[Twitter] Three Things Digg Needs to Survive: Buzz, Buzz, and Buzz
In a discussion with one of their VPs, we told them that integration with Twitter and Facebook AS their commenting system would be a way to bring views and potential new users to the site. However, if they were able to comment on Digg and transmit that comment onto Reddit and Twitter, and conversely attach Tweets and Shares directly into the Digg story comments, they would have something unique and extremely intriguing. No, Digg is not dead. Not yet. Not yet. That’s it. Shock Us. Stagnation in the press is the key to failure for sites that are on a popularity slide. Create.

[Twitter] Can PR prevent white collar crime?
A 20+ year PR veteran, she was named one of Twitters’ Top 75 Badass Females and Toronto’s Top 150 Social Media Influencers. This is a guest post from Elissa Freeman. Should PR pros take white collar crime more seriously when developing crisis communications plans? Have we been failing our clients by not doing a better job of warning them upfront of the potential reputational hit resulting from knowingly breaking the law?
