Three Things

1. Social Media Brush Up

This week I went on a social media course to ensure my skills were up to date. Here are my top three discoveries:

  • You can now post video and pics on Twitter in addition to your 140 characters
  • Video content is king with Facebook currently (post direct to Facebook, not via Youtube), this will bump you up the news feed
  • Instagram now has more users than Twitter in the UK

2. Journalist Requests

Journorequest is a great hashtag to follow if you want to look for media opportunities

3. Great Idea!

Brilliant use of social media by Madame Tussauds who quickly reacted to news of the Brangelina spilt by tweeting that they had separate Brad and Angelina. This story has been picked up extensively globally including on the BBC website. It is always the simple ideas.
