Social Media Resources

A collection of helpful resources in the study of social media:

Inside Social Media (Podcast)

This is the show where you’ll learn secrets, insights and strategies from heads of social media from the most successful brands in the world.

Professor’s note — This is a great podcast.  In each episode Rick invites social media professionals from worldwide brands like Coca Cola, Ford, and others to discuss their social media strategies.  We will study several of these podcasts in class.


Mashable (Website)

Mashable is a global, multi-platform media and entertainment company.

Professor’s note — Mashable is a digital media company that now reports on a number of topics but made a name for itself reporting on social media trends.


Forbes Social Media News (Website)

Business and financial news.  Core topics include business, technology, stock markets, personal finance, and lifestyle.

Professor’s note — Forbes primarily sticks to the topics that relate to the use of social media for business, issues with social media and business ethics, and trends in business communications.
