How should I acquire more experience in Social Media?
by /u/pbeatles on September 15, 2019 at 12:04 am
I recently graduated a few months ago with a B.A. in Communication studies. During my time in undergrad, I didn't get to gain much experience using social media until my last two semesters of college, where I was a part of the social media startup class for my major. Through that class, I was in charge of managing the department's Twitter account, where I mostly posted about sports related content related to our school, career fairs/internship opportunities, and re-tweeted related content. For my internship, I was responsible for running my company's student org, where I largely utilized Instagram to build a following on campus. I would post quotes related to sports coaching, took pics of soccer practices, took pics at tabling events and live stories, posted links to my organization's internship opportunities, and used Canva to create posters to advertise for those events. It was through those experiences that I realized that I like managing Social media but I was lacking in terms of how to create content and the programs/tools I could use to edit. Now that I have graduated, I realize it is going to be difficult to get a job since I am lacking in that area but I want to teach myself how edit videos/pictures, programs that I can use to do that, or anything that can help me gain more experience and make me a stronger candidate for job applications. I want to create another account on Instagram showcasing events around the area I live, nature, sports. What online programs do you recommend for editing pictures/videos? What can I do to become more knowledgeable about the industry or any information on what it is like to work for an company as a social media manager? submitted by /u/pbeatles [link] [comments
New Algorithms in 2019
by /u/SmallBlueAlien on September 14, 2019 at 10:04 pm
I’ve read a lot about the somewhat illusive algorithm changes in social media platforms like youtube and instagram, but I’m not sure if I understand completely. It seems as though these established platforms are making it harder for new content creators to start which seems counterproductive for their companies. I know that they are also pushing people to buy ads because most of the impact seems to be on traffic to your accounts, but i have been unsuccessful with ads in the past (i could also be doing them wrong). Is it required to buy ads now in order to drive traffic and are they worth investing in? Is there something else I am not understanding about the new algorithms? submitted by /u/SmallBlueAlien [link] [comments

What are your top 3 "extras" for Freelancing
by /u/taylermeagiin on September 14, 2019 at 8:03 pm
Aside from scheduling platforms & GA (which I'm sure we all use), I was curious as to what "extra" programs SM professionals swear by for managing & organizing their clients/content. Things like competitor analysis platforms, social listening, inbound marketing, etc. I'm picking up freelance work & I've been successful at my 9-5 SM job working with only freemium Hootsuite & Photoshop but I'm wondering what's really worth looking into outside of that. There's so freaking many. submitted by /u/taylermeagiin [link] [comments
Should I make a new instagram account?
by /u/tornotto on September 14, 2019 at 8:00 pm
So in the past when I first started my IG, I used to just follow for follow and didnt really specifically target any kind of audience. Now I have a pretty good idea of my target audience but when I upload I get very little engagement. I have about 5k followes and lately have been averaging >20 likes&comments on any post. So I was thinking maybe I should just start a new one and target people correctly? Or should I just continue with my current account and change the way I'm marketing? submitted by /u/tornotto [link] [comments

My Client Wanted Me to Post for Suicide Awareness Day, Would you?
by /u/missLaKill on September 14, 2019 at 7:41 pm
One of my clients contacted me on Suicide Awareness Day and wanted me to post content for that afternoon. I flat out refused. I felt uncomfortable posting about such a sensitive topic when the company has no connection to mental health awareness. I asked her if it was a joke because I couldn't believe what I was hearing. I was wondering how you guys feel about posting for something like Suicide Awareness? I don't see the value in posting for awareness days in general. And my client's company has not contributed to the cause in any way. TL;DR My client wanted me to post something for Suicide Awareness day because it's a "great promotional opportunity." I said no. What's your take on posting for awareness days? submitted by /u/missLaKill [link] [comments
Weird Social Media Strategy
by /u/Lovelifepending on September 14, 2019 at 7:05 pm
So I'm a videographer and as result of my job I'm going to have use social media. Now let me put it out there from the get go I hate social media but due to the nature of my job it's now a necessary evil. One thing that always pisses me off on the rare times I use social media is the fake boring posts from people promoting there personal brand or business,so I'm coming with a strategy where I rant and rave like a grumpy old man about how I hate social media ,then in the same post promoting my content,to be ironic. I'll also be open about the fact that I dont really know how to use social media,and aim to post comedic posts around this. The goal of this is to stand out from the crowd,entertain people enough to gain more follower/likes etc and improve the profitability of my business. So my question is do you reckon this will work? submitted by /u/Lovelifepending [link] [comments
FB event isnt showing who goes and who is intrested
by /u/Engineer_engifar666 on September 14, 2019 at 3:24 pm
I can suddenly no longer view who is attending or interested in any public event, unless they are a fb friend. It will only show the number of people who responded, and looks like this: 60 people are going and i see only my friends who goes. Not everybody i know is my friend. Is there something I can do about it???? submitted by /u/Engineer_engifar666 [link] [comments
Scripts / programs for Facebook Marketplace ?
by /u/mrsnakers on September 14, 2019 at 2:02 pm
I can't find much of anything in google results. Basically, Facebook marketplace is chaotic as hell. There are so many flippers / resellers / scammers. I'd like better search tools and filters. I'd also like to be able to more easily / quickly block users. The phone version of Facebook Marketplace is much better. It has more info such as whether something is well priced, when it was posted, how many views it has, and you can set up alerts when new items are posted that match your filters. But I work from PC. And I can't actually do my job from the phone app, way too many items to appraise every day. I have a large budget to work with depending on the skill and thoroughness and longevity of a product someone could point me to or possibly create for me. submitted by /u/mrsnakers [link] [comments

Addressing the Insta story stalker
by /u/catchinguptoyou on September 14, 2019 at 7:50 am
I recently launched a business in cosmetics for women that has become an overnight success, but I’m scaling small and still in complete control of it; however, the sharks are roaming. I’ve noticed a few people watching my Instagram stories who do not fit my market. One is a famous Forbes listed entrepreneur. He’s not a follower, but this is the second insta story’s he’s watched in a week. I’m intrigued. What should I take from this? Is he assessing me? Trying to steal my idea? Making some passive move for me to reach out? Why would someone actively seek you out without following your page and look at your stories? submitted by /u/catchinguptoyou [link] [comments
How to add Reviews & Recommendations on my TV Show Page?
by /u/kaswardy on September 14, 2019 at 5:51 am
I have a TV show with 230k fans. I wanted to add a reviews & recommendations tab so that our fans can write reviews. I went to the Tabs section, but there is no option for reviews. I tried different templates, but none of them show the reviews tab. Is the review tab restricted for the type of page. I would think a TV Show page should automatically have a review tab as it makes a lot of sense. submitted by /u/kaswardy [link] [comments

Need Help with a Research Project
by /u/newyne on September 14, 2019 at 3:13 am
Hi, I'm a research assistant on a project tracking youth social media use. I need statistics on age demographics from Twitter and Tik Tok. Tik Tok seems like kind of a lost cause at this point; my advisor tried contacting the company and didn't really get anywhere with them, and now I'm having trouble getting in contact with Twitter, too. The only contact option I'm finding is the help contact, which isn't relevant to my purposes and flat-out tells me that they won't respond. Does anyone know how I could get in contact with them? Also, does anyone know any free way to look up how many times a hashtag has been used? Thanks for your help! submitted by /u/newyne [link] [comments

FB Posts or Event for reoccurring programs?
by /u/lunarlord on September 13, 2019 at 7:31 pm
Hi everyone, I work for a public library and we want to let people know about the programs we offer.

These programs typically run for months at a time. Example: Early Coding Club, it teaches kids grade 3-5 the basics of coding submitted by /u/lunarlord [link] [comments
