We’ve taken some time off from our Links of the Week posts, but here are some good posts we’ve read recently around the journo/social media blogosphere. Enjoy:
- We’re strong believers that real-life events and tweetups for your news organization can really help your reporters and editors get face time with your digital readers. If you didn’t believe us before, check out this Mashable article that lists three ways live events will improve your online communities.
- Brian Solis recently wrote about how brands — in their efforts to become more relevant and top-of-mind — must become more like true media. This concept certainly isn’t new, but he lays it out pretty well in this post.
- Are you considering a jump to new media from your “old media” organization? Business Insider compiled this list of 25 people who have done just that.
- Don’t know what a social media editor is? Read this post on 10,000 Words. (Note: OMNT’s very own Robert Quigley contributed to this one.)
- iPad-related stories were hot this week. (Obviously.) Here’s one from the Nieman Journalism Lab about some interesting ad spots on the Wall Street Journal‘s iPad application, and a ValleyWag rundown of some of the different iPad news applications in the market today.
- We’ve written several times on the importance of search engine optimization (SEO) and news blogging. Jason Falls wrote a good intro to SEO for bloggers on his blog, Social Media Explorer.
