Here is what I am reading today:
“Members of the PR industry must be easing off their caffeine addictions. The third-annual Dunkin’ Donuts and CareerBuilder study found that public relations is now the fourth-most caffeinated profession. Last year, it was No. 2.
No. 1 is food preparation/service work, followed by scientist (No. 2) and sales representative (No. 3). Editors/writers/media workers ranked sixth. “
“So you’ve have a web and social media presence, your business is well known and you’re thinking of expanding your presence. A great way to further your company profile (and provides you with an invaluable way of networking) is to attend, or better yet, organise some events.
To do this properly, however, requires you to do some advanced preparation, especially if you’re the one organising. Thankfully, networking and meeting new people is easier than ever and the pressure of organising and promoting an event has lessened thanks to a number of free and paid options available. Whatever you’re creating an event or just attending, here are a list of things you should consider.”
“InSites Consulting is publishing the third edition of its study “Social Media around the world” in collaboration with data and sampling partner SSI and translation agency No Problem!. More than 7,800 respondents from nineteen different countries took part in the new survey and this article presents the study’s ten most striking conclusions. The entire study can be downloaded free of charge via SlideShare.”
“Instagram is a free mobile photo-sharing app with 80 million users and counting. It has seen many changes lately . Instagram was acquired by Facebook in April 2012, launched a redesign on iOS that includes a new “Explore” tab and is rumored to be developing a web presence (so that users can see photos online, not just on the mobile app).”
“Have you noticed how much Facebook has changed over the last couple of years, and has become a shadow of its previous self. While it used to be all about seeing what your friends and family were up to, the feed has changed into a massive stream of info, news content, ads and other content to the point where we wonder why we still use the service today.”
