This week I will be blogging about Facebook and how companies, business’s and brands will use facebook. I have chosen to do Castle the television series that airs on ABC which is the company/business I chose to do the blog about. ABC is known as a television station that holds a lot of television series such as Castle which is one of my favorite shows. I am going to go into detail on how well they have actually done with the Castle Facebook page.
I have chosen as you all know ABC for my Facebook blog on Castle. I have chosen this facebook page not only because I like Castle the series but how they can interact with me and other Castle fans. How do they respond what is new and upcoming for this fun and exciting series, what have they done to catch their fans to follow them on facebook. At first what I sound interesting was how they have other sites that you can follow from facebook itself such as looking at photo’s, following them on twitter, ABC’s own social Hub, Pinterest, #Caskett moments, events, likes, polls, a check in site and also videos from the show. So if you have missed anything you can cathc up on what you missed talk to other Castle fans/followers. They have interactive spots in their timeline so you can ask Castle questions, even connecting you to the site to talk to the famous Richard Castle by going to RichardCastle.net. The value of this site for their fans is that can watch and dicuss what they have seen all in one place as soon as they see the episode that just on or even one they have missed right on ABC Castle Facebook page they can go right into a full conversation with other fans or followers that are interested in the show. They have visual content such as pictures and videos showing what is happening in Castle what is coming up, what has actually happened. The site is very updated from week to week so you don’t miss anything that has happened on the show, they talk and get involved with their fan base and followers. So far they have a hit of 37,222 who like the site alone as well as having 346K talking about the Castle site. I find the numbers amazing of how many people actually like the show and how ABC keeps it very professional and up to date on all thing’s Castle. They also advertise or show what Castles books are out. They also count down to how many days there are until the season premere of the when Castle starts. Which it already has and it’s and excting season already. They also get the fan base and followers into the page by giving spoilers, quotes from the show and many other fun facts and photos.
I found the page to be fun, exciting and interesting all at the same time, very updated kept especially me wanting to keep searching the facebook page. I know I am a fan of the show already but it give you many more chances to talk to other’s about the show, watch any episodes that you may have missed without having to pay for it. It’s a company and facebook page I know I would come back and visit more now than I did before. I found that ABC did a great job on the site they made it interactive for fans/followers and give them many more ways to follow Castle not only through Facebook but Twitter followers as well. I give this site a thumbs up for what they have done, I like the site and it’s very well done and organized.
This week’s blog that I’m doing is on Research in Motion the company that owns Blackberry. I will be talking about their twitter profile page and how well they react with their customers/users such as the new blackberry 10 for instance. I find Research in Motion very interesting company but kind of sorry to say slacking with their competition with apple and slowly are going downhill. But I am going to look at the upside of the company and how well they handle themselves with their own twitter page on their company and how they respond and deal with fellow tweeters and followers.
I find that Research in Motion has used their Twitter account to what their actual company is about their stocks and in their phones which I find very interesting it looks good and goes with their theme of the company. Their use of the Twitter page is well done because it is well organized, they interact with their consumers when they post RIM: Blackberry reacts with them on what new and updating products they have. The page is black and bold just like their phone is. They are very good at keeping very orgainized, neat and is very informative in what their products are such as adding side bars on their updated news, how they have a website called crackberry.com that you can go check out. I find they are doing a good job because they are getting people involved with their business, they want to get their opinions on what is going on such as asking people what they are doing to be bold. They respond to you immediatly when you mention any of their products, they also post video’s about blackberry 10. They have even posted the blackberry community managers so you can talk to them keep in contact in what you want to know about blackberry. I find they are very quick in responding to questions or posts on their site they keep it very updated the most recent post was today. They are very friendly and cheerful when communicating to others. You can tweet to them directly and they find other posts about their company and re-tweet them for others to read.
In my opinion RIM:Blackberry Twitter page looks great and is easy to maneuver around it’s big and bold it get’s your attention. It makes you want to read more about them ask them questions and are always on top of thing’s like a company should be to keep their customers and followers happy and updated the newest and greatest products that are coming out. If they could put more into the company I think they could come out better and stronger than ever before.
I have found a blog on Cesar Millan the Dog Whisperer. It’s a show that is on televison that Cesar comes to help misbehavioral dogs or dogs that have bad habits they may have gotten from their owners or from bad past experiences. Cesar helps the owner’s as well as the dog so they can become one or in harmony so the dog and owner can be calm and submissive as well as being relaxed and not nervous about everything that is going to happen.
Cesar Millan The Dog Whisperer, is a business and televsion show on how to train your dog properly but not only the dog the owner as well so they can both live in harmony. They site itself is very detailed and organized. It teaches everyone what they can do with their pets to help them as well as owner’s to have a happy and healthier lives. They discuss many and interesting subjects to let you know when rabies day so you know when to get your dog’s shots and to take care of them. The blog itself is neat, organized, full of infromation that people will want or need to know on how to raise and take care of your dog or dog’s. The blog is updated regulary, spots for people to respond and get their relpies back. It has a profile, video’s and photo’s for fellow blogger’s to follow along with an be updated on what’s new and updated on his most latest adventure or case that is being worked on. In my own opinion the blog is very well organized easy to access and use. It’s well prepared and is has used it’s resources well and it’s advertising on the sides are interesting and stick out very well. The blog is through myspace which I find interesting. There is not much colour but it’s sweet and simple it’s not to in your face.
In my conlusion for this blog it’s very insightful, creative and full of information I would want to know about for my dog. I would come back to this blog again for more information and to see how more updated it has gotten from the last time I checked. I find it to be great for dog owner’s in helping them with their own dog’s and how to get help with training their dog’s as well as themselves so they can be in better harmony with each other.
My initial thoughts on social media and emerging technology is fun and exciting so far. It makes you learn about blogs and learn how to create them like what I am doing right now. I am enjoying it so far and it’s very interesting.
I am expecting to learn a lot from this course and how to blog , use twitter and many other exciting new and interesting social media. I might not know a lot about this course right now but I am hoping to learn a lot from this course and to get to know to use the blogging page more. I also like to meet knew people in this class as well as on the blogging page. I am hoping to it will be challenging and fun to attend for the semester.
I am hoping to come out of this class knowing a lot more about social media and emerging technology. I also want to become more knowledgeable from this course and what will come from it. I am excited and am having fun so far with enjoying this class and hope there will be more fun and exciting thing’s to come.
