Media Bullseye Roundtable 2014.9 with Guest Co-Host Doug Haslam

Media Bullseye Roundtable

In this episode of the Roundtable, I was joined by Doug Haslam to engage in our usual antics—I mean, discussion. We had a robust conversation about three topics (and ran about 3 minutes long as a result):

—The Edelman post about how mental health experts could participate in the coverage of the Robin Williams tragedy and the blowback that generated.

—The impact of Facebook’s news feed algorithm changes on nonprofits and others with limited budgets (and what it means about where you publish and promote content). Oh, and a bit on the Ice Bucket Challange in this segment, too.

LinkedIn’s plan to become more of a B2B marketing platform, and the broader implications of that strategy for the overall social networking marketplace.
