In social networks the brand and how it's perceived, is open to public interpretation and potential misconception now more than ever.

The goal of a social media style is to establish:

What the brand represents in the social Web

Characteristics of Brand

Brand personality traits

Voice of the brand

Attributes and voice necessary at the representative level

Procedures and guidelines for representation, accountability, and workflow

Metrics for quantifying activity and the intended results

First of all you need to understand what it means by creating personas:-

It means understanding customers and asking detail questions about customers leading to greater understanding of each; to make self presentable as realistic you need to get to know customers more deeply which won't be possible in normal ways

When you become the persona you begin to think about the needs of the customers and find out ways in which you can serve them in the best possible manner. To fulfill the same you also need to formulate strategies to achieve the thought ideas.

By putting yourself in your persona's shoes and visualizing the interactions, you can identify problems and make changes.

What gets included in the profile of social media persona is as under:

Name of the person in complete characters and with real names

You should also include your snap in your profile.

Age, gender, and other key demographic information. If marital or parental status is important to you, or location, include those elements.

A description of the person. Even if your business is B2B, try to include personal details as well as professional information.

Social media use. Describe which social networks/tools the person uses, how frequently, and so on.

Be sure to include information about why this person uses social media: to keep connected, to gather information, for entertainment, for career or business purposes, etc. And, as described above, note how this customer wants to be perceived in different communities. You may even want to include a table showing the different communities this person is active in and different traits, goals, and personalities the person has in each.

A social media persona is

status seeker

Developing a profile involves collecting data, aggregating and analyzing it into profiles and maintaining the personas based on ongoing measurement and analysis.
