As a future reporter, this was really helpful. I know that there is always pressure, especially in a high profile interview, to get the “Money Shot”. Whether that be tears, a secret confession, or whatever. Often times, especially having morals, you kind of wonder what you really are doing it for. Like you said in your post from the article, is it for recognition from bosses? awards? public approval? fame?

“Four Square – No longer a recess game”
Comment: Ben, I agree that FourSquare is a great tool for businesses, especially great for connecting with the customer. BUT, like I have said in my blog posts about FS, I just don’t have the time to do it. I think that other methods of social media are just as effective for businesses for use, and those are ones that will reach people like me who really forget, or don’t have the time to check in at every place that they go.
“Call Me Maybe”
I love your for posting the “Call Me Maybe” video with JB. But, I’m sorry my dear Beth, I do not like One Direction. I think I’m over the boy band scene. I really don’t want anyone to take the place of NSYNC in my heart 😛
“So you want to be a blogger”
Comment: Beth, This is very useful info! Especially for someone, like me, who isn’t a professional blogger, and doesn’t blog that often. I probably won’t need to blog as much as I will need to use FB or Twitter for my career, but thank you for the tips as I am getting started!
“Thank you, Thank you!”
comment: Molly, You are right! Often, we forget that we need to thank people. Personally, I always send a thank you note or email after an interview. I feel that it just makes you more personable. I think that sometimes we forget, like you said, to “Give credit where credit is due”.
I definitely agree that Podcasting does have things to offer people, but like Mikelle said, I don’t take the time to sit there and listen. I think that there are other ways to get through to your audience.
We both discussed this in class when we shared what we learned from NEWSU! I completely agree with everything that was discussed in this Webinar. Community is never about you, and like you had said in class, when you try to be the owner then you’re going to fail.
