Are You Vulnerable To Social Media Threats?

Everyone is having their account on social media platforms for the public interactions. The social media platforms can cause damage sometimes if you are not attentive to your security. Surveys say that nearly one out of five Facebook accounts are hacked. Sometimes, it’s not just our mates playing harmless pranks either, with a significant proportion of respondents saying they’d had abusive messages, hoaxes, scams, or other offensive material posted from their account without their knowledge.

Here are the three questions that arise in everyone’s mind when it comes to online privacy?

  1. Who shares their social media posts with the world?

There are three most popular social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. 20% of people have a profile on Facebook and 10% don’t even know if their profile is private or public. 60% of us have profiles on Twitter and 15% don’t know if their profile is public or private. 47%people leave their Instagram profile on the public.

  1. How many people have had their account hacked?

You will get shocked to know that one in five (18%) know they’ve had their account hacked at least once. There is a huge amount of 54% harmful content have posted from the profiles getting hacked. Surveys show that in 43% cases friends are involved in hacking activities.

  1. Are we protecting our data from Spammers and Hackers?

You can protect your data by using private mode, erasing cookies, VPNs. Surveys prove that 4 out of 5 people have never used a VPN. 61% don’t even know about it. 23% of us have never erased cookies.

Today, if you are not promoting your brand on social media platforms, they are not well represented online. Ignoring social media can decrease your opportunity for interaction with customers, leaders, and marketers, which costs you engagement and web traffic as a whole. In 2014, 92% of marketers claimed that social media marketing was important for their business. 80% of the marketers indicated that their efforts increased traffic to their website.

Here are the main three social media marketing skills that are required in today’s market.

1. Creativity: One of the most critical aspects of social media marketing is creativity. Studies show 21% of social media users unfollow a brand if the content shared is not engaging. To keep your followers attached, marketers will need to find new and engaging ideas every time, creative initiatives, and campaigns. From Facebook contest to viral videos, social media marketers will need to think of innovative ways to stand apart from the millions of others on social media.

2. Content Curation: Content curation plays an important role in social media marketing for the business that does not create new content each time. Content curation tells you when to share, what to share and how to share. It is important that your content is related to the customer so that they give time in reading them.

3. Writing: From creating the Facebook post to crafting your tweet, writing stands as an essential part of a social media marketer’s job profile. If headlines aren’t magnetic or captivating enough, then you can never motivate people to read the article. Social media marketers need to be able to write web content that is easy to skim and visually appealing with headlines, shorter paragraphs, and bullets for increasing the customer engagements.

You can improve your social media marketing skills with the uCertify study guide on CIW Social Media Strategist certification. This will help you enhance your skills and enhance your career prospects.  Do not forget to check out the Presidents’ Day sale going on and avail 20% discount on all the courses.
