SEO and Social Media actions produce different outcomes. But they do have the same goal, and that is to drive website traffic and conversion.

The thing is, they both have vacancies. Surprisingly, they simply fill-in what’s lacking on the other. Let’s find out how their differences allow them to address their purpose.

4 Differences Between SEO and Social Media in Driving Website Traffic

1. Audience Targeting and Conversion

Social Media directly captures an audience initially through their specific pain points, which is the strongest and most catchy emotion. Apparently, social media audiences are deeply emotional because they’re on a personal level, rather than business-like. The secondary goal is to target people based on their demographics, geographic location, and, most importantly, their interests. It requires creative content to drive traffic efficiently. Social media audience targeting requires you to present the content even if they’re not searching for it. And you need

Social media companies should focus more on internet safety: Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella

Microsoft Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Satya Nadella has said social media companies should pay more attention to internet safety.

Nadella said Microsoft would have applied some of its experience in internet safety to ByteDance’s video-sharing app TikTok, The Wall Street Journal reported.

“What needs to happen is real reform in social media where internet safety is a top consideration,” Nadella was quoted as saying by WSJ. Microsoft recently made an unsuccessful bid to invest in TikTok’s US business.

TikTok, which was banned by India in June, has faced increased scrutiny over privacy and safety of user data.

Chief Executive Satya Nadella said that internet safety should be a greater focus for social-media companies and that the software company would have applied some of its experience in that area to video-sharing app TikTok.

“What needs to happen is real reform in social media where internet safety is a top consideration,” Mr. Nadella said Tuesday at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council.

Microsoft during the summer made an unsuccessful bid to buy parts of TikTok and address what the U.S. said were national-security concerns about the app’s ties to China. The Redmond, Wash.-based company withdrew from the running after the Chinese government imposed export restrictions on the kind of software TikTok uses, leaving Microsoft’s cloud-computing rival

Oracle Corp.

in pole position to partner with the app.

Mr. Nadella said TikTok approached Microsoft because it required help dealing with the U.S. government’s concerns.

  • “There are definitely foreign adversaries who are trying to use the platforms, or platforms like Instagram, to their own end,” Mosseri said. “We think of the election here in the US in 2020 as a huge test, not only for Instagram and Facebook, but for the industry at large.”
  • Mosseri oversaw Facebook’s News Feed during the 2016 election when Russia-linked agents spread disinformation on social media that reached millions of people, particularly on Facebook. 
  • It was a learning moment for Facebook, Mosseri said, noting that it took Facebook too long to “focus on the negative that can come from connecting so many people at scale.”

A new paper in the Journal of the European Economic Association, published by Oxford University Press, explores the connection between social media and hate crimes. The researchers combined methods from applied microeconomics with text analysis tools to investigate how negative rhetoric about refugees on social media may have contributed to hate crimes against refugees in Germany between 2015 and 2017.


Observers all over the globe have scrutinized social media increasingly over the last few years. News reports often suggest a relationship between fake news, social media “echo chambers,” and online “bot armies” with real-life outcomes. But despite the public interest and demands for policy action, there is little evidence about the relationship between social media content and offline behavior.

In Germany social media is among the main news sources of 18 to 25-year-olds. In the United States, around half of all adults use social media to

Beaumont ISD Police are investigating after a number of threats were sent to a teacher through anonymous Facebook accounts demanding them to “stop sending work.”

BISD spokesperson Hannah LeTulle confirmed that the district was investigating the matter, but did not provide additional details.

“The district takes any and all threats seriously and is doing so in this situation,” LeTulle said in a statement to The Enterprise, “The matter is under current investigation with the BISD Police Department.”

The messages were sent from at least three separate accounts with fake names including a character from the cartoon “Naruto,” and another with a phrase tied the hacking activist group Anonymous.

None of the accounts had profile pictures or “about” information prior to their deactivation.
