Friday Wrap #92: Millennials trust user-generated content, Wikipedia may loosen paid advocate rules

Friday Wrap 92The Friday Wrap is my weekly review of news items and posts that caught my attention. It’s not a look at the big digital and social news of the week; I figure you’ve already seen that stuff elsewhere. As I see these items, I save them to my Tumblr link blog; on Friday morning, I choose from the collection the items that appear here. Please feel free to follow the blog to stay on top of all these items I believe are useful for communicators to know.

Friday Wrap #91: Apple goes social on Tumblr, Getty opens images, PR pros volunteer for Ukraine

Friday Wrap #91You didn’t offer a whisper of protest to the new format for the summary of stories and posts from around the Web, so I’m sticking with it. By the way, I’m writing from a hotel room in Los Angeles—my hometown—where I’m speaking at the Global Intranet Forum. You’re welcome to follow my link blog, where I collect the items from which I draw material for the Wrap, as well as for my podcast, For Immediate Release.

Friday Wrap #90: More of your posts in Facebook news feeds, a 15-second cooking show, and more

Friday Wrap #90The Wrap this well will be shorter than usual. My visit to Copenhagen, Denmark—to speak at the annual IntraTeam intranet event—has occupied most of my time, and my flight home is in just a few hours. There were, however, far too many interesting reports to skip it completely! So, here’s your abbreviated wrap-up of news you may have missed. (On the other hand, let me know if you prefer this shorter format.) You’re welcome to follow my link blog, where I collect the items from which I draw material for the Wrap, as well as for my podcast, For Immediate Release.
