Who’s winning the social media battle in the semiconductor industry?

Issue 5 | Spring 2018

Introduction This is our fifth annual analysis of social media practices and activities within the semiconductor industry. This year we’ve evolved the format and methodology to make it more relevant and informative. One of the biggest changes to this year’s report is the channels we have analyzed. We have noted a gradual decline of companies using Google +. In 2017, 43% of the companies in this report did not post anything on the channel. This drop in usage and engagement on the platform means that we will no longer report on Google+. By contrast, since it started in 2010 primarily as an iOS application. Instagram now has over 500 million active users and has become one of the top social media channels for engagement. We will be delving into Instagram and evaluate how semiconductor companies are using this channel. From a PR perspective, social media may be a means of getting news stories seen by more people, or reaching online influencers that are otherwise difficult to engage with. Social media can be used for thought leadership too, by carefully curating industry news and 3rd party stories alongside company owned content. Social media also has SEO value, though maybe not in they way you’d expect. Tweets and posts are transient, and Google attributes a low SEO score to each, but they can appear in Google search results, albeit for a finite time. This usually occurs when public interest, time-sensitive content is trending. Although individual posts and tweets have little SEO value, the profile page itself does. We have seen several examples of a company’s or an individual’s Twitter page ranking highly for niche search terms. Social media also has a knock-on effect on SEO. By driving additional visitors to a web page, either via social media or through other marcomms activities, there are increased chances of the page being shared across other channels, thereby increasing the number of inbound links, and increasing the SEO value of this page. That said, it is rare for semiconductor businesses to derive more than 2% of their web traffic from social media. As always, the main question is: what value does social media bring to my business?

Social media metrics The research in this year’s social success white paper covers activities from January 2017 to January 2018. We have evolved the format of our ranking system to create an accurate understanding of the overall engagement across multiple channels. The system allocates rank based on the activities of each company for each of the social channels analyzed. The new methodology uses both quantitative and qualitative metrics - number of followers, posts, as well as engagement per post, per audience size. This methodology was created to prevent extreme cases of skewing the results. For example,  a channel being top simply for having the largest number of followers; conversely for having a very low number of followers (thereby achieving high audience engagement). We reference a company’s follower count in the scoring tables but these numbers are balanced by engagement figures. This scoring system rewards quality over quantity, following the mantra delivered by Jay Baer:

• Conversation rate: This is simply the number of conversations per social media post. On Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, this would be comments. On Twitter, it’s replies. • Amplification rate: The average number of re-shares or retweets for each post. • Applause rate: The various ways a user can promote a post on different networks — Retweets, Likes, +1s, etc. • Economic value: The sum of short-term revenue, long- term revenue, and cost savings.

Methodology To calculate the rankings we assigned each of the 38 companies a score from 1 – 38, 1 being the top performer. Bulleted below are the categories we’ve based the rankings on:

Quantitative measures • Number of posts • Number of followers

Qualitative measures

“The end goal is action, not eyeballs.” 
 Baer’s approach to social media measurements groups the various elements into four parts: 


1. C  onsumption metrics: How many people viewed, downloaded, or listened to this piece of content? 2. Sharing metrics: How resonant is this content, and how often is it shared with others? 3. Lead generation metrics: How often does content consumption result in a lead? 4. S  ales metrics: Did we actually make any money from this content?

Without direct access to a company’s lead generation or sales metrics,
we have to focus on the first two – consumption metrics and sharing metrics. 


• Engagement per post (Amplification rate + Applause rate + Conversation rate) • Active audience = (Engagement per Post / Followers) x 100% We calculated a company’s scores for each of these results, then took an average of these four categories to create a ranking for each company. For LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube we use the following formula: Ranking of Posts+Followers+Engagement per post +Active Audience 4 For blog posts, we are unable to determine the number of followers (or in this instance, the number of return visitors) to a blog, and so exclude this metric from the equation. Our formula is therefore: Ranking of Posts+Shares+Shares per post

Avinash Kaushik, the analytics guru, proposes a similar theory of engagement, breaking metrics into four parts that can be applied across all social networks: 


4

3 The resultant number gives us the overall activity score and determines the ranking for each semiconductor company in that table. An average of ranking in each channel is then taken to calculate positions in the final table. The lower the number, the higher the ranking of the company.

Key Findings

72.93%

Followers

13.13%

The 38 semiconductor companies researched have over 70 million followers over the five social media channels analyzed in this report. This has risen by 48% since the 2017 report.

3.87%

Facebook dominates the audience figures with 72.93% of all followers, up from 65% last year. This is impressive, as it shows that even with Facebook changing the way publisher content is shown, it is still the biggest platform for targeting an engineering audience.

Engagement Overall engagement levels across the social channels has increased slightly from last year. In its first year in the report Instagram has come out on top for engagement. Instagram leads because of its ease of use, its mobile user experience and also its visual nature. This is reflected in the results this year.

Blogging Blogs and forums are a great way to generate fresh, keyword-rich content to help with search engine optimization and social media activities. The benefits are numerous. By defining a well-structured architecture, usually defined around key products and technologies, content is generated around relevant search terms and cross-linked back to key landing pages within a website. With a forum, companies are leveraging the power of user-generated content, and whilst engineers aren’t traditionally known for being active on companyrun forums, the maker community certainly is, and many companies are taking advantage of this newer, more socially active audience.

Length of a blog post / Number of shares 261

Blog post shares by social network Each blog post created by semiconductor companies is shared an average of 189 times.

For the second year running, NVIDIA had the most blog post shares this year with 24.13% of total shares.

Which day of the week is best for posting a blog post? Posting on a Wednesday generates 35% of shares compared to the next most popular days of the week - Monday and Tuesday with 18% and 22% of shares respectively.

Average shares by network Blog analysis: what content gets shared, where, and when? We analyzed 3,469 blog posts published by semiconductor companies in 2017 and early 2018 to answer these questions. Supporting earlier findings, where Facebook has the largest audience and a highly engaged community,
our analysis of where blog posts are shared shows that Facebook gets 52.3% of the total shares.

Who’s winning the social media battle in the semiconductor industry?

Facebook The biggest change to affect Facebook publishers in 2017 was an algorithmic one: 1. Longer videos with higher completion rates and authentic posts are ranked more highly on the newsfeed. 2. Timely posts are prioritized on the Facebook newsfeed. The change was designed to retain and encourage 1.65 billion users to come back to the platform. For every visit, Facebook gets another fraction of a cent in advertising revenue. The changes mean that users will see more updates from friends and relatives, and fewer articles and information directly posted by brands and publishers. Brands now need to pay more to target Facebook users.
