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.

Google made a move into the photo-sharing space with the acquisition of Nik Software. What does that mean for photographers who like their other services? We talked about what happens when big companies acquire smaller ones with services that people love.

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.
