Why Monitor Social News Media?

image

Pervasive

There is a no barrier to entry. Anyone can start a social media handle or a blog. Many of these are professional journalists who are no longer constrained by the discipline imposed by their organisations. Many become viral. Many such handles are more popular than the newspapers which employed the authors. These cannot be ignored by any credible organisation.

image

Longetivity

A social media post or blog is timeless. A post or article can be ignored by readers on the day of its publication and discovered following a simple search on the web after several months or several years. This represents the potential for long-term damage.

image

Credibility

Social media may not have much credibility to a professional but may be seen as fully credible by young and new readers who tend to consume all their news online. Social media posts keep getting reposted to ease of posting.

image

Global Impact

Social media has global impact of huge proportions. A traditional news media is consumed when a reader takes an action such clicking a link. A social media post is served to readers globally because someone else in the group chose to share it. A news about your company may be shared in a Facebook group giving it unparallelled visibility among your competitors, vendors and customers.

Authority

Social media gets credibility when it gets seen by your customers or is quoted by your competitors.

Reuse Value

A social media post never dies. It keeps getting re-used and keeps getting new lease of life.
