15 Places to Find the Latest Social Media News

I often get asked how I keep up on the latest news in the world of social media so I thought it was time I revise my list of go-to websites and blogs to share. Below you will find a mix of social media bloggers, both local and international, as well as my go-to social media news sites who get all the news before the rest of us plebes!

Social Media Bloggers (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Like Twirp, these bloggers are distilling the social media news into useable nuggets of information, tips and techniques.

Trust Communications, Kim Scaravelli – you’ll also want to follow her tips on Twitter!
Daley Progress – if you consider e-mail marketing and blogging part of your social media mix, you’ll appreciate Linda’s insights.
Ross Simmonds – thought provoking pieces on social marketing
PepperIt Marketing, Kathy Colaiacovo, lots of tips for small businesses

If you want the raw news, on a more timely basis, to figure out on your own, these sites are a great place to start.

Social Media Today
Social Media Examiner

International Social Media Bloggers

Each of these social media bloggers focuses on a specific area of social media marketing, with tips, tutorials and education.

Social Media Software with Great Blogs

Don’t be fooled! These apps/software don’t just talk about the social media that relates to them, although it is a focus. They all put out great blogs with lots of strategies, tactics and useful information.

Other than here at Twirp, where do you get your social media news, info and updates from? I’d love to include some other sources in my next update!

    Well, you should have gone viral first. That would have moved you up at least a line or two 😉
