Social Media in Higher Ed Alumni Relations | Merge

Social Media in Higher Ed Alumni Relations | Merge | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

We'll discuss best practices for higher education alumni social media and which colleges are getting it right.

Marty Note
This is a slideshare from @mattmcfadden. Matt spoke at Raleigh Internet Summit today about social and SEO. He mentioned MergeWeb.com, his company, figured out how to put social shares directly in an email. I've Tweeted for more on this as it sounds cool. Matt admitted they are still testing, but the ability to fire social shares without consumption of the content behind the link sounds cool.

Thoughts this slideshare was well done. I like the idea of social as only as good as the fit for your audience. I think this is true and points to the need for persona and segmentation work.

Blondie's New York - Curagami

Blondie's New York - Curagami | Curation Revolution | Scoop.it

Blondie's New York
Blondie's New York on the Smithsonian channel stinks but in a good way. If you can't smell, feel and remember NYC in the seventies while watching Blondie's band members stitch their 20-million selling Parallel Lines album together you weren't there. I was and I remember. 

I remember the crime, grime and sense of hopelessness that seemed to have a choke hold on NYC. But the ART was amazing. In a tiny rat-hole of a bar named CBGB the Talking Heads, Ramones and Blondie was born, nurtured, taught and honed. The Smithsonian's documentary tells several stories simultaneously. 

One story is the city's rotting corpse infecting the air and spirits with the thick fetid smell of death and dying. Yet despite or maybe because of the retching, queasy  feel great art was made. Art that defined the city, the bands and us.
