How to track social media marketing results

It’s easy to jump into social media without really thinking through how it will work for you.

How are you going to determine the results (in fact, in a lot of cases, what do you WANT the results to be? But we’ll come to that in a future post)?

What should you be measuring? How can you measure it?

This great infographic from Infographic World offers answers. Not only does it tell you WHAT you should be measuring, but it tells you the tools you can use to give you the information you need.

How to stop Facebook videos playing automatically

stop-facebook-videoYou may have noticed that recently Facebook have implemented a feature where videos uploaded to the site automatically play in your newsfeed, without the need to click on them.

Not only is this annoying, it has potentially costly consequences for mobile users with limited data tariffs. Imagine being charged for downloading data you didn’t even want to see in the first place!

Thankfully the guys at Mobile Geeks have found the solution:

In your browser, click on the small downward pointing arrow on the top right corner of the Facebook page, then scroll down to ‘settings’. Next click ‘Video’ on the bottom left column and you will see your account’s ‘Auto-play Videos’ settings which has a small box allowing you to choose ‘On’ or ‘Off . Select ‘Off’ and videos will not play until you decide to click them.

They also have a mobile solution, but you’ll have to visit their site to find that one out 🙂 Don’t forget to leave them a comment to say thank you!
