The folks at NPR have issued a call-to-action to women, share a piece of advice that has helped them at work. Called She Works: Note To Self, in true digital fashion, advice is submitted through Tumblr and is created into postable and printable motivational posters.
It’s not everyday you get free advice from the best in an industry, all in one place. Social@Scale: What 30 of the best minds in social think large brands must do to Succeed in Being Social At Scale is a new e-book released from Sprinklr.
Large organizations tend to be at a disadvantage with social media. They often experience the “too big to scale” phenomenon. Questions like who will lead social media efforts to implementing a social media policy overwhelm executives. While there’s lots of free advice available on the interwebz, you’ll likely spend a lot of time trying to pull the bits and pieces together into a skeleton of a plan.
Social media management system Sprinklr created a comprehensive thought leadership e-book on how the enterprise world can scale social. If there’s one thing all 30 experts agree on, it’s that it can be done.
[DISCLAIMER: I'm featured in the book. I think it's pretty cool, but I think the advice offered from the other 29 experts is even cooler.]

My chapter focuses on ”How to Scale the Social Media Corporate Team at the Enterprise Level” (page 29). Most important? Your team, their workflow and giving them the necessary tools and equipment needed to do their jobs well.
You can check out the entire (free) e-book, below. And, here’s a list for all contributors who are active on Twitter.
I’m glad to see my husband isn’t the only one obsessed with Nicolas Cage’s crazy faces. The very punny Gifalos Cage tumblr showcases the best of Cage’s crazy/scary movie moments. I’ve shared my faves, below:
I can barely finish this post because I’m laughing so hard. Gifalos Cage is my new fave time waster.

Who doesn’t love an animated GIF? Now, pair that animated GIF with short, concise recaps and we’ve got a winner, winner chicken dinner in GIF HOUND.
Recently created by Mike Hayes, social media editor at BuzzFeed, I was hooked after viewing GIF HOUND for less than a minute. Brilliant. Viewing animated GIFs highlighting headline-making news stories in short form actually relaxes my brain. The photos make me take pause before moving to the next and entice me to read the caption-length recaps.
The animated GIF above was one Hayes created to tell the story about Portland filmmaker James Winters who “enlisted his two sons and nephew to remake the classic music video as a tribute to Adam “MCA” Yauch who passed away on May 4.”
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then I say an animated GIF is worth a million. You are onto something here, Mike.
Do you think animated GIFs are underutilized in the news industry? Share your thoughts in the comments.
p.s. Think I might to start making some for FAVES.

Tumblr just announced a new feature for users.
You have the option of highlighting a post to make sure your readers notice it.
How will they make sure people don’t just highlight every post and create another source of clutter? They’re charging a buck per highlighted post.
Better save up those singles.
See more on Tumblr’s Tumblr. Ha.
