KISSMIF:  Keep it Simple, Social Media is Fun.  Tips for Twitter, Instagram, Google Plus, and Facebook

Here we go with some more simple, easy to understand social media news!

Twitter now has group private messaging!

In the past couple of KISSMIF posts, I shared some tips about Twitter. Twitter has just announced that they now have their own “audience insights.”  Here is their statement of how they project audience insights can help advertisers on Twitter or even a Twitter user customize their tweets:

With audience insights, you can easily discover valuable insights about your followers and the people who have engaged with your organic tweets. You can also identify new, relevant audiences to target for an upcoming campaign.

In this post, they have a tutorial on exactly how to use the insights.
Social Media News about Instagram

Instagram is now bigger than Twitter, so I need to get busy on Instagram. It is my least-used social media.  It also has 22 times the engagement compared to Twitter and 15 times the engagement compared to Facebook.  Adults are even using Instagram more (not just teenagers).

Pew’s report states that 26 percent of online adults in the US used Instagram in 2014. That’s up from 17 percent in 2013 and 13 percent in 2012. By comparison, 23 percent of online adults in the US used Twitter in 2014.

Kim Garst from Boom Social has a good post showing how to use hashtags to help grow your followers on Instagram. Her post has a list of the top-used hashtags on Instagram and different tools you can use to find relevant hashtags.

Google+ Social media news

Google has now officially separated the photos away from Google+. They are letting everyone back up all their photos (if they wish) to Google Photos and you can now share the photos to other social medias. Pretty cool!

At its I/O 2015 developer conference today, Google launched Google Photos for Android, iOS, and the Web. The new service is completely separate from Google+, something Google users have been requesting for eons.
Google is declaring that Google Photos lets you backup and store “unlimited, high-quality photos and videos, for free.” All of Google’s various photo offerings had storage limits based on your Google account (Gmail, Google Drive, and Google+).

Social Media News about Facebook.

  • I have always wanted to be able to search for a specific Facebook post!  Sometimes I want to go back to a share day that I host and I forgot to copy the URL. Now I can search for it!  Social Media Examiner has a helpful video on Facebook HERE that shows you how to use it.

Basically, you just go click on the Publishing Tools tab of your Facebook page and then search for the post in the search window.

New search function on Facebook business pages.

  • I loved this infographic about how to get organic views on Facebook.
