Building Your Online Brand Voice

toryburchfoundation.org — As an entrepreneur, in many ways you're selling the idea of you, not just your products and services. Your clients aren't buying from a big corporate brand, so they need to get a sense of you - what you represent, your values and your beliefs.

5 social media lessons from Roger Ebert, @EbertChicago

cnet.com — It's appropriate that I learned on Twitter of the passing of Roger Ebert -- not only because that's the place I get most of my breaking news, but also because Ebert helped me understand the power of social media and helped me teach it to others.

5 lessons from a lost iPhone

cnet.com — For years, I've been doing the Gadget Boy dance. It's what you do when you get out of a taxi in NYC, tapping various parts of your clothing to make sure you have your gadgets, keys, wallet, etc., with you. On Sunday, as I exited a cab, I forgot to do the dance and left my iPhone 4S behind.

Kristofize: Social birthday present for Nick Kristof aims to do good

cnet.com — Dear Friends (the real kind and social media kind): Let's Kristofize! (Or Kristofise, if you prefer the British version of this made-up word.) Nick Kristof (@NickKristof), the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times columnist (he was a finalist this year, too -- but hey, they need to spread the wealth) is someone who uses his talents and platform to make a real difference in the lives of people around the world.

Sree tips - Columbia Journalism Review

cjr.org — What's the etiquette about including your company name in your Twitter handle? Some news organizations force, or strongly encourage, employees to include a company identifier in their Twitter handles (if Wile E. Coyote were a journalist, his handle might be @WileeAcmeNews). My policy: If they don't force you to do this, don't do it on your own.
