New Beginnings for Old Media, Old Uses for New Media [Podcast]

On today’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog talked about new beginnings for old media and old uses for new media.

First up, there was a major reorganization at Simon & Schuster that led to a few departures and some restructuring of different groups within the Big Six publishing company.

Next, we introduced the new Google+ leaderboard, our in-house cheat sheet for seeing which pages are getting the most action on the social network. Google+ is a different scene than Facebook and Twitter — we’re looking forward to helping define its place in the social media landscape.

Finally, we explored a new social network that helps people with diabetes do something they already have to do anyway: monitor their health. Finally, a practical use for all those obsessive check-in apps.
