ellis Ham­burg­er that the new redesign brings to life the app he always want­ed to build. The deci­sion to split the com­pa­ny and place the check-in func­tion with swarm, he con­ced­ed, gen­er­at­ed con­tro­ver­sy and dis­sent from some. But user feed­back has been pre­dom­i­nant­ly pos­i­tive, Crow­ley main­tains,…

Image-sharing startup Imgur improves image discovery with new features

Imgur, the pop­u­lar image-shar­ing site, is mak­ing it eas­i­er for users to find the pic­tures they’re inter­est­ed in with some new fea­tures. Find­ing what inter­ests you… Social media man­agers and com­mu­ni­ty man­agers who pre­side over bur­geon­ing com­mu­ni­ties will be famil­iar with the dif­fi­cul­ty users can face when a social net­work real­ly takes off: the sheer quan­ti­ty of con­tent post­ed makes it very dif­fi­cult for them to find what they’re inter­est­ed in. With 1.5 mil­lion images being uploaded with each pass­ing day, Imgur has decid­ed it needs to do more to live up to its rep­u­ta­tion as “The Sim­ple Image Shar­er.” Prin­ci­pal among the new sift­ing fea­tures (which have been test­ed with sev­er­al thou­sand Ing­mur users) is the intro­duc­tion of tags: peo­ple can now tag indi­vid­ual pic­tures which users can then down­vote or upvote. It’s also pos­si­ble for Imgur vis­i­tors to cre­ate cus­tom gal­leries using sev­er­al dif­fer­ent tags, fil­ter­ing out the ones they’re not inter­est­ed in, mak­ing search­ing the site a good deal more effi­cient. The startup’s CEO and founder, Alan Schaaf, isn’t antic­i­pat­ing that the tags will be bor­ing­ly straight­for­ward cat­e­go­ry labels. Instead, he hopes they’ll most­ly be clever or wit­ty with­out veer­ing way off top­ic (and with­out breach­ing the…

Tinder’s new NY-based rival Hinge nets big new investment

Social discovery/matchmaking net­work Hinge has bagged a hand­some $4.5 mil­lion in new invest­ment, despite appar­ent­ly being a clone of Tin­der. Struc­tured data not end­less swip­ing The more dis­cern­ing social media man­agers who read this head­line will, of course, already be on the look­out for dis­tin­guish­ing fea­tures that make this New York start­up dis­tinct from its more estab­lished rival. And if those same social media man­agers exper­i­ment with both match­mak­ing apps they’ll quick­ly find it. Instead of swip­ing through seem­ing­ly lim­it­less queues of prospec­tive mates as in Tin­der, Hinge uses struc­tured data clues to cre­ate dai­ly “romance graphs.” It’s not as blood­less and math­e­mat­i­cal as it sounds: Hinge effec­tive­ly gives its users a dai­ly set of tai­lored match­es based on para­me­ters like a user’s pro­fes­sion, inter­ests, edu­ca­tion his­to­ry and pre­vi­ous roman­tic “likes” from the past. And it’s cer­tain­ly gain­ing a good­ly amount of trac­tion, with its Android and iOS user­base up 300 per­cent this year across the nine cities it oper­ates in: NYC, Atlanta, Boston, Chica­go, Dal­las, LA and Wash­ing­ton, DC (the com­pa­ny relo­cat­ed from the lat­ter to NYC last year). A big door opens OK, so it’s still a lot small­er than Tin­der, which man­ages 850 mil­lion swipes and 10…

Social video journalism moves forward with new NowThisNews acquisition

Video jour­nal­ism has tak­en a sig­nif­i­cant step toward social and mobile plat­forms fol­low­ing the acqui­si­tion of Clip­ta­mat­ic by NowThis­News. Social media man­agers who haven’t yet heard of NowThis­News might like to lis­ten up: head­quar­tered in New York, the start­up isn’t yet two years old (its birth­day comes on the 1st Sep­tem­ber) but it’s been mak­ing sol­id progress in that time in rein­vent­ing dig­i­tal video jour­nal­ism for the social and media age. And it’s just acquired Clip­ta­mat­ic, a plat­form that sim­i­lar­ly helps top-qual­i­­ty con­tent own­ers dis­sem­i­nate video in real-time to social media. Sim­pli­fy­ing video dis­tri­b­u­tion Cliptamatic’s social feed can also be dropped into con­tent own­ers’ mobile apps and web­sites, enabling tal­ent such as ath­letes, actors and news anchors as well as fans to use those videos in their social activ­i­ties. The can­ny social media man­ag­er will quick­ly spot that this inter­sec­tion of social and mobile video close­ly resem­bles that of NowThis­News, whose pres­i­dent, Sean Mills, said: “We’ve always felt that the com­pa­ny that’s going to win in that space is going to have DNA that’s not just a con­tent com­pa­ny, and not just a tech com­pa­ny, but both.” Com­ment­ing on the acqui­si­tion of Clip­ta­mat­ic, he explained that its tech­nol­o­gy plat­form –…

Indian e‑traders recognizing the benefits of Twitter

Com­pa­nies in India that main­ly trade via the Inter­net are wak­ing up to the ben­e­fits of engag­ing with users on the social media site, Twit­ter. The 140-char­ac­ter lim­it that each tweet impos­es seems to be enough to per­suade con­sumers to buy. For exam­ple, one of India’s biggest e‑tailers, Flip­kart, used Twit­ter to increase sales of Father’s Day presents. They post­ed an image of a young boy using a land­line tele­phone to call his father and ask for sta­tionery mate­ri­als. The image was titled ‘The orig­i­nal on-line shop­ping’, and seemed to imme­di­ate­ly res­onate with the company’s 135,000 users. Sell­ing social Senior vice pres­i­dent of mar­ket­ing at Flip­kart, Ravi Vora, said: “Twit­ter plays a 360 degree role for us. We work on cre­at­ing a des­ti­na­tion where our cus­tomers can have fun, with wit­ty replies and engag­ing con­tests, instead of using it just as a sales plat­form.” Their fel­low e‑tailers, includ­ing Myn­tra, Snapdeal and Jabong, also use Twit­ter to engage with their cus­tomer base, attempt to influ­ence and pro­vide spe­cial­ly tar­get­ed offers. A brand-mar­ket­ing founder and e‑commerce ana­lyst stat­ed that Twit­ter pro­vid­ed access to peo­ple these com­pa­nies would oth­er­wise not be able to reach, and that it not only encour­aged engage­ment, but was…
