A Few Links for Wednesday

Social Media Around the World – A report by Insites Consulting on global social media usage, with lots and lots of interesting facts. Definitely worth a look.

Social Media Marketing GPS – A new ebook by Toby Bloomberg on social media marketing, involving interviews with leading figures in the field. What’s unique about this book is that all of the interviews were carried out on Twitter. I’ve not had much of a chance to flick through it yet, so I’m going to hold off judgment for the moment. It’s certainly an interesting and creative concept, but since Twitter postings can tend towards the gnomic, I’m curious as to how well it well hold together over the course of the book, or whether the enforced brevity will become wearing after a while. In any case, it’s certainly an interesting concept, and it’s worth having a look for that reason alone.

Social is Conversation – An article on iPlatform’s new Conversocial program, which is designed to help companies manage and track data across multiple social media platforms, which looks like an interesting solution to one of the key problems in social media – how do you track and compare information from such disparate sources?

The Latest Social Media Privacy Issue – Apparently, advertisers can tell full identities from those who click on ads on social media sites, which opens up the possibility of being able to scrub profiles for all kinds of personal details. Keep an eye on your privacy controls, people!
