Homework | Target Practice | Wordplay [Podcast]

On this week’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog talked about what a weird coincidence it was that technology was able to bring our offices, Facebook posts from HootSuite’s enterprise clients, and the spoken-word poetry of William Shatner that much closer to us all in one week.

First, we talked about how mobile devices kept Hurricane Sandy victims tethered to their desks, even when their actual desks at work were underwater with the lights out.

We also talked about HootSuite’s new tools for sending the right sponsored message to the right Facebook fan — a tool we wish we had for our regular, free posts to our friends and family members.

Finally, we explored William Shatner’s poetry-making app, which brings the magic of refrigerator poetry magnets to the Star Trek crowd.
