Twitter Most Germans had at least one Facebook, LinkedIn or Xing account. Twitter is not very popular in Germany.
Mixed Privacy Concerns Online and offline privacey is a key concern to German team members and customers. The team was torn about an example where a team member tells their supervisor that a colleague was posting negatively about the supervisor on Facebook. What do you already know about Germans and how they feel about privacy?
Facebook Frustration Many Germans are frustrated with the frequency of privacy changes on Facebook. Many have closed their account because of this. What do you think?
Xing costs money LinkedIn is preferred over Xing because there is a monthly fee to use the same functions on Xing.
Language Matters! German team members and customers strongly prefer to communicate in their local language. Social media pages should be in German.
BASF has it going on! BASF, a chemical company headquartered in Germany, does an excellent job reaching their audience with YouTube, Facebook, Flickr and Slideshare
Ownership of Content Germany has very specific rules around content ownership related to social media and contests that differs from the US
German Love Plants! During the Dell team’s tour, the American participants noticed several large potted plants outside most of the cubicles and break rooms. The Germans team members even had names for them.
…and David Hasselhoff German Team members confirmed that David Hasselhoff is still a country favorite and suggested that Dell use him to advertise for the company.
