Last summer I did research for my independent study project in graduate school that resulted in “ The Use of Social Media in Higher Education for Marketing and Communication: A Guide for Professionals in Higher Education. ” The research was largely done in June and July 2008.
Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin has officially joined the ranks of Twitter addicts. The Alaska governor has so far amassed 12,096 followers (as of this writing).
From entire conferences to unconferences to new government appointees to full-scale social networks , there’s no doubt that “Government 2.0″ has become the latest and greatest buzzword. Agencies and departments from across the government are jumping on board, starting their own blogs, creating YouTube channels, and tweeting their days away. It’s also been grabbing all the headlines – in the New York Times , the Wall Street Journal , Wired , and myriad others.
About one month ago I decided to put some effort into becoming a Twitter devote and, sometimes even a fanatic. Given the buzz about this tool for social media, I thought it was a worthwhile endeavor and a chance to see what all this is about. Our Chief Content Officer, Ann Handley ( @marketingprofs ), has also been gently pushing me to give it the college try. As anybody who read my last post on this subject , I’m not too optimistic about a business model here, but that’s not the point of this current post.

Jason Falls I’ve long been of the belief that the vast majority of social media thinkers and doers easily lapse into the self-gratifying bubble that is our little online world and forgets the primary audience to which we should speak lies not on Twitter or Facebook or blogs.

A bungee jumping, scuba diving British charity worker has been named as the winner of what has been dubbed the “Best Job in the World”. Ben Southall, 34, of Petersfield, beat nearly 35,000 applicants from around the world for the six-month dream assignment, a £73,400 contract to serve as the caretaker of a tropical Australian island.

Generation Y is a kind generation . Our conservative lifestyles and penchants for quiet opinions have led us to work together happily with healthy doses of idealism. We are a teamwork generation, fully in line with each other. Top-down management and the clutch of hierarchal authority no longer illustrate the strokes of success, but instead lead to siloed rows of depressed employees and opportunistic managers. Gen Y, in contrast, is all about the team , preferring conformity inside the lines over pushing boundaries or ourselves. “In many respects,” psychology expert Jeremy Dean argues , “[these] norms have a beneficial effect, bolstering society’s foundations and keeping it from falling into chaos.”
Did you know that as of right now, Twitter doesn’t have the trademark for the word “tweet?” That’s all about to change, however, as the social media service is about to secure the trademark from its current owner – Twittad. Twittad is a company that users a network of thousands of Twitter users to tweet out advertisements from other companies – twitter ad middlemen in short.
