I finally registered for a Twitter account and just added it to my Daniweb Profile. At first, I tried to add the full URL, but an error message popped up stating only letters, numbers, and underscores were allowed. So I changed the field entry to my username only (not even the @ sign.) It was then accepted. In the Google Plus field, the complete URL is entered, and is behaving as expected. In the LinkedIn field, the complete URL is entered, and I believe it is behaving as it should. It seems inconsistent that some fields accept the complete URL …

I'm starting ad campaign on all three for a B2B product. I'd like to know, from your experience so far, what PPC and/or PPV results re acceptable enough for you?! I'm planing to run adds for at least 2 weeks, 2-3 different for each network and will share my data after but for now it sure would help me to know what to look/expect from them. Thanks!

There can be no denying the impact that social media has had on business, you only have to look at the reach it has: well over a billion people between Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn subscribers. What's more, there is no sign of the social media bubble bursting just yet. ![socmedtutorial](/attachments/small/0/socmedtutorial.jpg "align-right") However, social media is actually much more than just a numbers game and in order for any marketing campaign to succeed then businesses simply have to understand how to embrace it properly. Indeed, the potential for extending the reach of your business and your brand has never been bigger. …

I have been spending a lot of time on LinkedIn lately and one feature I find annoying is the infinite scroll. I simply want to learn more about some companies: their size, earnings, number of employees, mailing address, etc. So I go to the company page on LinkedIn and quickly scroll to the bottom. However, I only read about one line about the company before more content loads and the company profile gets pushed down off the page. So I have to scroll down again to get back to the profile. Is there a way to disable this infinite scroll …

That's the surprising consensus reached at a meeting of 30 CSOs representing some of the UK's leading enterprises held in London during the past week. This despite a poll at the bi-annual [URL="http://www.csointerchange.org"]CSO Interchange[/URL] event revealing that those same CSOs view social networking as the most over-hyped threat. When it came to the round table discussions on the subject of social networking, however, the gathered CSOs expressed what has been called a "strong preference" for companies to consider banning them all. Well, almost all, as LinkedIn gets an exception as most of the CSOs considered that acceptable. Could that possibly …

The latest VIPRE Report from [GFI Labs](http://www.gfi.com) suggests that 2013 started off as a bad year for social network-based cybercrime attacks. The report, which analysed the ten most prevalent threats detected during the month of January, identified phishing messages on both Twitter and Facebook as well as malicious spam messages disguised as event invites on LinkedIn. The report identified a substantial upturn in social networking-related phishing, with Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn all being targeted with a variety of new creative attacks, a situation not helped by the announcement from Twitter that it had been hacked, resulting in over 250,000 user …

It's now official, account passwords for the popular business social network LinkedIn have been compromised. Vicente Silveira, a director at LinkedIn, has confirmed that some of the passwords that were published online by a Russian hacking group "correspond to LinkedIn accounts". How many of the 161 million LinkedIn members have been impacted by this breach is as yet unknown, however it is likely to be a relatively small percentage as the published list of passwords is 'only' 6.5 million in number, even if LinkedIn passwords prove to be the vast majority if not all of them. ![dweb-leakedin](/attachments/small/0/dweb-leakedin.jpg "align-right") The list …

Does anyone have any experience/insights into the Linkedin DirectAds program? I have a client who thinks they might want to try it as an alternative to adwords in google. Any help would be appreciated.

Everyone seems to be talking about how [URL="http://www.itwire.com/content/view/25376/53/"]first Facebook[/URL] and now Twitter are being adopted by business users, as if the concept of social networking in a business environment was somehow new. Of course, the truth is that services such as LinkedIn have been providing just that for many years now. Indeed, LinkedIn has fairly quietly grown to some 51 million members worldwide now, yet still seems to struggle to command the same type of [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/news/story231619.html"]media pulling power[/URL] that either Twitter or Facebook have when it comes to generating news headlines and publicity. I suspect there will be no such …

Mashable is reporting that Facebook's COO, Sheryl Sandberg, revealed that Facebook is averaging 45 million status updates from 30 million unique visitors per day. So in the last few weeks, along with this info plus the 5 billionth tweet through Twitter and Linkedin going over the 50 million mark in subscribers. Some outlets have reported stats that say that growth is starting to level off in the social media world but I am not so sure.

In the last 2 days on Mashable it has been reported that new user and unique visitor growth has leveled out for both Facebook and Twitter (both are below 2% growth per month in the US over the last few months). Linkedin, however, is growing at close to 6% monthly both in the US and internationally. Additionally, Linkedin recently surpassed the 50 million mark in users. The question is, do these two trends indicate that Linkedin is on its way to being the social media of choice for businesses? I would say so but as there is no advertising in …

I am not indicating that I have knowledge of the what Linkedin is doing, I am simply using them as an example. Linkedin has become very popular as a social media site for business professional and it is huge. I could easily see Linkedin or some other company create a linkedin-like app that could be made industry specific, sort of like the social media network that was created just for government employees. Does anyone else agree or have a different opinion?

A popular social media tactic for small businesses is to establish and build a corporate presence on LinkedIn. Has this helped your business? Did you get any new leads? What do you think?

There's an interesting article over at [URL="http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/161270/social_networks_risks_for_business_security.html"]PCWorld[/URL] this week suggesting that social networking Web sites are putting businesses at risk for security breaches. Author Howard Price says now that it's possible to link personal accounts like Twitter and Facebook to accounts at career-oriented sites like LinkedIn, a single status message is often cross-posted across all of a user's accounts. That's not a big deal if your employees limit their messages to what they had for lunch, but it might be if your senior sales manager complains openly about a recent meeting with a potential client. The ability to connect personal …
