- Attention! Military bloggers were among the earliest in on that social media trend, but faced resistance from top brass. Not anymore. Read about a recent "milbloggers" conference.
- Whose copyright? If you post photos and other content without thinking too much about copyright, this article about aggressive copyright enforcements might make you rethink that tactic.
- The buck stops here: Terry Heaton makes the case that social channels at news organizations ought to be run by news directors, not interns. Does his argument suggest a similar change in your communications or media relations operation? A smart read for communications directors, and important for your media relations folks to know about the news organizations they work with.
- Cause and effect: The Causes app on Facebook started as a way for nonprofits to build Facebook pages that allowed online donations. Now any page owner can just add a Causes tab to its page, meaning your company or organization can give page space to a pet cause or charity you wish to support--and change it up from time to time.
- Insider photos? Now your company or organization can let people searching Google peek inside your buildings with Google Business Photos. And while coverage so far has emphasized restaurants and similar businesses, I think universities, nonprofits and companies have plenty they can share here.
Barely time to "favorite" extra reads this week, for me. What looked good to you on Twitter?
