Review of the J-Krak Communities
Once again, this was a week where we did not have to create a video. Instead, we conducted a review of the J-Krak communities that Kim Scroggins and I had created. We compared our efforts on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and MySpace. We also reviewed our efforts in the blogosphere.
Our efforts were all as strong as we could make them (at least, I believe so). But our levels of success were certainly all over the place. We ranged from exceeding our thirty follower requirement for Facebook in about an hour, to nearly no engagement or followers in Google+. Although, in all fairness, the number of views on Google+ was fairly impressive. We were about to join the overall conversation in Twitter.
The Communities That Didn’t Do So Well
Our experience on MySpace was, we felt, a waste of time. It was the one of the J-Krak communities that did the worst.
And our blog had a decent following, and the followers were, by the end of the semester, beginning to tip more heavily into the realm of true followers. This was as opposed to our classmates, friends, and families. Those are people who would follow us in order to be nice and help us out, versus people who were truly interested in our message.
If we had continued, I feel there was a possibility of getting an even greater following.
Instead, we wrote up a PowerPoint slide show to get together our strategy for the final two weeks of the semester.
We spent time over the past week performing a lot more social listening and analysis. We grabbed screen shots of all sorts of things which ended up in our final project, which I will post next week.
J-Krak Communities, On Balance
I hope you enjoy our presentation about our review of the J-Krak Communities.
