Report: Australians on Facebook 'like' TV and retail

It seems Australians are in love with giant bananas, television, food and shopping when it comes to Facebook, with the Bananas in Pyjamas Facebook page reigning in an impressive 2,032,296 fans during February 2013.

This number is almost double that of the second favourite Australian Facebook Page, Bubble O’Bill Ice Creams, which showed off a fan base of 1,272,089. Pringles Australia was just slightly behind with 1,259,733 fans, according to the latest Australian Facebook Performance report.

20% of consumers think hashtags are mainly useful for researching products

One in five (20%) consumers believe that hashtags are primarily useful for finding information on brands and products, though the most common use is for identifying trends (30%).

The findings come from a RadiumOne survey into consumer attitudes towards hashtags, which also revealed that out of the 58% of respondents that said they use hashtags, more than two thirds (70%) said they use them on a mobile device.

Unfortunately this question is slightly flawed as it appears that respondents were forced to answer either desktop or mobile, as if it’s impossible for a person to use hashtags on both devices, but it does at least indicate that people use them more frequently on their mobile.

Unsurprisingly, the report found that consumers would be more willing to use product-related hashtags if they were rewarded with discounts.

Today, many of the leading experts on search and social gather to share content and insight at the Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference (RIMC).

Coca-Cola: the 's' in social media doesn't stand for 'sales'

Coca-Cola, one of the most iconic consumer brands in the world, is not surprisingly one of the most popular and active brands on social media. In fact, with more than 62m 'likes' on Facebook, it's the most popular brand on the world's largest social network.

But in looking at the online chatter that takes place on social networks, Coca-Cola has come to a startling conclusion: there's essentially no impact on sales.

Five of the top social fails of 2013 so far

In 2012 some of the world’s biggest brands treated us to some truly spectacular blunders on social media.

My personal favourite was KitchenAid’s attack on President Obama’s dead grandmother, though the Swedish Tourist Board also deserves an honourable mention for its potty-mouthed, anti-Semitic tweets.

Thankfully brands haven’t learned from other’s mistakes so the social fails have continued apace in 2013.

Obviously it’s wrong to make fun of people’s mistakes and revel in their failures, but it’s also important to document social fails as a warning to others (sort of)...

Why has the financial services sector been slow to adopt social?

For many organisations, social represents one of the most drastic changes in communications since the advent of email.

Savvy businesses now effectively use the power of social to interact with their customer bases, prospect for new business, deliver services and obtain customer and market insights.

Indeed, this shift in communication has led many large enterprises to employ teams of social experts, tasked with monitoring the social airwaves at all hours and in multiple languages.

Eight ways to adapt your content marketing strategy to mobile

Mobile is changing our behaviour. And the message from a recent mobile marketing event, hosted by ORM London was, adapt to this change or be left behind.

The headline figures: who owns a smartphone (currently 54% of the UK), tablet (21% of the UK) and what they do on these devices (28% surf the net) changes from week to week. The latest in this rapid stream of stats is that more smartphone devices are being activated everyday worldwide than babies being born.

Mobile usage is big and it’s set to be even bigger. Twitter's latest report highlights how smartphone and tablet users are the most engaged consumers. Mobile users are 96% more likely to follow 11 or more brands and 58% more likely to recall seeing an ad on Twitter.

Google even predicts in three years mobile will overtake desktop as the most common way to go online – making mobile marketing more important.

Do brands need to care about Vine?

It launched, like no other social network before it, with instructions on how to create the perfect steak tartare and very quickly, became all about spam, pornography and regulation. 

Vine is one of the raft of new launches from Twitter. It’s novel, it’s got some spammy teething problems and it’s already had its first #fail

But, assuming that all of this can be fixed (and this is social behemoth Twitter we’re talking about, so that’s a fair assumption) what does Vine mean for brands?
