  The Network, Cisco’s Technology News Site, launched recently and includes feature stories from world-class journalists, videos, infographics and blogs, as well as Cisco-focused content.

Adventures of an Intern: Social Media Newsrooms

Welcome back to the second installment of my blog series. I’m sure you’re as ready as I am for a long, relaxing Fourth of July weekend- don’t you wish every weekend was three days? I’m enjoying them as much as I possibly can, because  I hear you don’t get summer vacation when you graduate from college. After my little introduction last weekend, I wanted to actually get into what my blog series will be about. I will be looking at how different corporate newsrooms leverage social media to communicate their news to the public. We’re talking HP, Intel, IBM, Oracle…the list could go on, but I’ll save it for another blog post. Given the focus of my research is on the social aspect of corporate newsrooms, who better to look at than the social networking sites themselves?  Although these sites may not have an official newsroom where you can go for announcements, they still manage to communicate their developments with the public. I looked at three main sites: Facebook, Twitter and Linked In.

Facebook

92% of social network users have Facebook accounts, so creating a Fan page to promote business on this social media giant is a no brainer. As a result, Facebook uses their own Fan page as a corporate newsroom,posting updates and new features on their wall to keep their fans and users informed. Users can comment or “Like” these posts, which is an excellent source of first hand feedback for the company. On the Facebook Fan Page, each comment tends to have more than 10,000 “Likes” and thousands of comments. This is clearly an effective way of collecting feedback.
