Great post by David Strom, who spoke today on Sam Whitmore's weekly conference call with the PR industry. David included Hubbub in a list of PR folks who are using social media "to get their jobs done." Note: David's list, of course, is not complete. But it's an interesting sample of how communication pros are actually using social media to run their businesses or get smarter at what they do.
Paul Gillin (formerly of Computerworld and Tech Target) has written a book called The New Influencers. This chapter on tools is very instructive.
Suzanne Stefanac has written another book called Dispatches from Blogostan. Here is a chapter on blog design, although there are others (not online) that have moretechnical information about Web 2.0.
Digg Labs has two visualization tools (Swarm and Stack) worth a look that show where all those links go.
Michelle Leder, a blogger for footnoted.org, uses SEC and other public documents to research what is going on inside many companies. A story here on the AlbanyTimes-Union talks about her discoveries.
Contantin Basturea’s list of all PR bloggers here and also has another list of more than 250 CEO bloggers (as of October).
Debbie Weil has written the Corporate Blogging Book and has plenty of great advice and case studies too about corporate and CEO bloggers.
Then there is the hubbub guys, who are using Wikis and blogs to build their own PR business.
The folks at SocialMedia Club is focused on identifying best practices in the social networking space that seems geared towards PR people
Jen McClure’s Society for New Communications Research (where I am one of their fellows) has conferences and a journal to identify trends and issues
Finally, you’ll have to listen to the broadcast to hear what I have to say about the continued lack of follow-up with my own PR contacts.
