DEAR READERS We live in a world where people are constantly referring to the power of social media. We all acknowledge it’s a powerful tool, and as editors we seek clever ways to distribute content for our “media brands.” We used to say magazines but apparently print is dead and it’s all about digital and impressions, which is code for reading content online and clicking deeper and deeper into the stories, and you’re critically dead in the water without video. Once you’ve figured out this hybrid publishing formula and renamed editors brand managers, you should be all set to tackle social media. At Jamestown we are all about innovation and staying nimble in a rapidly changing industry. It’s a point of pride and our properties reflect it. At our core however, is community. At the end of the day, isn’t social media in its simplest form merely an extension of community? Instagram is my favorite and I not so guiltily confess to engaging in strategies for embedding hashtags, tagging handles, pithy comments artfully blending emojis, and timely posting schedules. I relish watching followers grow as a result of these strategic little plays. That’s the sport of it really. What I enjoy most though is that Instagram is a community that allows me to be connected, inspired, and transported at any given moment. Think about it—any time, any place, with just about anyone. What else can lay claim to this? Here are a few of my favorite feeds. What are yours? As always, please be in touch. Oh and by the way, long live print! A FEW OF MY FAVORITE BLOGS
