social media millennials

By January 31, 2017 http://www.socialmediaexaminer.com/reaching-millennials-with-social-media-new-research

#1: Millennials Are Digital Shoppers

#2: New Platform Features Spur Millennial Adoption

Facebook –  An RBC Capital Markets social media survey showed that in the last year, an average of 33% of Millennials who took the survey increased the time they spent on Facebook, whereas an average of 23.5% decreased their time on Facebook.

Instagram –
instagram users

Twitter – twitter users

Snapchat – snapchat users

#3: Millennials Prefer Indirect Sales Messages

youtube adds users

These days, the preferred formats are content marketing and influencer marketing.

the old “sell without selling” idea.

In your content marketing, give Millennials something for their time, attention, and (hopefully) loyalty. They’re more likely to trust your brand if you show a genuine interest in educating them with a how-to, for example.

While some faculty members are hesitant to contact students on whichever social media platform is in vogue, others have explored texting as an alternative to email.

The paper, which is being presented at next month’s Information and Telecommunications Education and Research Association conference, also recommends colleges should consider using texting and social media platforms to reach students. However, the findings still suggest email can be an effective method of communication.

10 Social Media Apps in 2016

10 Social Media Apps You Should Be Using in 2016 (But Probably Aren’t)

https://blog.hootsuite.com/best-social-media-apps-list/

The Roll

The Roll app will help you make sure your images are the best they can be. The Roll analyzes your photos, rates them on a zero to 100 scale, and adds keywords for easy search (much like Google Photos).

The Roll has more features than I have time to write about it here. Just do yourself a favor and check it out. Your visual content will thank you.

Download The Roll for iPhone

Tuurnt

Tuurnt is a social media app and platform following in the ephemeral footsteps of Snapchat. Giving users 24 hours to respond to photos and videos, Tuurnt turns regular visual posts into social events where participation and contribution from both known contacts and public users is encouraged.

Storehouse

The app allows you to take photos and videos from your phone’s camera roll (or from Instagram, Flickr, and Dropbox) to create a shareable “story.”

Yubl

Yubl’s success can be attributed to not only the highly detailed interface, but the three main areas of the user experience. “Private” is for one-on-one or invite-only group, ‘Public’ is an open forum across the entire social network (including brands and celebrities), and ‘Explore’ is for searching and finding other users such as brands and celebrities.

Rex

share your favorite movies, music, books, TV shows, videos, restaurants, bars, travel destinations, and anything else you like.

Firef.ly

plan your trips, acts as a guide, encourages you to capture moments along the way, and then ‘relive’ your experiences.

Download Firef.ly for iPhone

Venmo

send and receive money free of charge, transfer to your bank, and checkout on other apps with just one touch.

Interact

Create, delete, and manage contact groups for easy, quick communication with teams, friends, and family. iOS only

Quik

Quik allows users to create stylized videos with just a few taps on their mobile devices. Once your video is done, you can post directly to your social media accounts through Quik.
my note. compare Quik to other video editing free tools for mobiles: http://blog.stcloudstate.edu/ims/2016/01/21/video-editing-for-mobile-devices/

Pushbullet

The app bridges the gap between your phone and computer, and, as Gizmodo explains, “automatically sends all your phone notifications over to your computer in the form of little windows.

 

phone plans to consider

my note: the alternative for VoIP is growing – next to Skype, Google hangouts, FB Messenger to mention only view, not Google and Snapchat are elbowing their way… Free options for education. It will be difficult to standardize; who will provide a platform, which will allow to pole students what of all those choices they want to use for education?

Google just announced a new service called Fiber Phone — here’s how it works

http://www.businessinsider.com/what-is-google-fiber-phone-2016-3

If you’ve used Google Voice, Google’s app that provides select phone services, then many of Fiber Phone’s features will be familiar to you. You’ll get cheap international-calling options and be able to choose your own phone number, and your voicemails will be transcribed and texted to you. It also includes spam filtering and a “do not disturb” function.

Fiber Phone will be available only as a $10-per-month add-on

Snapchat is maturing by playing catch up.

Snapchat now allows people to make voice calls, send audio messages, and send video messages.

High Schools Experiment With Snapchat to Reach Teens

http://www.usnews.com/education/blogs/high-school-notes/2016/03/14/high-schools-experiment-with-snapchat-to-reach-teens

My note: the US News and World Report is behind times on its reporting, unless this article has been held for a while by their editor: teenagers moved from Snapchat as quickly as they moved away from Facebook to Twitter and from Twitter to Snapchat. The generation, which is running US News and World Report is way too slow to notice the nomadic social media moves of the Millennials.

Here is the January 2016, exchange among faculty on the blend/online education listserv, which could’ve helped the author, Alexandra Pannoni line up with the times:
http://blog.stcloudstate.edu/ims/2016/01/11/social-network-highered/

The cited case from Nebraska, Katelyn Gilroy, a library media specialist, who is using Snapchat or school purposes, can undoubtedly have a niche in education, enticing students to learn about their library, reading, etc.

However, it is questionable to present the media specialist’s case from Nebraska as a blank statement; a case, which can be adopted nationwide. Ms. Pannoni fails to mention that since 15 years ago, when instant messaging was the “snapchat” of the times, U.S. students consider these applications their “virtual mall,” where they like to hang out, but are not keen to consider them for educational purposes. In the same fashion, U.S. students are somehow unique in considering Facebook, later Twitter, then Snapchat and now Kik, Yammer, Celly, or Elgg a domain reserved for their private, extracurricular activities.
