Did your top social media moments make the lists?
'Tis the season for Top 10 lists and with social media as a huge trend in 2009, there are inevitably several focused on that, including ones from the 'Los Angeles Times,' the 'Florida Sun-Sentinel,' and 350 Days in a PR Life.
'Tis the season for Top 10 lists and with social media as a huge trend in 2009, there are inevitably several focused on that, including ones from the Los Angeles Times, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and 360 Days in a PR Life (though we're still waiting for part 2). While the LA Times talked about District 9's use of social media, it didn't mention the social media success of Paranormal Activity, which shows up on the Sun-Sentinel's list. Ashton Kutcher versus CNN, Susan Boyle's success, and the Burger King Whopper Sacrifice show up and also demonstrate the pop culture power of social media. But the Hudson River plane crash updates and the Iran election protests showed the more serious side of social media.
Is there a major social media moment that was left off these lists? Oprah's foray into Twitter didn't turn into much and not all Catholics followed the Pope as he moved online. But I especially enjoyed covering NASA's Tweet-up, watching The Bob Woodruff Foundation demonstrate Twitter fundraising, and discovering how sports teams and leagues are using more social media.
