Social Media Influence with Elijah Kinyanjui #SocialMediaNaks
Over the past decade, marketers have increasingly turned to social media networks like Facebook and Twitter to create buzz around their products. But what impact do tweets and other recommendations have on sales, and how can companies get a bigger return on their investments in these important channels?
Using socialmedia Web sites is among the most common activity of today’s children and adolescents. Any Web site that allows social interaction is considered a socialmedia site, including social networking sites such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter; video sites such as YouTube and blogs. Such sites offer today’s youth a portal for entertainment and communication and have grown exponentially in recent years.
Studies and personal experience reveal people tend to put their best foot forward while interacting on social media. Displays of emotional weakness, insecurity, or conflicts generally tend to be concealed or minimised on social networking sites. It is often difficult, if not impossible, on inter webs to reveal the qualities that define deep, intimate relationships. While our online media friends offer us a great deal, it is not a true substitute or even supplement for real-life interactions with others.
Journalist blogger, freelance writer and human rights champion, Elijah Kinyanjui Maina, has been writing since 1990. You would imagine him as an old goon seemingly non-conversant with social media euphoria but would be surprised to learn that he runs a news page on Facebook called Nakuru County News Online and a website currently under construction called www.nakurunewspark.com Besides, he is also presently the Admin of Nakuru Analysts, the most influential WhatsApp Group on matters Nakuru.
Kinyanjui joins us at Legacy Hotel this Saturday on Fatuma’s Voice to talk about the secrets, challenges and triumphs in social media influence. Are you a blogger or perhaps just a social media aficionado? We would love to hear your perspectives on Social Media Influence and how it can benefit Nakuru people.
Over music and poetry we hope to host you as we have this conversation together.
