It’s true that social media marketing is here to stay and continues to grow and evolve. If you aren’t growing and evolving along with it, you might as well not be doing it. Most businesses (even the hesitant ones) have created business profiles on social networking sites but many still struggle to find success. That’s mostly due to the fact that they are aimlessly trying to figure it out as they go and don’t have a legitimate social media strategy in place.

When you clutter your posts with too much information, it creates a poor user experience. For example, if it includes too many tags, hashtags, @mentions, links, etc. it can take awhile to figure out what the actual point of the post is. Keep your posts simple and straightforward and keep the “extras” to a minimum. When people see that your posts are useful and uncluttered, they’ll be eager to follow you!

One of the main goals of social media is to find a way to engage your followers. This is done by posting content that people will find interesting. If you’re constantly just posting links, followers will lose interest. You need to mix up your content so that you can keep your audience engaged. Keep them involved by asking them questions and getting feedback. Sure, it’s okay to continue posting links, but it’s important to remember that social media is about being social, which means that you should engage your followers by interacting with them.

Ultimately, reformers failed in their attempts to break up media monopolies while creating a more education-oriented broadcast system.

Reformers were accused of trying to “BBC-ize” American radio, and were denounced for being socialistic.
