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!
