As someone who works in social media, I’m constantly keeping my ear to the ground as far as developments and updates. Mashable.com is one of the best resources but podcasts are also really great. My biggest issue is not having the time to pick up a book or magazine. This is where online blogs and podcasts become crucial to stay up to the minute. CBC’s radio show Spark is something I just discovered, and was exactly what I was looking for.
Basically, I can be doing work and learning at the same time. Spark takes the social media approach and encourages people to contribute to discussions on technology and culture. The topics are fresh and up to date. Their most recent show is about how social media has impacted the Haiti Crisis.
CBC you’ve done it again!
Like I said, tune in. www.cbc.ca/spark/
