Book update: one week to publication

27 03 2009

This blog is a companion blog to the book “Public Relations and the Social Web”. It will be published in the UK by Kogan Page one week  from today on April 3rd and is available now to pre-order direct from the publisher or from Amazon.   It was at number 3 in the Public Relations section on Amazon this morning based on pre-orders and although not officially available I know some people have taken delivery of the book (it’s not me honestly!).  The book will be published in the US in May.

Follow Friday Five #6

27 03 2009

Five cool blogs for you all to follow this Friday.  As usual there is a mix – some are mega blogs, others are small, but perfectly formed.  Also following the format of Follow Friday Fives there is a bit of PR, some social media and a smattering of politics too. 

1. Mashable  Founded by Pete Cashmore it’s the world’s largest blog focused exclusively on web 2.0 and social networking news. Reviews new web sites,  publishes breaking news and a firm favourite with tech-savvy early adopters.

2. Liberal Democrat Voice  This week’s politics is from the UK Libdem party, in the news this week as contributor and Head of Innovations for the party makes a move to PR firm Mandate.

3. Brendan Cooper your friendly neighbourhood social media strategist Brendan is a big contributor to the social media space. This week he’s not happy with the BBC and their use of comment lifted from the blogosphere without linking back. Couldn’t agree more Brendan.

4. Web Strategy by Jeremiah To say that Jeremiah Owyang’s blog is content rich is the understatement of the week.  His day job is Web Strategist for Forrester so he know’s his stuff.

5. Rock Star PR  The entertaining if infrequent ramblings of Wolfstar’s young turk Jed Hallam.  Message to Jed; blog more.

Five fresh ingredients.  Time to to dig in.
