Happy Friday! Here is my weekly round up of comms news curated via @CisionUK.
“Have you noticed that there have been recent changes made to Facebook that make it even easier for you to connect with your customers? It’s not just a way to check in on what old school friends are up to after all, but a valuable business tool, too. “
“App.net was launched last month as a Twitter-like social network but one that is ad-free and fully open to developers to create apps. You can see the global feed of all conversations taking place on App.net at this link.”
“Since removing its live stream content on professional social networking site, LinkedIn, in June Twitter has since staged a further crack down on data sharing blocking Instagram, Facebook’s smartphone camera app, and Tumblr from utilising its members.”
“We thought it would be good to go back to basics and then expand on each of the steps below in future posts. Hopefully this will give you a good overview of what to consider as your communications team integrates social media further into your PR planning and engagement.”
“I took up the challenge to show this journalist why Twitter is valuable. I have said often that Twitter is the most useful tool developed for journalists in my 41-year career, with the possible exception of the cellphone (which you can use to tweet and read tweets, so they add to each other’s value).”
