New Kids on the Social Media Block

Have you heard about the "new kid's" on the social media block? No? Here's the scoop. The new kids are Tsu and Ello. These are the latest additions to the social network world. I'm sure some of you are saying, "Oh no, not another one!"  Yes, another one or two.

TSU

Tsu is a social network company, based in New York that promises to share their ad revenue with its users  that actively post and invite their friends to  join. For a more in-depth understanding of Tsu, check out Kurt Wagner's article, "New Social Network - Which Pays Users Who Post - Raises $7 million.  I signed up for the service this morning (it's been on my to-do list), so I'm going to try it out to see if this something I may want to stick with.

Ello

I am still trying to get use to Ello, another social media network that is still in beta. There has been a lot of talk about Ello on other social media platforms.  So many people were signing up, the servers crashed. It took a good while to receive an invite.  This network states it is 100 percent ad-free and they promise to stay ad free.  The interface of Ello is very basic and after using the social media platform for two weeks, I can say that I am still on the fence about the platform and all it has to offer. It takes a lot of getting use to and I am not there yet.

I would like to hear your thoughts about Ello and Tsu.

What About Google Plus?

Google Plus, Savvy Girl Friday, Social Media, What about google plus?I am jazzed to  see local officials using Google Hangouts for a meeting.  Technology is ever changing and its good to see them keep up with the change. :-) Here lately, I have become a G+ advocate. (Are you listening Google??)  When a client talks about being  on Facebook, I usually say, "Have you looked at G+?" Yes, I get the deer in the headlights look. :-)  So I go on to ask these questions:

  • What search engine do you prefer?
  • Who do you have an email account with?
  • What map app do you use?

Now, it's funny that most to say.... Google, Gmail, and Google Maps....  My next response is this. You trust Google to give you relevant information during your searches, you trust Gmail to handle your email, and you trust Google Map to get you where you need to go.  Why not trust Google Plus to handle your web presence??

I am reminded of something  someone said at one of our social media events. "Whether you know it or not, Google IS a big part of your life so embrace it!"

 

What's your favorite social media platform? Tell me about it in the comments. I look forward to hearing from you!
