Social Media Stories / Trends

Posted by Leah Ludwig

As I was perusing my usual favorite sites and feeds (my LinkedIn Today newsfeed, Mashable.com, Ragan.com, etc.) for PR and marketing industry news, I came across some intriguing social media posts. Some of the posts below address global / national issues and happenings and how social media is being integrated into or utilized for each situation. Others are articles that stood out to me as ones that I wanted to make sure to share with our readers as an FYI or for general best practice knowledge.
