Adventures as an Intern: the EMC Social Media Newsroom

  Every tech company has a different policy when it comes to communicating news. Last week, I analyzed Intel’s Free Press newsroom. This week I decided to focus on EMC’s  Social Media Newsroom

  The site follows a traditional corporate newsroom with content that is primarily focused on EMC products and services. Social Media Newsroom houses press releases, news stories on the company, video podcasts and blogs on separate tabs in the middle of the home page. The video podcast tab features three different YouTube channels: Events, a Video Forum that includes whiteboard talks as well as videos shared by EMC employees, and Software. These video channels let readers interact with different aspects of the company. By using YouTube to host the video channels, EMC is able to reach a larger audience with catchy, short videos, even if the company isn’t necessarily marketing its products to a consumer audience.
