What’s Your Social Style Series: Featuring Tamar Weinberg
Monique Neeley, February 23, 2012

Despite fans or followers, every complaint is valid. But trends show that those with fewer followers want to be heard the loudest, yet don’t care to participate in the conversation.

uberlife Real Champions Series: Hanging Out With Tamar Weinberg
uberlife, February 10, 2012

I was a VERY early adopter. It was the early 90s and my first online interaction ever was when I was in 6th grade in a chat room. Here I was at 6am, 12 year old me and two other men.

We started talking and I remember the guys pretty clearly: one was 50 (“50?,” I said. “That’s so old!”) and the other was in his mid 20s. Amazingly, that twenty-something had actually attended the same school as me and had the same teachers as me.

I knew from that point on that things were going to be different, and I was living in a social media world since before it even had a name. I had a few nicknames in school as a result of my early adoption (nobody at that time understood) but I knew there was going to be something amazing about to happen.

24 SEO Experts Discuss Links vs. Tweets
Point Blank SEO, January 19, 2012

I think that search engines will pay more attention to social signals, but not just the name of the user who shared the content. After all, you could argue that you could create 500 Twitter accounts, tweet out a link, and get #1 rankings. However, just like a link needs to be trusted, so too does the sharer’s account.

The biggest challenge is that there’s no direct way to measure ROI. But you can absolutely see if you’ve made waves. You can calculate reach (the length that the message travels), frequency and traffic (how often someone visits the page you’re bringing attention to), influence (the depth of a conversation, especially as it refers to positive or negative sentiment), conversions and transactions (will they buy?), and sustainability (will they last beyond the campaign?).
