I find myself working now in “social media”, and as such, I’m reading a range of blogs that I haven’t been reading before. Here are a few quick links on the topic that I’ve been wanting to refer back to.
In case you’re wondering, “social media” covers using internet tools like facebook, twitter, youtube, myspace, blogs, and forums to build online communities: people who have a relationship that’s facilitated by the internet, who don’t necessarily know each other from anywhere else.
Working in this space for a company has its own challenges: figuring out how best people can engage with that company, and even what a given company can best achieve using social media. It’s been interesting so far, and I’m looking forward to some more challenges.
