A young Nigerian social media aficionado, Oluwatobi Soyombo is set to help unleash the power of social media in helping various segments of society achieve their objectives. He calls his initiative Social Meep (SocialMeep.com).
Set to be launched on 3rd October, 2012, SocialMeep.com would be a one-stop destination for social media content. Soyombo believes that even though the world is gradually experiencing the power of social media in areas as diverse as crowd sourcing for funds to driving revolutions in countries, a critical mass of people are yet to tap into this underlying power.
“Social Media knowledge is power and that is why we are launching SocialMeep to educate people on how to effectively and efficiently utilize ‘social’ for the achievement of their goals. In this age of ours, virtually everyone can achieve incredible results just by being more social,” Soyombo said in a statement.
Asked how SocialMeep would be different from other blogs and tech sites, Soyombo said that the site would “focus strictly on Social Media content. Our question is a simple one, How can individuals, businesses and even governments leverage social avenues to foster the achievement of their respective objectives? What tools can they use to drive efficient results and how can these tools be judiciously utilized?”
SocialMeep will feature contents from various contributors sharing nuggets, tips, how-tos on Social Recruitment, Online Reputation Management and the like.
Justifying the need for SocialMeep, Oluwatobi said “People ask me funny questions like ‘How can I twitter?’ Questions like this reveals an increasing demand for Social Media contents especially in this corner of the world. SocialMeep’s approach is to provide these contents in useful and easily understandable formats. We want the average ‘joe’ to visit socialmeep.com and find our contents useful.”
On his part, Segun Akiode, who is a SocialMeep contributor said “It’s going to be a lot of work since ‘so far, none of such exist in Nigeria’ (or say, I don’t know any). We would sure set a great pace for this no doubt. I’m excited to be part of this pioneering initiative.”
On its launch date, which is today, Wednesday, 3rd October, 2012, SocialMeep.com will feature an interview with an 18 year old Nigerian who makes $3,000+ blogging/freelancing. “We’ll be going live with an exclusive interview with an 18 year old guy who currently earns over $3,000 per month in the blogosphere. His story is a unique one with lots of lessons to learn from his journey.” says Oluwatobi. “He talked to us about his journey and how others can replicate his success.” Oluwatobi added.
