You’ve created a profile on Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn – or all of them.
Maybe you’ve even started posting.
But you have this sneaking suspicion that you just don’t fit in.
Well, get this: The social media world isn’t like junior high.
You WILL be accepted, but you need to know how to speak the language.
The Social Media Strategy That Works
Here are some of the acronyms and abbreviations you’ll be glad you know how to use them yourself, and understand when you see them in articles and posts.
A “direct message” that only you and the recipient can see.
A “modified “tweet.” This is the name for resharing a tweet that you’ve changed in some way. For example, you might need to shorten the text to fit in a URL.
A “private message” is also not visible to the entire social media universe, and can include a direct message. Generally, this is any kind of one-on-one message that takes place.
A “retweet” happens when you publish someone else’s Tweet without modifying any of the text.
“Business to business,” or when one company sells to another.
“Business to consumer,” or when one company sells to individual consumers.
An abbreviation for social media “community manager.” This person acts as an ambassador for their brand, listening to social conversations and connecting with users to promote the company.
A “content management system,” which is a tool that helps you with scheduling, editing or publishing content on the internet.
