Understanding the latest Facebook changes and their implications

These are the slides I put together for a very short presentation at the Chinwag Facebook Marketing conference on the 6 October 2011. It’s aim is to summarise what was discussed at Facebook’s September 2011 F8 conference which introduced the Timeline and Open Graph Apps. It also goes through a few other changes that have recently taken place on Facebook that people may not be aware of.

Online journalism and the law

I’m currently preparing for a course I’m teaching in December entitled ‘Legal issues and social media‘. Today I came across this excellent presentation by Paul Bradshaw, senior lecturer in online journalism at Birmingham City University, that he gave earlier this week to his MA Online Journalism students.

The slides go through the main areas of law affecting publishing on the web as well as giving defences for each section of the law. All of which are relevant to anyone who is publishing regular content or encouraging user generated content on their website or a site which is under their jurisdiction – not just journalists and bloggers.

Made By Many and Amnesty UK publish social media case study

Agency, Made by Many and Amnesty International UK today have published their findings on a social media campaign they ran for their Campaign to Stop Violence Against Women.
It makes for interesting reading for NGOs, campaigning organisations and companies alike.
Tim Malbon from Made by Many gives background to their work and explains more here.

Disclosure: I work with Made By Many and was part of the brainstorm mentioned in the presentation.
