Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate Social Media is Not Your Friend, and Dark Social Media Is

    For a long time now, we've all been told, and have told each other, that corporate social media is the way to build businesses, audiences and brands. What if this is about as true as the old saw about real estate prices only going up? What is “dark social media” and how is it different from Twitter, Facebook and the rest.

    Top 10 Reasons Why Corporate Social Media is Not Your Friend, and Dark Social Media Is

    by BAR managing editor Bruce A. Dixon

    It's new, it's now, it's cool, learn how... everybody's on it, everybody's doing it. For some time now, we've been told you cannot build a business, find old friends or organize much of anything without the indispensable aid of corporate social media, especially Facebook and Twitter. But what if this is about as true as other stuff the supposedly wise and informed told us in recent years, like that real estate prices could be counted on to always go up?

    Human societies are based on lots of horizontal communication. What if corporate social media is little more than a gigantic scam to extract revenue from the otherwise ordinary communication the internet permits between groups and individuals, between people and businesses, and among communities of interest. What if corporate social media ultimately aims not to open up but to throttle and restrict those conversations to make them artificially scarce and valuable commodities. What if corporate social media's business model is to thrive on content its proprietors don't create, and to place itself between that content and prospective audiences, even to substitute itself for the web sites, email lists and media offerings of content creators?

    With a billion users, Facebook is far and away the largest player in the world of corporate social media, so all these criticisms apply to Facebook. But many also apply to Twitter, Pinterest and their little brothers as well.

    Here are the top ten reasons why corporate social media is NOT your friend, and dark social media is.

    1. Facebook currently limits the number of your “friends” who can see your posts to about 7 or 8%. What? You thought that “friends” list was yours? It's not. It's theirs. And think about it, if you had a thousand friends, and 25 of them, that's 2.5% posted 3 or 4 times a day, another 25 posted once a day, and a hundred posted once a week, that would be at least 150 daily posts for you to comb through, leaving little room for Facebook to insert ads and promoted content which customers have paid for into your news feed.

    2. Facebook will let you talk to the other 92 or 93% of your friends, but you have to pay for that privilege. You buy an ad, or you “promote” the post by paying Facebook. Essentially Facebook is “broken on purposeso it can extract payment from you to do what you imagined it would do anyway, keep you in touch with your friends. You can get around this to a very limited extent by “tagging” each post with the names of individuals, or joining dozens of Facebook groups and individually sharing posts in the groups. But this is a time consuming process which has to be repeated with each post. If Black Agenda Report, with only a dozen or so new articles each week, we'd be on Facebook three or four hours each publication day.

    3. Facebook, along with Twitter and other corporate social media platforms provide you no way whatsoever to contact or individually identify your Facebook “friends” outside its own walled garden. Again, those lists of Twitter followers, and Facebook friends aren't really yours at all.

    4. Facebook limits the “organic reach” of your business or nonprofit organization page to about 3% of those who say they “like” you. Presumably those people “liking” your page imagined this would keep them up to date with what you're doing. Not so. Neither Facebook nor Twitter provides you any way to identify those “likes”, and Facebook won't allow you even to send a message to them. Let's do a thought experiment. Suppose you've got a business or a worthy cause, and a list of thousands of customers, prospects, clients, or past and potential volunteers and like minded donors. If I offer to take care of deliveries to that list, but won't let you see their names, their email addresses, or how many and which of them I actually deliver to, would that be OK with you? No? Now please tell me again why corporate social media which pretty much does that is essential to building your business, your brand, your cause.

    5. Facebook will gladly sell you advertising directed at the 97% of your “likes” who otherwise might never see your stuff. Actually, these people WILL see what you offer if they go out of their way to your Facebook page. But with the same amount of effort, they could have visited your web site independently of Facebook, couldn't they?

    6. Third party vendors are eager to sell you all the “Facebook likes,” “Facebook friends” and Twitter “followers” you're willing to pay for. They might be located in Egypt, Sri Lanka or Croatia, and never interact with your product or page again, but you can count them as “likes.” Twitter and Facebook do not endorse these parasitic vendors, but the mythology around corporate social media being so important to your business or organizational “presence” on the web keeps them in business as well.

    7. If someone hostile to your politics, your business or your person lodges a spurious complaint to Facebook, or Yahoo, Google or YouTube, say, that you're an anti-Semetic copyright-violating whistle blowing vegan child molester, what these providers generally do is simply cut your account off without notice. Their terms of service often relieve them of the bother of even sharing the exact nature of the complaint against you let alone investigating it, and explicitly state that “your” lists are really theirs. I know people who've lost thousands of business contacts and years of content in Yahoo and Google email accounts, lists and YouTube contents this way.

    8. Facebook, Twitter and other corporate social media platforms don't just track your every move while you're on Twitter or Pinterest or Facebook. If you close the browser tab without logging off or purging cookies, they usually continue to record and transmit all your internet activity home for data miners to crunch. Such data, both raw and refined are major revenue sources.

    9. While Facebook, Twitter and all the social media platforms rely on YOU and people like you for their compelling content, they deliberately aim to place themselves between you and your readers, customers, and clients, to substitute your Facebook presence for your own offerings elsewhere on the internet. Do you actually visit all the articles you pause over in your Twitter feed? Nobody else does either. We habitually comb through 140 character snippets and hundred word Facebook brain farts while seldom leaving the corporate social media plantation, and imagine we've actually visited those web sites, those sources. There are already folks whose ONLY daily internet experience is Facebook, and books like “The Shallows” explain how our internet reading makes us practically unable to read book length arguments, reluctant to follow any single line of inquiry for more than a minute or three.

    10. Dark social media is “dark” because it's social media untraceable by Big Data and corporate marketers. It's direct email sent from your own lists and your own listserves. Dark social media was around before Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter, and remains the proven way for individuals, causes and businesses to reach, retain and maintain contact with friends, customers, clients, and like minded souls. Using dark social media to expand the reach of your business or project, to engage audiences directly and without an intermediary is often a more fruitful way to spend scarce resources. Corporate media won't tell you this and neither will the “social media consultants,” sometimes because they don't believe fat meat is greasy, and other times because disinformed customers are more profitable.

    Remember all those real estate professionals and “wealth building experts” who told us home values would never go down? Some of them actually believed it that swill. Some others knew better, but were watching their own bottom line, not those of their customers or the public. This is not so different.

    Facebook does some really nice things, and many of us have and interacted (online at least) with a ton of interesting people. But it may be time for your business, your social movement or project or you as an individual to reconsider the effort and resources devoted to maintaining a presence on Facebook, Twitter and corporate social media platforms. If you've already got two or three thousand Facebook friends or tens of thousands of “likes” that aren't fakes a bit of continued effort on Facebook and Twitter is probably required.

    Originally released in 2006 chanel replica, the transfer for this two episode OVA series is presented in its original full frame aspect ratio. Angel's Feather feels like a throwback to some of the early digital productions from around gucci replica 2000 in how it plays with a lot of its scenes, which means it has a very fake and almost plastic like feel to it. The transfer captures this probably too well as it all feels replica wathces very unreal, which is admittedly a strange thing to say about an animated show. Colors are bright and bold while remaining generally solid and strong. There is some mosquito noise visible in the backgrounds at times and a few areas of very rolex replica noticeable banding but in general it's a decent look transfer without any serious issues to it.

    Corporate Events In Social Media

    Social media sites are made to share the latest news, updates images and events in it that would be visible to everyone so that anyone can access the memorable events. Mostly in organisations people like to use such type of service that helps them to make the corporate events updated with every employee. Several types of social media resources are there that helps you to share your creativity like facebook, twitter and you can also make your own page in order to share any view.

     

    I would add a few things.

    I would add a few things. 2014 is becoming a great time for social video. Short, shared online video is riding the waves of popularity among young people and so many brands use it as a great marketing tool. We observe companies having engaged in creating inspiring social videos for sharing. And one more, there has been a key shift in how social media is treated within the business. It is no longer just a marketing tactic, social media is being more and more acknowledged for its income-generating capacity. It looks that an increasing number of businesses are beginning to link their social efforts to revenue. I'm the owner of a new education website eduexpress.co.uk.

    Nice post Bruce..I have been branding since last 5 years in Face book and othe social media websites .I have hired  agence social media for promoting my brand on social website for that they have created a Fan page ,Community and because  of that my sales  have been boosted to a greater extent .

    Facebook Contact

    Some people have their email addresses on their Facebook profiles and you can contact them outside of Facebook that way.

    The term "dark social media" is confusing

    I've just discovered your web site, thanks to a reference on Counterpunch and not through Facebook or Twitter!

    Your piece confirms what I've long suspected, particularly concerning Facebook. Either the user spends most of her time jiggling with these services - for results that in any case aren't necessarily justified and can't easily be measured - or she pays them money to get more exposure, but only on their terms. Either way, the time/money expended would be much better used elsewhere.

    One point puzzles me however: why do you choose to refer to the internet outside the walled gardens of the corporate social empires as "dark social media"?

    In fact, what you're referring to is the good ol' internet as it was before Facebook and Co. even started, and before advertising infiltrated almost all of its nooks and crannies.

    It's possible that you may like to place a positive value on "darkness", which would be understandable; I haven't spent enough time on your site to know that.

    Nevertheless, the term "dark social media" creates the impression that the corporate walled gardens have already won the battle, and that the open internet that most of us have known for around two decades now only exists in their shadow. I find that confusing.

    Best wishes, David Sharp

    Dark social media is "dark" because...

    it cannot natively be tracked by the commercial data miners like Facebook, Yahoo and Google.  Pretty sure that's in the article, my friend.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the education. I will think about the value of my Twitter account after reading your article. In addition I was not aware of the terminology "dark social media", but it obviously was popular before this other stuff. I am relieved to know I can count on great information from you. Once again, much appreciated.

    Social Media

    This is a good piece, Bruce.  I've long considered leaving Facebook.  I left Twitter long ago when someone hacked my account.
