Eskills Strategy Development

eskills

Back again.

(GBR) We’re back with eskills (whom we did some training with at the end of 07).

We’ve been working with them exploring their strategy development for use of social media and today we’ll be working with the team to create the strategy.

Mediasnackers delivered an outstanding training day for us which was perfectly tailored to our needs. DK and Mark’s excellent knowledge of social media techniques coupled with their unique and easy style of teaching meant that the whole team went away empowered and following a unified social media strategy – Thank you!

Greg Welch, Project Manager at e-skills UK

The MediaSnackers Meme #15 (Twitter Special)

meme

Keeping track of the growing MediaSnackers Meme.

(WORLD) We probably weren't the first to apply the 'snacking' metaphor to media, although there seems to be a growing adoption in terms of describing the new youth-media landscape—we thought it would be good to keep an eye on the growing MediaSnacking meme:

#2dmnz mobile : mobile data will be consumed by media snackers (on bus, in cabs, etc)

Per my last note — it’s media snacking without the filtering. Radio is a media snack but network news knows how to filter out the trivial.

@DonLinn RE @arjunbasu stories… like a new version of Haiku? Short. Meaty. Entertaining. Works well with “Media Snacking” trend.
