  9. John says:

    and what impact will it leave in the future? positive or negative?

    Yes, social media provides new marketing methods and all, but then again, most of the entertainment business’ revenue comes from advertisers. so, social media might be an ally and an enemy at the same time.

    and i dont believe selling DVD’s or songs help, as final customers tend to find ways of getting them for free. and making laws and regulations against it will hurt the relationship between the suppliers and these final customers.

    I have a job interview this week at an ad agency and one thing they asked was that I demonstrate my knowledge of social media and online media.

    I’m doing a school project on what business will be like in 2035 and I was thinking that since social media is a huge part of our lives already, it will probably be one of the main things we use in 2035. I was thinking that I’d use social media and technology to present the project, since there is no oral mark. Either that, or make a sort movie/video report. Any ideas or opinions on what I should do?

  48. x_blind_x_gamer_x says:

    Hey folks,

    I’ve been running several social accounts for the needs of my company. Frankly speaking, it is very time-consuming, especially tracking all the timelines, mentions etc. Our niche implies that our customers ask a lot of questions via social media.

    I use post scheduling on Facebook, but it is really annoying and sometimes is not working at all. I wonder if there is any solution, or tool, or service, or app that can help in using multiple accounts, read timelines, quickly answer the questions from customers.

    I think we can afford a paid version of the app if the price is reasonable.
    Please give some advice on personal usage of such tools. I’ve read some reviews but still it is not clear which app is good in everyday massive social activity.

    Thanks in advance.

  52. zaclo says:

    I am looking for some help on how an international consultancy firm that assists companies to set up business in a foreign country can use social media. Do you see social media having a benefit for them? What do you could possibly harm them? How can they go about maintain the very fine line between social interaction and professional interaction? The fact is that they deal with information, connections and other services of that nature instead of a consumer product. Thus I need some insight into strategies and platforms that could benefit them and how to maintain their audience interested.

    Thank you.

  53. Thomas A says:

    I have been trying to promote my site for sometime now and I seem to be going nowhere.

It is for a social media class so the posts need to somehow promote the company or interact with the followers. What are some things you guys would post if you were the social media director?

  58. Gage says:

    I’m very new to social media. Until now, I have tried to stay away from the likes of Facebook and Twiitter, mainly because I have a lot to deal with in my real life, and I don’t see a lot of benefits of always being on these social media sites to chat/follow/keep in touch with virtual relationships. But now that I’m planning to open my own small business, I might need to turn to the social media for marketing. Besides LinkedIn, do the other social media sites (Google+, FB, Twitter, etc) offer good, solid ways of getting people to learn about one’s business, or are they all mostly distractions?

    I’m planning to hire a marketing professional in about a year, once my business is profitable, but for now I want to do my own marketing. Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.

What is the difference between the two degrees. Both the degrees leads to a masters in architecture and with that can be registered with the association of architects.

  71. brincks26 says:

    For those who don’t know what design contest in crowd sourcing is:

    It’s when a business requires a product design, many designers will spend time to design something. The person holding the contest will ask to make changes then after the contest ends they choose only ONE designer.

    It is unfair for the designers who gets nothing as they spent all their time on designing and get nothing.

The two I’m mainly considering are web design and graphic design. I personally would prefer being in graphic design, but I hear that the income isn’t that great, and I’m not that creative or decisive, so I’m leaning towards web design. I’m just not that sure, though.
    I’m trying to find out class and skill requirements, annual salary, and maybe more details about each career. Also personal input would be great, too!

    I’m a prospective art/design school student and have been looking through catalogs and websites of various colleges. I’ve noticed some of these schools offer industrial design degrees, others product design degrees, and a few have both. I think I might want to try product design, but I’m not really sure as to what industrial design is and whether or not that’s actually what I’m looking for. Can someone tell me what the difference between these two majors are? Examples of jobs that each would have would also be helpful.

    Not specific types of design like web and such. Just a general definition for overall design if that makes any sense. It’s for a class on the fundamentals of design.

  108. Dom L says:

    Graphic design has plenty of divergent definitions out there; and I’d like to hear the personal opinions of what people think graphic design should be defined as. I’m welcoming answers from designers and non-designers alike.

  109. Dom L says:

    I contacted a designer over a month ago to design a marketing piece and it’s still no where near being done (to my knowledge). I’ve always designed my own stuff but I’m getting too busy and am outsourcing so I’m not familiar with the design industry. Am I being unreasonable or should this be done yet? I was quoted I would be billed at 2-6 hours, so I figured it should be done. I would like to find out if my expectation of two weeks tops is unreasonable before I say anything to him/her because they’re a really nice person. I had a another designer design something and it took her a few months as well. This is just too long for me. Am I just having bad luck or expecting too much? What’s standard turnaround time here?

    How do businesses use social media to establish relationship marketing with their customers?

  129. _marky_mark_ says:

    I go to a private school in Wisconsin. This school tracks social media accounts even when they are private and anything posted that is offensive towards staff (or obviously illegal) is punished harshly. I was wondering how they can see private accounts, if searching private accounts is legal, and if someone can be legally punished for saying something like “(staff member) is a d*ck”. It just does not seem right to me that the school would exercise so much control over what non-illegal things are said. Thank you for your help

  135. Taylor G says:

    So me and my friends have a band and now that we have all the content we want we feel like its time to mass distribute our stuff out there through social media. It’s just we are confused with what social media we should use as aband and which ones should be personal. The obvious ones are Facebook, twitter, and YouTube which should all be personal and band. The ones I’m confused about are websites like Instagram, tumblr, Pinterest and Flickr – should we use these social media sites as just for our personal uses or should we have a band account on those websites also? Are stuff like tumblr Pinterest, Flickr and Instagram suited for bands or are they more for the account to be personal because if its a band then we all have access to the account or are all admins or whatever.
