#SocialMediaShow – 12 December

Here’s the recording of this morning’s #SOCIALMEDIASHOW with this week’s social media news plus the features including:

  • Question time – Do you plan your social media content? Let me know in the Comments below.
  • Social media tip – Watch the video or read below.
  • Tools talk – IFTTT. Great for connecting one service with another. Eg Display your Instagram photos natively on Twitter. See below for more info and link.
  • My number of the week – 1. Facebook has risen to the top spot among tech companies the annual Glassdoor Best Places to Work US rankings.
  • What am I drinking? – It was good old English Breakfast Tea. Thanks for all the guesses.
  • And finally – Google speaks Emoji! You can tweet @google with an emoji as an alternative to Google Search. For example, tweet the popcorn emoji to be tweeted back with local movie times. You’ll need location services to be enabled for this fun but time saving service to work.

The #SocialMediaShow is aimed people who work with or who are interested in social media – I hope you enjoy the recording below. The next LIVE show on Facebook will be a ‘Christmas Special #SocialMediaShow’ on Monday 19 December at 9.30am. Please friend or follow me for notifications.
