On January 30th, I’m speaking at the Social Media for Nonprofits in New York City. (You can get a discount of $20 off the registration by entering the code “Beth” when you sign up). This year, since content curation, is a social media competency that I’m focusing in my own learning and teaching , I’ll be doing a conversational presentation on the topic. Robin Good, one of the best content curators on the planet, will join me via skype from Italy. In preparation, I’m doing a pre-recorded skype interview with Robin as a back up for a live interview. As is my presenting style, this will be an interactive session.
Every morning starts the same way for me, I roll over and check Twitter on my iPhone.
I check Twitter before I check my email, my text messages, or even get out of bed. My wife has even threatened to start her own Twitter account to remind me to take out the trash. I read all the news from the 170 or so people I follow and then I read every single thing y'all send my way. (Every morning for 786 consecutive days an Alabama fan has accused me of being gay).
I’ve worked as a blogger for over five years and I’ve watched as well-intentioned PR professionals and companies struggle to meet the needs of new media journalists. They’re not sure what to do with us or how to speak our language. “Do we seat them with the traditional press? Why are they texting on their phones during a press conference? What’s a hashtag?” seems to be common refrain.
