Chuck Hemann, Head of Analytics at W2O Group, joins the Social Pros Podcast to discuss the current state of social analytics and where it is heading.
The Evolution of Social Analytics
Nothing is stationary. Life is constantly flowing, changing, progressing, and evolving. Even the solid ground beneath your feet is hurdling at great speed around the sun, which is, in turn, making its way around the center of the Milky Way, which is itself part of the ever-expanding sea that is the universe.
The point here is that absolutely nothing will stay the same forever. That’s the mindset of Chuck Hemann of W2O Group when it comes to social analytics and data. Social analytics have changed as social itself has grown, but Chuck foresees a time in the near future when social data may not be as free-flowing as it once was.
This is not to say that social data is irrelevant, but as data collection and sharing evolves, it is crucial that social media practitioners allow themselves to evolve as well. It is, unfortunately, no time to settle in or get comfortable. Through creativity and adaptation, your business can continue to grow and thrive.
In This Episode
- Why it is becoming more important to combine social data with other data sources.
- Why a Twitter-centric approach to data listening can mislead you.
- How to expand the scope of your data as a social media practitioner.
- How strategy and analytics roles are blending.
