Social Media Cheat Sheet

  • Apr 9, 2010
If social media were a subject in school (which I wouldn't be surprised if it is someday.  Actually, it might already be), then students would be thanking their lucky stars for a chart like this Guide to the Social Landscape by  @adrielhampton tweeted this out a couple of months ago and I thought it was so cool that I had to bookmark it.  Think of it as Cliffnotes for social media marketing.

In a very organized fashion, it lists 10 of the most popular social media sites, including twitter, Facebook, flickr and YouTube, and then tells you how to leverage your use of each of them by writing about them in four categories: Customer Communication, Brand Exposure, Traffic to Your Site and SEO.  Not only that, but it color codes each explanation as green, yellow and red, which signify Good, Ok, and Bad!, respectively and gives tips.

I recommend this chart for people who are into social media marketing or just curious about it.  Looks like Yahoo! is at the bottom of the barrel of this list, while Digg comes out on top as being most useful across all categories.

On a side note, this chart plays visual tricks on you by making dots appear in between the boxes.  But I digress.  The social media geek in me just kinda wants print this out and tack it on my wall (at least while it's relevant for the next few months since social media is ever evolving!).

Sharrie make a good point...maybe Lunch will make the Top Ten eventually. If Yahoo is on there, Lunch can't be far behind. It will be interesting to see how these social networks eventually blend together or fall away.

I keep forgetting this, but Lunch is still a baby. Almost a year old! And yes, I'm a social media fiend, so I love watching these trends, too. Thanks for your comment, John! :)
