[INFOGRAPHIC] Linked In

I’ve never been the world’s biggest user of LinkedIn, but if you’re looking to connect with senior managers/corporates, this is the most likely place to find them. Great article on Social Media Today on getting the most out of it – and the infographic they use: Digital Fingerprint Digiexplorer (not guru), Senior Lecturer in Digital Marketing @MMUBS.

Linked In Posts Employability Data

An interesting use of data by LinkedIn: LinkedIn, the social media giant, has started publishing details of what each university’s students do after graduating. When users register with LinkedIn – a social network for professionals with more than 238 million members worldwide – they are asked to give information about their alma mater and their employment history. Now, these data are being aggregated and displayed on dedicated university pages that can be accessed by anyone. Continue Reading →

[INFOGRAPHIC] Linked-In Uses

I have to say that I think Linked-In has got better over the past year, so I’m more inclined to check in on it, though not daily in the same way as I do Twitter/Facebook: Digital Fingerprint Digiexplorer (not guru), Senior Lecturer in Digital Marketing @MMUBS.

Thanks to @outtherehq for the tip-off. Digital Fingerprint Digiexplorer (not Continue Reading →

NESTA: Social Media with Stephen Fry

I followed this on Twitter at the time – I wasn’t able to go unfortunatlely, but a friend has just drawn the video to my intention, so no need to entirely to miss out. Really interesting debate with: “Stephen Fry, actor, journalist and celebrity ‘Tweeter’ and self-confessed technophile; Biz Stone, Founder and Chief Executive of Twitter; and Reid Hoffman, Founder and Chief Executive of LinkedIn discussed the future impact of social media.” Digital Fingerprint Digiexplorer Continue Reading →

Digital Media Trends 2.0

Following some of the feedback I received yesterday, I have re-edited some of this – it’s never going to be perfect, and I have marking to do, but I hope to develop this into something usable for the University of Winchester! Current trends in digital media focus upon crowd-sourcing, collaboration and bottom-up approaches to material. A commonly used phrase is that sellers should ‘fish where the fish are’, with the trend having moved from ‘push’ Continue Reading →

Digital Media Trends

SEE ALSO: Digital Media Trends 2.0. The following information I have created as a favour for the Evangelical Alliance, for their forthcoming newsletter.  I suspect they may trim it somewhat, as I’m not sure they anticipated this many entries, but I have found it a very useful exercise to think through what each is used for in around 60 words! I would welcome feedback as to how clear the content is, especially as the audience Continue Reading →
