When it comes to social media, the feedback loop is broken because users are not customers

Keywords: Yahoo News , MSN , Default Partners

Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Snap‘s Snapchat, Google — at the end of the day, they are not here to serve you and me. They can only survive if they serve their customers (the advertisers) first. The best way to serve those customers is clear: Get users addicted to the screen. Remember: If something is free, you are the product.

In my opinion, all kids and teenagers should grow up without [social media] but it’s impossible to control. At least make sure you set time for yourself without any distraction, ban your phone when you eat and when you’re spending time with someone in real life for example (even if it happens less often nowadays).

Though President Trump has been exceptionally vocal about the negative effects of fake news, even going as far as to publicly accuse several news outlets of participating in the activity, there are many who believe his campaign is using fake news accounts as a tactic to get him ahead in the election race. For example, several prominent news outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times have claimed that President Trump’s campaign is built on disinformation.

Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should live their lives, but none about their own

This feels for me like one of the huge issues around social media. People use social media platforms to lecture others on the right way to be. The right thoughts, beliefs, routines, habits, political affiliations, diet, way to be in relationship, way to support their cause… the list is endless. And if you dare disagree, you are at best un-liked and at worst, personally attacked.

Your audience wants to know that you know who they are, you’ve heard their issues, and you can help them

Keywords: Social Media , Marketing , Online Marketing , Personal Branding , Branding

People flock to someone who understands and can help them. When you study influencers or those with exceptional standing in their industry, that is their followers’ impression. He or she offers insight or provides a service that others need and use. If you are not sure if you are doing an excellent job at this, look for a third party to objectively look at your social media and anything else you put out to the public. Sometimes we need another set of eyes on what we do. Getting others’ opinions is not a sign of weakness; it is an example of strength and perseverance as you craft your best possible message to the masses.
