Social Chatter: Social Media Marketing Talk Show - Episode 296 Facebook Live Audio Rooms, Audio-Only Conversations This week, we have Facebook Live Audio Rooms. Audio Rooms are a new feature that Mark Zuckerberg demoed. They function very similarly to Twitter Spaces, in that you'll be able to join or host audio-only rooms from Facebook, and still be able to browse through your News Feed, while listening to audio. For now, Facebook Live Audio Rooms will only be available for Profiles and only through the Facebook mobile app. We anticipate they will expand to Pages and Groups at some point, once they are rolled out to everyone. For now, they were shown as a demo. We anticipate that they will be rolled out globally very soon. Coming soon, #Facebook Live Audio Rooms, a #Twitter Spaces and Clubhouse competitor. In the meantime, here's a taste. 🔥🔥🔥#SocialChatter #SocialMedia #SocialMediaNews #FacebookNews https://t.co/y5QGrlf6eN— Social Chefs (@socialchefs) June 16, 2021 Why Facebook Live Audio Rooms Matter For Your Business Audio Rooms aren't available yet; however, your business can start planning ahead. While we anticipate that Clubhouse will see a drastic reduction in active users, if you're a business, and you don't yet use audio rooms, now is a good time to practice with Clubhouse. You can start to train your customers to get used to audio-only rooms. This way, when Facebook Live Audio Rooms officially launch, you'll have already conditioned your customers to being in this type of space. As a business, you can also begin to test out different types of content to see what works and doesn't work with this medium. Other Social Media News Mentioned Here are some additional social media news topics that we covered on our weekly live social media marketing talk show that are worth checking out. Facebook Messenger is adding QR codes, payment links and new themes in a new update. LinkedIn published tips to help your business grow its Company Page following. Twitter is testing a newsletter subscription feature. You can control Twitter mentions with a new snooze feature. How to Use LinkedIn Video to Grow Your Business This week, we talked with Viveka Von Rosen-Martin about leveraging video, specifically, LinkedIn video products, to help you grow your business. Here are the tips that she shared about this topic. How can you use video on LinkedIn to create a stronger brand? Businesses should be tapping into all of the new video features that LinkedIn recently tolled out. These include video cover stories on your Profile, native video, along with a new featured video secontion. How can you use video to build your business? LinkedIn Live and video messaging are two features that you can leverage in your business to engage more with your customers. On LinkedIn Live, you can use this as an opportunity to get to know your customers through live video. Another way you can use video to get to delight your customers is instead of sending them text messages, why not record video messages for them? This will be a surprise, and opens up a new medium for them to see you and get to connect with you on a deeper level. Tool of the Week 101 Ways to Rock LinkedIn This week, we talked about a book, 101 Ways to Rock LinkedIn. This book, by Viveka Von Rosen-Martin, helps you identify ways to get more out of LinkedIn, beyond just using it to find a job, or to post your career highlights. Vivek's book is available through Kindle Unlimited, or you can purchase it digital format for $5, or as a paperback for $12.95. Her book, 101 Ways to Rock LinkedIn, can also provide you with tactics and techniques, that you can apply not just to LinkedIn, but also Facebook and other social media platforms.
