IAB Rising Voices in Social Media

Yet again I’m bigging up the IAB Rising Voices in Social Media course. We’ve a been profiled and linked in one place and I think its a great way of getting us to all get to know each other in a virtual sense before we sit in a classroom together over the next few months.

There’s a competitive element too and that involves driving the most blog traffic we can with the winner announced at the end. Needless to say I’ve got some catching up to do!


Becoming a rising voice in social media!

First session of the IAB’s new social media course, aiming to “cut through social media hype and facilitate real expertise within the industry.”

So we are all due to be the rising voices in social media, a big claim maybe but there its a great course and there were some really interesting speakers. Pretty sure only two people checked in on FourSquare, so maybe gawker was right and the checking on fun is over? http://gawker.com/5506461/if-you-use-foursquare-you-are-an-annoying-jackass

Seems to be pretty competitive already with twinfluence/klout being part of your final assessment.

Am I the only person who always mistakes the coffee for tea at these things?
