Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter: Which one reaches more people?
Help us decide! Help the most and win a prize!
In an effort to gain support for to our job seeker support effort entitled CODE for Free Agents, we have designed a simple experiment to determine which social media is best to spread the message, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter. Here’s how it works: On each social media, a posting was placed to a few groups of friends and connections, and followers. The posting briefly explained the challenge and encouraged the recipient to join the effort using that form of social media. By sharing, joining, following, commenting, and generally socializing, our vast combined networks can draw attention to ways to help the many job seekers of the world find hope and a path forward. Our goal is to open a positive and encouraging dialog that changes lives, creating The Economy of One, one Free Agent at a time, over and over again.
Please take time to share a link to this site with your networks! This is the most effective way to spread the message. The easiest ways are to click on the icon of your choice at the bottom of the page, or to copy and paste the address of the page of your choice from this site. Thank you for your support!
How the Social Experiment is Scored
Our Social Media Experiment results will be updated weekly on this page. Here’s how it will be scored. Each social media site has a special landing page assigned to it and a forum on that social media. A person can register multiple “votes” for their favorite social media by participating in multiple ways. The following for each social media will be counted:
1. Unique visits to the landing page for the particular site. (Google somehow knows if you come back over and over again, so you can’t cheat.)
2. Shares/likes of all kinds for the landing page. (A “tweet” from the Facebook landing page is a point for Facebook)
3. Shares/likes for the particular social media on this page or the home page of the site. (No matter who “tweets,” it’s a point for Twitter.)
4. The number of times someone uses a link to any page on this site from anywhere on the Social media site. (If someone clicks on a link you posted to this site on Facebook, it’s a point for Facebook, no matter what page on the site it points to.)
5. The number of members of the designated forum for each site. (Likes of the Facebook fan page, members of the LinkedIn group, followers of the @EconomyOfOne Twitter account.
6. The number of postings, likes, tweets, or comments on the forum. (Tweets that include @EconomyOfOne or #Eof1 will count.) Any inappropriate input will be deleted and not counted, so keep it clean!
This page was updated with results weekly through the end of the 2011.
