Do you have a social media strategy in place?
Not that long ago, the majority of businesses were using direct marketing, mail, print advertisements, telemarketing, trade shows and emails to engage the general public and get them interested in the products or services they are selling.
Enter the social media era, and everything has changed. According to +Statistic Brain, today 58% of all adults worldwide are using some form of social media via laptops, mobiles, tablets, e-readers, and Internet-enabled TVs, and Canada is among the top 10 most engaged countries for social networking.
Tip #1 - Identify Your Social Media Goals
How can social media help your business? What do you want to achieve? If your goal is to boost your organic search rankings you should definitely get on Google+ and YouTube, but if you want to be social as part of your customer service and support efforts it might make sense to use Facebook and Twitter and Google+ hangouts.

Have you seen this video yet? A Solid watch for those who have a brand page or want to learn more about "likes" on Facebook.. explains with details and examples, how Likes purchased through the legit Facebook system of "get more likes"... means a big fat 0 for you and your company.
The Basic idea is.. you can buy likes from spammers.. but facebook could detect those bought likes, so those fake likers.. like ALL the facebook ads to mask the 'fake likes'... And that means a whole lot of non engagement for you and your hard earned company dollars.
And this folks... Is why dear Faceybook is and continues to be in serious trouble... Their model is flawed and companies are starting to wake up to that fact.
Why are companies so resistant to Google+? This burned 'but I trusted you Facebook(and Myspace for that matter)" might have a thing or two to do with it. It's also been a lot easier to get those likes on Facebook and report back to your boss that your job is done for the day. Boom Up 500 Likes! But did that result in any sales, engagement, branding improvement? Don't ask your social media guy about that one. Google + does indeed take more work, but your interactions here, are real ones. I have countless stats showing crowdfunding done, voting won and businesses getting sales with G+ as their number one source of traffic. Your fans here DO stuff with you.
The difference in my mind, Google is and never has been anywhere in the same space as Facebook. Not all companies are perfect, but I've always enjoyed how opt-in and clear Google has been with its privacy polices. Facebook changes how things work especially around privacy.. with no notification or thought to its users; Corporations or Users for that matter.
Facebook only know what you liked in the past. Google knows what you are looking for 'right now'.. and that is why the advertising model works on Google and Not on Facebook. and it never will

I find one to many businesses and their social media people could learn a thing or two from this here ironic comic.. :)
One of the main purposes of social networking... is the social part. You need to be real. You need to not sell your product all the time. This goes for musicians, business owners, bloggers, web designers, you tube stars, and social media experts... You need to be interesting and provide value.... Just like you do in real life to make friends... err gain fans.. err followers... err.. people.
Stop self promoting non-stop. No one likes non-stop commercials.. Not even you... So why does your gplus, twitter, facebook fan pages have nothing but advertisements about how great you and your company are?
