Social Media Strategy Class Reading List

I recently taught a class at DePaul University on Social Media Strategy to Graduate Students in Public Relations and Advertising.  Below is the reading list I compiled with tech sources, interesting articles, and relevant case studies that helped guide our class discussion.

 

Technology and Social Media Blogs

Analyst Blogs

Podcasts

Podcasts have been my “secret weapon” over the years.  All the news covered on the sites above is broken down into detail.  I strongly recommend them

Twitter Lists

Specific Articles

Class 2 – Objectives, Strategies, and Audience Research

Class 3 – Creativity, Integrated Social Media Marketing, Content Strategy and Online Community Management

Class 4 – Facebook

Class 5 – Twitter, YouTube, and Blogs

Class 6 – Internal Communities and SEO

Class 7 – Blogger Outreach, Meme Hijacking, Mobile, and Paid Tactics

Class 8 – Online Reputation Management

Class 9 – Online Measurement and Metrics

    Thanks Kelly.  One would think someone who teaches Social Media would have thought to do that for oneself.  Instead of saying “I goofed”, I’ll say “I was hoping this list would grow organically.”

    Thanks for posting on my behalf. :-)
