Introducing Social Update: Your Source for Social Media News

Want to stay informed on social media news, but don’t have time for a lengthy read? We get it; you need the fastest way to get the news that affects your social media strategy the most.

To bring you up to date in a fun and informative manner, we teamed up with Georgia Street Media to produce our new weekly news series, Social Update. Hosted by Sunny Lenarduzzi, an experienced TV host with a passion for social media news, this weekly roundup is sure to become your new go-to source for major events on the social web.

What is Social Update?

If you have been with us for a while, you know about our former weekly news roundup, This Week in Social. With Social Update, we want to go further: instead of describing everything that has happened in detail, we pick the news most likely to have an effect on how you run your social media.

In this pilot series, Sunny will highlight the social industry’s top stories and developments, and provide useful context for brands and businesses who are ready to step up their social media game. In the first episode of Social Update, Sunny tells us about a new hyper-local ad offering from Facebook and a travel company offering big discounts for guests who boast lots of social followers.

We’d love to hear what you think of the new series! Share your thoughts with us in the comments below, or comment on the video.
