I hope you enjoy the replay of Monday 10 April’s #SocialMediaShow which was broadcast live via my Facebook Profile. Please friend or follow me for notification when the show goes live – just search Facebook for “Jonathan Pollinger”. The #SocialMediaShow is aimed at people who work with or who are interested in social media. We discuss the latest social media news, provide top tips, useful tools and handy stats plus a look at a couple of social media news stories from the past week. It’s also an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you have on social media.
This week’s headline that caught my eye was “UK tourists to US may get asked to hand in passwords or be denied entry” from The Guardian which was published on Sunday 9 April – read full article. What do you think about this? Let me know in the Comments below.

Social media tip
This week’s tip is to use hashtags on Twitter and Instagram that relate to the season or events. Join the conversation by adding an appropriate hashtag to your tweets and Instagram posts. Using Spring is OK but better to look for events connected with Spring or are trending and link into those.
This week’s tool is Storybase at http://storybase.com – a free content idea generating tool. It’s great for getting ideas for blogs and social media posts. Just type in a key word for a display of related terms that people are searching for across the internet. I particularly like the questions which are identified. You could use these for blog post titles or as email subjects to attract the reader’s attention. Most of the functions are free or you can upgrade for additional features like demographics.
