One of the best ideas that we had for our wedding was to create and promote a hashtag that people could use to tag photos they took on Twitter and Instagram of wedding day activities.  We promoted it on our website and in our invitations and it was really great because we were able to crowdsource some candid moments behind-the-scenes at our wedding that we might not have been able to get since a photographer can’t be everywhere at once.

My year on Twitter in 2012

For those of you that are active on Twitter you should really check out Vizify. It’s a sweet site that came out a little while ago that lets you see what you tweeted about in 2012 in a visual infographic of sorts. It’s pretty interesting to see what were the most popular things that you tweeted over the last year. For me, my top three keywords were marketing, team and #HookEm. Check out my full year on Twitter here.

The 1% Fake

Recently there has been a lot of articles being written about how to assess the quality of your followers, especially with the article from Mashable citing that the main @Twitter account likely has almost 33% of its followers potentially being spam bots and “fake” followers.

I find this really interesting and have started wondering to myself what the  Fake Follower trend would be if you compared individuals’ accounts vs. brands’ accounts…who would have more fake followers more often? I used the StatusPeople tool mentioned in the article to check how many of my Twitter followers were fake, thinking that it might be some huge number because would 768 people (As of September 2012) really find what I have to say interesting? As it turns out, maybe! I only had 1% of my followers as potential “fakers” with almost 95% of my followers being “good”. What a pleasant surprise! Long story short, it will definitely be something to keep an eye on in terms of how organizations start dealing with spam bots and fake followers and what organizations like the IAB might do to help control this sort of spam.
