The right and wrong ways brands use social media

First, let’s begin with a question – is there a right way and a wrong way for brands to use social media? Here’s an answer – it’s a trick question because, in my opinion, there is no right and wrong way. Wait, so actually I guess the answer is no. Some prolific users of social media might argue differently, but every brand or person can do whatever they want with their online persona.

It really depends on the goals a brand sets out to achieve that will determine if there really is a right or wrong way. Is the goal to increase followers and engagement or simply to advertise coupons or deals? You’ve heard it before, social media is still pretty much like the wild west and there are no rules.

Using LinkedIn Company Pages

LinkedIn has created a more robust Company Pages feature with space for a prominent “cover” photo and top bar navigation that brings it in line with Twitter and Facebook. Ultimately, the changes aren’t drastic from a user’s standpoint, but I can only imagine the amount of design work that went into the refresh.

Aside from the new cover photo, LinkedIn allows companies to feature career openings, the products or services they sell and insights which breaks down new hires/titles, departures and the other viewed companies. We’ve already added a cover photo which we use on Facebook, but it will be a temporary placeholder until we create a LinkedIn Pages-exclusive photo.
