Had a couple of goes with MP3 files, haven't been able to make it work. Could be me. Anyone else had any success?
Mirna Tonus's comment, February 16, 2012 7:55 AM
I expected that the tool could make transcription automatically. It's goal is make easier as we don't need to change (alt+tab) between the word processor and the player. It's a good help.

Study: Good press releases contribute to good health journalism : Covering Health

Study: Good press releases contribute to good health journalism : Covering Health | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Higher quality press releases issued by medical journals were associated with higher quality reporting in subsequent newspaper stories. In fact, the influence of press releases on subsequent newspaper stories was generally stronger than that of journal abstracts. Fundamental information such as absolute risks, harms, and limitations was more likely to be reported in newspaper stories when this information appeared in a medical journal press release than when it was missing from the press release or if no press release was issued. Furthermore, our data suggest that poor quality press releases were worse than no press release being issued: fundamental information was less likely to be reported in newspaper stories when it was missing from the press release than where no press release was issued at all.

Super Bowl XLVI - The Advertisers

Every year, the Super Bowl presents one of the most prestigious advertising opportunities to global brands. In 2011, 46 minutes of network ads were shown during Fox's telecast of Super Bowl XLV.

But the centre stage doesn't come cheap. Over the past 10 years, advertisers have spent $1.72 billion on the Super Bowl and this year a 30-second slot will set back brands $3.5 million.

We're asking - can the impact of ad-spend be measured by online buzz?

How To Brand Your New YouTube Profile | SocialMediaExaminer

How To Brand Your New YouTube Profile | SocialMediaExaminer | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Not everyone likes YouTube new interface facelift, but what counts, is how effective your YouTube presence is in helping you reach your audience and in be found, linked and discovered by new potential fans.

 

Casey Zeman at SocialMediaExaminer has some good, illustrated advice, to share.

Here my key takeaways:

 

"#1: Add Your Custom URLs in the Newly Placed Description Area

 

#2: Add Overlays to ALL of Your Videos

(Previous YouTube guidelines required you to promote your videos in order to take advantage of YouTube’s self-branded overlays. However, YouTube has changed that requirement. You don’t need to have a running and approved promotion for a specific video to take advantage of overlays.

Now you can simply create the promoted video, pause the campaign and still have the power of the branded overlay.)

 

#3: Prevent Other Ads from Showing on Your Video"

 

But there is more.

 

Informative. 7/10
