Number of followers and fans versus number of brand mentions
Posted By Nick Shin On August 6, 2010 @ 11:56 am In Social Media | 3 Comments
Just when I thought our inaugural chat last week was going to be the peak of its existence, even more of you showed up for the second #smmeasure weekly chat. The total number of tweets almost doubled from 400 last week to 700 this week. I want to thank everyone who participated and helped spread the word. A big thanks to Sysomos’ Community Manager Sheldon Levine @sysomos for co-hosting the chat.
Last week , we started the chat with high-level questions. This week, we changed it up a bit to discuss the number of followers and fans versus brand-mention debate. Below is just a small taste of the great conversation we had. A full transcript  is also available.
Q1: What’s more important to you? Followers/fans vs. brand mentions?
Followers/fans are more important
Q2: Which ranks higher on the priority list? Growing followers/fans vs. growing discussions?
Q3: What would you rather have? Having a few key people mentioning your brand vs. having masses of random people?
Some bonus tweets that I had to include. When you join a chat full of insightful, informative and amusing Twitter users, this is what you get:
Check back here every week for #smmeasure announcements and weekly questions. If you have any questions or specific topics that you would like us to discuss in the future, please tweet @smmeasure  or @marketwire . Keep track of all of the #smmeasure chat recaps .
Until next time,
