Social Media Management is the business related function of managing multiple social media channels for the purposes of marketing communication, reputation protection, and customer acquisition.

The practice utilizes the internet technology of social media to talk directly to individual customers and create a level of brand involvement and loyalty not possible with traditional media strategies.

It reaches beyond marketing and into functions such as sales, human resources, and project management.

Social Media Management was not formerly introduced in the workplace until late 2007, as social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter grew to extremely large user counts.

It’s importance became more universally recognized for its effectiveness during the 2008 presidential election in which Barack Obama was able to mobilize a massive proportion of young population using a far reaching social media campaign.

Twitter and Facebook were used to mobilize young voters and several debates were held using questions posed in the form of YouTube videos

    Wow what an exhaustive list. Which ones do you personally use?

    • Berrie Pelser 25 mei 2012 om 07:55

      Hootsuite, Tweetdeck and Social Oomph

    • Sandor Benko 25 mei 2012 om 08:00

      I see, thanks. I use Hootsuite only – what's the benefit of adding Tweetdeck to the mix? I thought the functions largely overlap.

    • Berrie Pelser 25 mei 2012 om 09:00

    Undeniably believe that that you said. Your favourite justification appeared to be at the net the simplest factor to consider of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people think about issues that they just do not recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest and also defined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
