The Epoch of the Hashtag

The metadata tags go back all the way to 1988 on a platform known as Internet Relay Chat or IRC. That pound (#) symbol was actually being used to group messages, images, and other content on the IRC.

Jump to 2003 where you have Chris Messina, a social technology expert, who asked his following how they would feel about using the pound sign to keep track of conversations on Twitter.

I received a call yesterday of a man who was responding to a proposal that I had sent to him a week ago. The call came from the owner of a small firm doing business here in Atlanta and the conversation started off great. My original thought was he would ask me “where to sign”!

As an avid technology enthusiast, I am always looking up new and exciting technologies that may be instrumental in our clients future marketing campaigns.

One such technology asked for Marketing Eye's competitors, and did an analysis on where they sit from a digital perspective compared to Marketing Eye Atlanta. It was fascinating. Our company is a mere 4 years old in the US, and in year one, we realized that we outperformed all our competitors on Google listings/rankings and all areas of social media. It was something we were very proud of, as we don't spend all day pushing this medium, but a bit over 30 minutes in total including writing this blog.

Dress For The Social Media Platform

Someone recently ask me… “how do you tell what kind of voice you use for each social media platform?”

The question really got me thinking. Each platform has a specific personality.  All postings should be based on your audience, but you have to think about how they want to hear your valuable information. Do they want to read an extensive study? Would they prefer a humorous anecdote. What are they looking for? An easy way to make that decision is: What kind of attire is your audience wearing when they read your post?”
