Social Media TV #2 – London Olympics, Facebook Offers, Lover.ly
Hi it’s Adam Franklin and welcome to the second episode of Social Media TV coming to you from Bondi where the sun is finally shining. Now we’re going to take a look at the stand out events in social media this week.
Now pay particular attention if you’re going to the Olympics, if you’re getting married or own a Facebook Business Page.
Now this week, Facebook has just released it’s Deals option (or more accurately its Offers feature). It’s designed for Facebook Business Page owners who want to offer specials or promotions to their fans. Now you might remember from last week that you’re not allowed to include specials, your contact details or calls to action on your Facebook Cover Image, now that’s what this new Offers section is for.
With less than 100 days to go until the London Olympics, it’s being hyped as the social Olympic Games yet the social media guidelines are anything but. It seems to me as though athletes won’t be allowed to be in photographs with products unless they are endorsed by the Olympic Committee. And even more staggeringly athletes won’t be allowed to share photographs or share videos from inside the Olympic Village. I’d love to know what you think about this because to me it seems like sponsorship going way too far.
Now if you love weddings and you love Pinterest, you’re in for a real treat with the new social media platform Lover.ly. It’s designed for wedding planners and it allows to you to discover and save all your wedding ideas in one easy place. You can search by colour, category or what’s popular and save it all in your Lover.ly account.
Now that’s a wrap for social media TV for this week. I’m Adam Franklin, on twitter I’m @Franklin_Adam and if you’ve got a marketing manager or a boss who you’d like to share this with, please feel free to do so and I’ll see you next week.
