Social Media’s Top 5 Contributions to Society | Social Media Today | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it
Instead of focusing on social media’s pitfalls and absurdities, let me remind you how it's influence transforms society for the better.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

I like this article because its focus is on the 'social' benefits of social media and not the 'business' benefits. It is also written in language that the layman can understand.

Just Story It - Scoops

Just Story It - Scoops | Social Media, the 21st Century Digital Tool Kit | Scoop.it

Here are the best articles from across the web that I can find on using stories and storytelling in business.

I've chosen them because they actually make a contribution to our knowledge and wisdom about stories, show us how to apply stories to growing our businesses, or give valuable how-to tips.

 

I weed out all the junk. And besides, who needs another post in why storytelling is important?? Where's the beef?? We want the meat!

 

I've written reviews of each article to share what I like best, what you can get from reading the article, or what may be missing in the article.

 

How To Find A Topic: Click on the Filter tab above, and type in a keyword. All the articles with that keyword will appear.

 

I may occassionally review an article that I think is problematic as a way to educate us all, although most I will simply pass over.  If you wonder if I've seen an article that is not included here, send me a message and I'll respond.

After doing biz story work for over a decade (and with a PhD in Folklore) I hope you find many great insights and tips here. Many thanks for visiting and enjoy the articles!

 

And I hope you will also visit my website for more tips and tools, & take the free Story IQ assessment so you can see how well developed your storytelling skills and knowledge is: http://www.proprofs.com/quiz-school/story.php?title=storytelling-skills-ni-part-

Some good Facebook branding examples

Rein Hof's curator insight, July 4, 2013 4:47 PM

Toch bijzonder dat de eerste twee pagina's uit de Philipines komen.. Vraag me af hoe dat komt. Nike hoog vind ik geen verassing. Groot merk. Ook mooi en bijzonder: De pagina van Barak Obama. Niet alleen president, maar dus ook een merk..
