One of the difficulties we have in social media is measuring just about everything we do. Seriously, how do we know that our efforts on the different social media platforms are actually making an impact? I am not sure we will fully know the answer to that question, but there are some tools that can help you put at least a few pieces of the puzzle together that can give you a glimpse at your influence in the social media world. The three most prominent tools are Klout, Kred, and PeerIndex. Understand these are not perfect, but put them together and I think you will get a decent picture.
This graphic thanks to onlinedegrees.com gives a really nice overview of what Klout, Kred and PeerIndex is all about.

Well it’s officially over. The days of that FREE Facebook business page that you created is no longer FREE. Well, let’s put it this way it’s no longer free if you want everyone to see your posts. Have you noticed recently you are not getting the responses to your posts that you used to? There is a reason for it. Facebook in their great wisdom has decided that if you have a page with over 400 “Likes” and you post something interesting, or you want your “Likers” to see, only about 15% of those people will see it on their Newsfeed. If you want everyone to see it, you will have to pay for it. The costs start at around $5 per post, and then go up depending on how long you run it, who you target, and the number of people, etc. The Bottomline…you are going to pay if you want your post to be seen.
What does this mean for you and your business page?
