Boston marathon – huge influx of social media comments, photos and videos. Development of a social media vigilante – average citizens feeling it was their duty to help FBI pursue the terrorists.

Julie Rochefort – dietitetics student from Ryerson University in Canada. Julie is very much a child of the digital revolution and over the course of her studies, utilised hersocialmedia knowledge and experience with great success. Julie’s academic work gave way to a national advocacy campaign, “Shift the focus away from weight”, and included a submission to the Public Health Agency of Canada, which received the top votes among over 80 submissions that were contributed to the dialogue around weight management. Julie attributed her success factors to the powerful role that social media plays in leveraging advocacy. Over a very short time frame (three months), she managed to mobilise her message via social sites including YouTube, Twitter, Face book and her blog and thereby created a viral campaign that could reach the critical mass required for the Canadian government to take notice

The opportunity for a brand on Instagram is do storytelling through visual imagery. This is in contrast to Facebook which is much more about direct communication targeted precisely (rather than evoking a feeling). The environment on Instagram and the mindset of the user is much more about exploring beautiful stories. There are some pitfalls we want to avoid with Instagram, namely that we don&apos;t want to push the growth of followers for a brand (either organically or through a potential IG ads product). If we do, it will not only limit the size of the IG ads business eventually but also would likely just cannibalize from any of the budgets that FB currently has.

Celebrity chef Tyler Florence (@tylerflorence) can be seen cooking on the set of the Food Network (@foodnetwork), in his world-renowned restaurants, and now from his very own kitchen. Through Instagram, Florence is bringing followers into the kitchen with him to demonstrate some of his favorite recipes.

The end result typically consists of 8-12 photos per recipe, topped off with a mouth-watering image of the finished product. Florence showcases a broad range of recipes, from German Pancakes to Ricotta Gnudi. He also gives followers a glimpse into his daily life, highlights of the projects he’s working on, and previews of the dishes he serves up in his restaurants.

For anyone feeling a tad out of place let me tell you a little story. About this time 3 years ago I didn’t have any social media or web presence apart from my writing work that was hosted. No, not even a facebook account. But I was interested in this little bird called Twitter and realised it was an easy way to dial into the digital world. So I set up a page with great design but no cost at all. And in a very short space of time…..

Dietitian on way to work one morning stopped at her local newsagent in a
shopping centre. She took a “happy snap” on her iPhone of the queue of
people at the nearby fast food counter and posted to her Face book page
with the message “it’s not even 8am and look at the huge number of
people eating fried food.”.
Is there anything wrong with doing this? What could happen? Have you taken

be identified. A facebook friend of the dietitian recognised her neighbour
in the queue and tagged the photo with her full name, Jane Smith.

great pride in her health and fitness. She write a stern letter to the
