Link roundup 1/29/12

30 Jan

These are the important social media articles I found this week that you should pay attention to. Please read at least a few of them, as they will probably make an appearance on the next quiz:

  • Great examples of brands using Instagram to tell their story. These would make good case study projects.
  • Are any of you hoping to become community managers after you graduate? Some new info on the role of community managers.
  • More brands being awesome on Pinterest. Clothing stores are a natural fit (Gap, Nordstrom) but I’m glad they also highlight other retailers like West Elm, and unexpected brands like Whole Foods and Travel Channel.
  • Sam Adams is crowdsourcing a limited-edition beer, and at least one blogger thinks it’s a terrible idea. What do you think?
  • This is a good (though oversimplified) breakdown of some popular social media platforms if you aren’t familiar with them.
  • Brands may be pushed to Timeline layout on Facebook on or after February 29th.
