Social Media and Behaviour Change: Applying Theory

chinwag psych 9th may header

smbbb

Understanding why people behave the way they do, and designing interventions and communications to elicit new, more positive behaviours is an established discipline - but using social media as part of the mix is relatively new.

I’m convinced it has the potential to be hugely effective, because our behaviour is often defined by our interpersonal relationships and our perception of social norms - both things that are an inherent part of the social web.

From a research perspective, the massive volume of personal and conversation data we publish to the web everyday also gives us a gold mine of information that can help us understand individual’s online behaviours and attitudes - more quickly and at a lower cost than traditional research methods.

Chinwag Insight: Psychology of Online Influence Presentation Slides Are Now Live #ChinwagPsych

Psychology of Online Influence Brochure
Thank you to all that attended the long awaited Chinwag Insight: Psychology of Online Influence conference yesterday.

The afternoon was jam-packed with brain-busting insight from some of the leading experts from both academic and marketing worlds, bringing together theory and practice to build on the debate from the first event that took place during Social Media Week London in February.

Amongst the sea of information, here's a few of our favourite pointers on tackling online influence:

  • 1. Know your target, 2. Communicate persuasively, 3. Sell with integrity.
  • Relate to what bonds people and drives them to share: shared history, attitudes, society and culture.
  • Identify the 5 types of influencers: idea starters, amplifiers, curators, commentators and viewers
  • Provide 'social validation': ratings, reviews and pictures bump up effectiveness by 20%
