Google+ Hangout: What Does The Data Tell You?

Google+ Hangout: What Does The Data Tell You? Kevin Shively Blogger Extraordinaire Simply Measured

This week, James Dearsley, Founder of the Digital Marketing Bureau, invited me to join him on his What Does the Data Tell You? show. The show, which takes place as a public Google+ hangout, focuses on various case studies and types of social media analysis.

It was a great conversation that walked through a case study of Coca-Cola and how they’ve been using social during the World Cup. James and I took a look at a Simply Measured Twitter account report, Instagram report, and Tumblr report to identify some of the tactics, lessons, and successes that showcase the data.

James gets as excited about analysis as I do, so the quick look through these reports highlighted the type of insight anyone can gain from their social media data. I walked through a few of the key components, and James added his perspective from working with clients to analyze data and develop social media programs.
