Monday: Headlines

13 Aug

I volunteered to write an article for my sorority’s magazine, but I’m having major writer’s block! Any suggestions? While you think of some, here are today’s headlines.

Google to cut 4,000 jobs at Motorola

The Internet giant is trying to make the cell phone producer profitable again. What do you think of Google’s operation of Motorola? Can they save the company?

Olympics Generated 150 Million Tweets

Some of you may disagree, but I am sad to see the Olympics end. However, the 2012 London Olympics leave behind some amazing statistics, including this outstanding Twitter statistic: 150 million tweets! Did you send one of these tweets? What does this statistic tell us about the universal appeal of the Olympics?

What Type of Social Media Personality Are You?

Another great infographic from Mashable.com! I love the combination of personality tests with social media. It tells us a lot about our society and our fellow citizens. What was your personality type? Do you agree or disagree?


Alright I am headed back to my article. Feel free to share any additional Monday headlines…it will provide me an good distraction.

Tuesday: Tumblr

10 Jul

As I mentioned in my very first “Tuesday: Tumblr” post, I am a novice Tumblr user. But I am not alone. Tumblr is still very new to most people, and thus, we are learning about the social media site together. Therefore, I decided to share two useful articles regarding Tumblr.

The first article, “Tumblr Slang, Explained,” gives us an inside view into the world of Tumblr. The terms and their definitions are also somewhat humorous. For those of us still learning about Tumblr, this article will provide information about the appropriate terminology for the site as well as provide insight into the Tumblr community.

The next article is also from Mashable.com. “Should Your Small Business Join Tumblr?” helps social media managers and business owners way their options. Writer Christine Erickson does a wonderful job of providing pros and cons. It’s a good guide for those contemplating putting their business on Tumblr. Remember, just because a social media site is popular it does not mean your company should be on it. Articles like this one will help you decide where to invest your time when it comes to social media marketing.

I hope you find these articles helpful as you continue to learn more about Tumblr.

Will your company join Tumblr? How do you think Tumblr can assist your company in meeting its marketing goals?
