CyberAlert: Nobody Monitors and Measures the Media Better
left edge left margin February 2012: Issue 4
spacer
This week's issue of Media Monitoring News covers a wide cross-section of topics on public relations, marketing and social media. The recommended lead article examines the change in attitude about government surveillance of social media — a topic that will undoubtedly become important for businesses during 2012. A New York Times Magazine article examines utilization of "Big Data" in marketing and corporate communications. Media measurement is the subject of three different articles and we recommend two articles to improve writing skills. And, de rigueur for this week, we have a Jeremy Lin article focusing on his impact on social media and business outcomes.

Lawmakers to Homeland Security: Social Media Monitoring Threatens Free Speech

Mashable
spacer
How times have changed! After 9/11, government security agencies did most anything they wanted to protect against terrorism including incarcerating suspects without due process. Now, as explained in Lawmakers to Homeland Security: Social Media Monitoring Threatens Free Speech, legislators balk at even commonplace approaches to identifying potential terrorist threats as threats to civil liberties. The question — and one that corporations must also answer — is where do you draw the line. Prediction: the first corporation caught "friending" a critic in order to monitor Facebook comments will face a serious outcry over privacy issues.

Six Key Metrics for Managing Global-Local Communications

Sinicom (Angela Sinickas)

Angela Sinickas, always good for a unique twist on PR analytics, focuses on measurement as a method to develop communications strategy in Six Key Metrics for Managing Global-Local Communications — and, as is usually the case, offers some out-of-the-box approaches using measurement to achieve more effective media placement.

Content Marketing Tactics Now Critical to All Businesses [Infographic]

Business 2 Community
spacer
Nowadays, it's called content marketing — and it's HOT! Back in the day, it was called public relations — and it was kind of, well, ignored. This infographic entitled Content Marketing Tactics Now Critical to All Businesses examines the extent and value of content marketing (aka: public relations) and its effectiveness. Thought: Some PR pros might consider positioning themselves as "content marketing experts."

The Ultimate Guide to Writing Incredible Headlines

The Content Strategist spacer
The Ultimate Guide to Writing Incredible Headlines delivers on its promise, providing a comprehensive list of approaches to developing attention-grabbing headlines for newsletters, blogs and most any other form of communication. The article includes links to other articles on headline writing. Another thoughtful article on good writing for marketing and PR, appearing in Kissmetrics, is The 4 Keys to Writing Persuasive Copy without Hype, BS, or Other Icky Gimmicks on writing clear, shiny copy that affords prospects the perfect view of whatever it is you're selling.

How Companies Learn Your Secrets

New York Times Magazine spacer
"Big data" is among the hottest topics in marketing. How Companies Learn Your Secrets is the typical in-depth analysis of lead articles in the New York Times Magazine — maybe telling you more than you want or need to know about the subject, but containing a fistful of substantive insights. This is a must-read article for marketing and PR pros who want to better understand the emerging "big data" trend.

Is Social the New News?

SlideShare spacer
Social media, especially Twitter, now often announce news events ahead of traditional media — because social media have people on scene witnessing the events. In a set of self-explanatory slides entitled Is Social the New News? for a presentation to the New England Newspaper & Press Association Winter Conference, Debra Askanase analyzes how crowd sourcing in social media is affecting traditional newspapers, journalism and the news cycle. Question: how is social media affecting corporate news distribution?

So Where Did AVEs Come From Anyway?

Institute for Public Relations spacer
Ad Value Equivalence (AVE) as a measure of public relations effectiveness has persisted for decades, but has no academic support according to Professor Tom Watson of Bounemouth University. So Where Did AVEs Come From Anyway? recounts the evolution of AVEs from first mention right to the current condemnations by most every PR association.

4 Unique Approaches for Measuring Social Media

ClickZ spacer
How do you measure how the effort put into social media is paying off? Just measuring volume certainly is not the answer. 4 Unique Approaches for Measuring Social Media suggests some controversial media measurement approaches including "value of a customer" and "paid value of traffic" (which sounds suspiciously like AVE).

Beth Kanter spacer

Beth Kanter illustrates How to Use Facebook Metrics to Give Your Audience the Content They Want Most with approaches that apply to other social media as well.

Don't Be a Pest with "This Social Media Stuff"

Business 2 Community spacer

Jeremy Lin and the Power of Social Media

Forbes spacer
How could any newsletter having to do with media not have a Jeremy Lin article this week? Jeremy Lin and the Power of Social Media contends that "no athlete has ever illustrated the power of social media so quickly and as much as New York Knicks guard Jeremy Lin." Hmmmmm. Yes, pro basketball phenom Lin caught fire on social media, but he also dominated the sports pages of traditional media. It's enlightening to see how one player can affect business outcomes, but attributing the effect to social media seems an overreach.
