Friday Five for 2/19/10

by Ron on February 19, 2010


Another week for the Friday Five in social media. My favorite this week comes courtesy of my sister-in-law in Australia who sent me an article on an Australian bank that seemed unhappy with its profitable quarter and chose to Tweet about it. The public responded (as only Aussies can). I believe it speaks directly to how social media tools have become part of the mainstream of how we communicate (even with banks and corporations).

Without further adieu, this week’s links:

* Westpac Bank writes ‘Oh So Very Over It’ on Twitter Account by Cameron Atfield, Brisbane Times.

* Google Buzz Monitoring by Rick Klau, Rick Klau’s Weblog.

* 20 Inspiring Women to Follow on Twitter by Halle Tecco,

* The Sex and the City Guide to Blogging by (our very own) Julie Roads, Copyblogger.

* Seth Godin Should Read His Own Book by Mark Cuban, Blog Maverick Blog
