We're trying out a new format for discussion: podcasts.
Personally, I love podcasts because I have a long commute and I like to run. I find it's a great way to take in information and entertainment while I'm busy doing something else (sitting in traffic, hamster-wheeling it on a treadmill, running errands, etc).
After a very difficult few weeks on many fronts, we have decided to postpone Social Media University. We have a few options we are working on, but do not have the time to get it all worked out and would like to use a short break to give us a better perspective on what we are doing and how we are doing it.

I like blogs but sometimes, the amount of content I'm reading gets overwhelming so I resort to my kindergarten days of liking anything with pretty pictures! Think consuming content + Pretty pictures = Infographics.
We introduced the “Lunch Meat” blog just one month ago and in doing so, wanted to highlight the “Best Of” within the social media industry.
We particularly like Lunch because they follow a very similar mission to Social Media Club, being...
Unless your family has been living in an underground bunker for the past decade, the odds are at least one family member is actively involved in social media. In fact, it’s probably more likely that your Mom, your Grandma, your children, your friends, your coworkers and your clients are all participants in social media. Social media has reached the mainstream, and it’s creating new opportunities and new challenges for families and professionals alike. So how does one balance this colliding of worlds?
You may have heard the old saying “never eat lunch alone“. This is an idea that every business person should embrace. In fact, right now there is even a movement to “Take Back Your Lunch” as part of the book “The Way We are Working, Isn’t Working“. They are trying to re-energize the work force in order to improve our competitive edge, and light the fire of innovation in our collective bellies.
