Social Media Notes
Here’s this week’s round-up of social media (& sometimes tech) news. Come back weekly for what I hope to be a fun & informative blog post on social stories that caught my eye throughout the week!
- Twitter struck a big deal with the NFL this week – announcing it will stream Thursday night football games live on the social networking site. It’s free, and you don’t need to be logged in to view it online. “Twitter is where live events unfold and is the right partner for the NFL as we take the latest step in serving fans around the world live NFL football,” the NFL said.
- This move is being called one of ‘most seismic shifts in recent media history‘ – with some suggesting this move marks ‘the beginning of the end’ for traditional media as technology ‘quickly rendering the decades-old broadcast paradigm obsolete.’
- And more about Instagram influence: the impact of ‘influencers” social media posts – great example: “Last summer, Morse posted a cinnamon bun from Ye Olde Bakery in Southampton, N.Y. The next day, “they were sold out by 10 in the morning,” she said. “They’d never experienced anything like it.””
