Welcome to Social Media Report

Kids are on MySpace. Students on Facebook. Twentysomethings on the Xbox. Thirtysomethings are blogging. Podcasts are replacing radio. IP is replacing TV. The brand is having to work harder to get through to the consumer and social media rules.

Welcome to Social Media Report, a site that gives you up to the minute intelligence on social media's impact on business.

Every morning this site will publish the most influential articles, blogs, podcasts and discussions that impact the social media, ad how communicators can get the message through the noise.

To get the most out of this site, subscribe by RSS web feed, or by email. Alternatively you can search the archives using the site's homepage.
