Last week Facebook stated that they once again intend to reduce organic reach by making changes to the news feed algorithm. Earlier this year a study revealed that the organic reach for brands declined to 2-6%. This development, together with the recent statement from Facebook, underlines the importance for content amplification and increases the demand as marketers seek to compensate for the drop in organic reach.

With the growing number of social platforms, businesses have numerous ways to communicate with their customers.
 Today we are taking a look at the mobile app ‘Snapchat’, that allows for its users to send images that automatically delete themselves a few seconds after being viewed.

It seems like Snapchat has gotten a lot of attention in the tech world lately. Around 200,000 private Snapchat images were hacked which, of course, raises the question of user security. Furthermore the social network’s Chief Executive, Evan Spiegel, announced last week that the service will no longer be ad-free. Nevertheless, Snapchat, with a core audience of 13-25 year old kids, makes it easy to reach the youth who may or may not use Snapchat as an escape from the maturity that has invaded Facebook.

ECIS2014

Attending the European Conference of Information Systems in Tel Aviv last week, I was happy to find that areas such as data visualization, predictive analytics, social CRM and ROI etc found their way into the conference. These areas have been somewhat excluded in the past by more traditional information systems research. This shift in mindset also shows a warming towards potential industry topics on the program that can be far more relevant to practice. Industries such as marketing now rely heavily on a new field of social data science to make sense of the large quantities of information about their brand community.

In the following, I will present three new research initiatives from the conference that in my opinion ought to be credited for their contribution to the field social business intelligence. They offered exceptional concrete value to practitioners of social business intelligence: Read more
