New Media & Social Media Acceptance Growing?

If you’re reading this in the morning, please don’t read too loud as hopefully I’m still sleeping in on my first day off after 2 weeks and 144 hours of work.



On a daily basis, when I am out on assignment around the country, I review news clips that mention our mission. In the past, only those from “official” media outlets have been collected and disseminated. But for the first time this past Tuesday a blog entry was included and on Thursday, lo and behold, a Twitter post appeared. It feels so cool that new media and social media mentions are beginning to be included now and not dismissed as being beneath recognition.

Do you think Obama, with his high visibility of using YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and even placing a blog on the official White House website, might be responsible for that?

New media and social media writers or spokespeople are consistently accused of being unreliable or inaccurate by the “official” media, but we’re all very much aware that those so-called “official” media outlets aren’t always reliable when it comes to relaying accurate reports either.

In fact, tomorrow’s post will highlight some more of those fun spelling errors I see all the time and some of those are from the “Big Boys.”

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.
