* In #Banking, #Financial Services, #markets even online communities like #SeekingAlpha have their detractors: @seekingalphasuk (inactive)

* What’s the best way 2 increase ur fan base on facebook? Check @Trupanion’s #insurance blog http://bit.ly/bBcPBs #pets #contest #fun #pics

* @PlanBig wlcm 2 the #socialmedia space! Keen 2 see how ur community develop. Crowdsourcing is trendy, but what’s the Xtra REWARD 4 ur users?
->  @Visible_Banking thanks for the welcome. The extra reward is our focus on actual outcomes for our users, they can get the help they need (from @PlanBig)

* @Visible_Banking sorry i disagree. success lies in achieving/supporting strategic goals. it’s not about reward. that’s a tactic (from @cosmond)
-> 1st of all, what’s a fan in #banking or #insurance? “Success” in SM lies in ur ability 2 find the best way 2 REWARD ur users 4…
-> #socialmedia #success lies in ur ability 2 REWARD ur users 4 the time they spend visiting, contributing, promoting ur initiative…
-> 4 Key types of #REWARD in #socialmedia : 1. fun 2. contest 3. visibility 4. exclusive content (1&2 works better in B2C, 3&4 in B2B)
-> I agree w/U. Ideally, 1st ? companies should ask thmslvs is how they cld leverage socialmedia 2 achieve (which?) strategic goal(s)
-> @Visible_Banking good debating with you. i like your tweets. just wanted to pick up on this one (from @cosmond)

* @Visible_Banking i’d argue being hacked IS a big deal unless all DMs are deleted regularly. BOA asks customers submit identifiable info
-> @jason_dee agreed I made it clear on my blog #hacking isn’t a big deal as long as banks follow my advice http://bit.ly/2pppgI #7 is a bonus!
-> @Visible_Banking ah i see what you were saying. i read it literally. good advice. i would add very frequent deletion of DMs thru the day

* @PressRoom_BBVA U R following @BBVAservicios. Could U pls confirm it is 1 of #BBVA ‘s offical #twitter accounts? @joseantoniogall?
