Do a search for politics on Bing Social Search, and its new “who to follow on Twitter” feature offer exactly one person: Sarah Palin. Gary Price of ResourceShelf tipped me to this gem. Hey, perhaps it’s designed to help balance out the seemingly left-leaning recommendations that Twitter makes: No Fox News or Tea Baggers there among the Huffington Post, CNN, NPR and Congressional Quarterly! Actually, the latter three are arguably more middle in the road, though you might not see it that way, if you’re on the right. How About Some Tea? For fun, let’s do some side-by-side. How about Tea Party? Bing is on the left-side (literally and figuratively) suggesting anti-Tea Party pundit Keith Olbermann. As for Estate 44, its aim is to “expose” Tea Party conservatives online. Twitter’s on the right, listing accounts that are pro-Tea Party. Oh, and what’s the California flag doing as a background to Twitter’s recommendations? That’s … [Read more...] about Who To Follow For Political Tweets? Bing Endorses Sarah Palin!

As the name suggests, they make work more social, too. But, there’s been an excessive amount of one-sided conversation around Workplace by Facebook recently, generated by those who perhaps don’t understand the company communications landscape as well as they should. So does Workplace by Facebook live up to the hype? Some words of caution: Beware of “shiny new object” syndrome Let’s not be too distracted by shiny new things. Instead, let’s focus on the basics of communication. Communications tools are the tools; not the strategy. Communication channels are the channels; not the message. How we apply them, and what we use them for, is what counts. The key is to understand the pros and cons of each tool and channel, and when to use them.

We also need to remember that important messages need to be repeated multiple times, using multiple … [Read more...] about Workplace by Facebook: a reality check
