Social Media Today has come a long way from the Google group that exchanged emails about the future of communications way back in 2005. But it's always been you-our community-that has driven our growth. We're really focused now on giving even greater voice to that community than ever before.
We want our readers not only to succeed in their chosen career paths, we also want you to reach leadership positions in major social enterprises across the globe. And it's not just because our community is a friendly crowd. It's because you are the kind of people who know how to use collaboration to solve big world problems. You are the ones who will create social businesses that are more responsive, creative, and authentic. If we can support you, our community, wherever you want to go, then we're doing our jobs.
That's why we're excited to introduce you to our new monthly column, "The Social Insider." We've started this column to both track and congratulate fellow social business professionals who get promoted, accept another exciting position, or get recognized in the social business industry.
Please help us congratulate these people:
Doug Busk moved up to group director, digital communications & social media for Coca-Cola from director of connections innovation for the company's global marketing team. Read more about his promotion here.
Christopher Graves, Ogilvy & Mather global CEO Ogilvy Public Relations, has been promoted to chairman, Ogilvy PR. Stuart Smith, Ogilvy & Mather regional CEO EAME, moved up to global CEO Ogilvy PR. See the press release.
We want to know what's up in your neck of the social business community, whether you've hired or promoted someone, or are the one to whom we owe the virtual pat-on-the-back for a well-deserved career move or award.
To acknowledge these social business career successes, or to toot your own horn (we won't tell, promise), please follow this link to fill out the form.
If you're pressed for time, please tweet your announcement to @SMTsocialinside.
Anonymous tips can be emailed to [email protected].
The deadline for submissions is the last Friday of each month. We'll publish The Social Insider column on the first Monday of each month.
We're looking forward to following your professional paths in the social business industry.
