#LikeableChat, the Place to Discuss Social Media

30 Apr

Last night I participated in my first tweetchat. I joined #likeablechat, a chat that discusses likable social media and social media in general. The chat meets every Sunday at 10 p.m. EST. The topic of the chat that I participated in was the adaptability of social media.

The way the chat worked was that the moderator, Michelle Weisman, @ottogrl, asked questions to all of the participants and the participants would respond. As participants replied to the questions, other participants would respond and interact with each other.

There were 6 questions that were posed to the participants.

1.How are businesses adapting to social media?

2.Do brands need to engage with their community 24/7?

3.What brands uses social media well?

4.Is social media becoming more difficult or easier to adapt to?

5.How do you convince c-level execs to adapt to to social media?

6.What brands use social media well and what brands don’t use social media well?

There were a variety of answers and everyone had a different opinion. I noticed that a lot of people re-tweeted each other when they liked what someone said. There were a lot of great ideas and insight floating around the chat. One thing that I noticed was that a lot of the participants said that it was not necessary to engage with the community 24/7. I don’t agree with this. I think that it is important to engage with the community through social media as much as possible. The more of a presence you have, the more people will notice you and the more likeable the brand is.

I enjoyed checking out #likeablechat and will be participating next Sunday at 10:00 p.m. EST, will you?

    That sounds like it was a great chat to participate in! I participated in one without a lot of structure, so I would imagine that the six questions helped to keep the conversation on topic. Maybe I’ll check it out next week.
