You’ve started a Facebook page for your publication. You tweet several times a day. You’re even hawking stories over on Google Plus now. But that’s not enough for you. If you’re like me, the tools and metrics you use to connect with your audience through the major social media services aren’t enough. A social media wish list for news publishers
Facebook: a Harvard-only social networking site gone global with more than 750 million active users to date. Twitter: what was once envisioned to be a podcasting platform that now boasts over 360 million tweeters. The social media tools we use daily have highly evolved since their heydays and have garnered our undivided attention. How people digest news and information is changing. Take Hurricane Irene, for example. Her wrath was felt more in the Twitterverse than it was on our actual universe.

Public Relations Matters As I sat there in the pre-dawn hours at my in-laws’ home in Biloxi, sipping my coffee in the dark, listening to nearly a dozen relatives snoring (mostly) quietly, I began to reflect on Thanksgiving and what it means to me.

Digital Era Leadership: The Role of Business Schools - Social Media in Organizations (SMinOrgs) Community This post is intended to start a dialogue about the role business schools should play in fostering Digital Era leadership.

It offers suggestions for changes to both curriculum and pedagogy and provides recommendations for business school leaders. Although focused on business schools, it can promote similar dialogues for professionals in non-business fields, through the application and extension of comparable ideas with respect to schools of public health, social work, education, public administration, etc.
There’s been a lot of discussion lately about the end of the destination web. I think we are a long way off of the “end”, and brand websites and microsites will still have a key role in most marketing plans for some time to come. After all, millions of people are still visiting these sites. However there is a definite trend away from destination websites that has major implications for brands and agencies.

Despite the unprecedented level of data about what news people consume online and how they consume it, understanding these new metrics has often proven elusive. The statistics are complicated, sometimes contradictory, and often introduce new information whose meaning is not clear. To shed more light on Web news behavior, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism has conducted an in-depth study of detailed audience statistics from the Nielsen Company. The study examines the top 25 news websites in popularity in the United States, delving deeply into four main areas of audience behavior: how users get to the top news sites; how long they stay during each visit; how deep they go into a site; and where they go when they leave.
The End of the Destination Web and the Revival of the Information Economy Brian Solis inShare639 In recent weeks journalism and the future of all media have once again gone under the knife. Experts on either side of new media debated whether or not Twitter’s CNN moment truly was indicative of the future of journalism.
