Tell Us How You Really Feel: Social Media in the News [Podcast]

On today’s social media edition of the Morning Media Menu, GalleyCat editor Jason Boog revisited a few of this week’s headlines once more, with feeling.

Yesterday marked the anniversary of the Occupy Wall Street movement. We talked about the importance of making a little noise to build buzz around your cause — and how that translates online.

Finally, we shared 28 secret emoticons that you can use in your Facebook instant messages to feel young again. Come on, it’s just Facebook.
