I am week 10 tired on a week 7 Thursday. Not a good sign.
However, it turns out not everyone feels that way, so I was able to find some great content to share with you this week. For students, you’re going to pick one to respond to on your own blog and for my regular visitors, these are definitely worth a read. Enjoy!
“It’s OK to be imperfect”: One School’s Quest for Social Media Success: Oregon State is doing some great stuff with social media. This article talks about the ups and downs, ins and outs and lessons learned along the way.
Five Steps to Social Currency: This post from one of the students in my Strategic Social Media class discusses a recent report that focused on the “social currency” of brands. Interesting concept and really interesting data.
PR Customer Service Merger Accelerating: This process is fascinating to me (mostly because I’m watching my career come full circle from doing customer service before I went back to college). And Todd’s list looks a lot like my to do list in a given day.
Get Real About Media Relations: Pitching media is not my favorite part of my job, but I recognize the importance of the process and of doing it right. This is a nice reminder from Kevin at Bad Pitch Blog about just that.
Facebook Facts You May Not Have Known: I love infographics. Love them. This is a good one and I learned some stuff.
Helping Others (Well, Students) For HAPPO: If you haven’t caught onto some of what’s possible with the interwebz, this is a great example. Jeremy Pepper lays it down in his blog and highlights a handful of students, including our own Marcella Lentini in this post.
7 Ways a College Student Can Start Becoming a Professional Now: Great tips! I found this post by David Spinks thanks to Karen Russell. Looks like a great resource for young professionals.
