The lovely Emma Cossey and Fran Swaine joined me this week for a live Q&A on the topic of Digital Media over on Google+ Hangouts. Questions covered included:

  • What are the biggest barriers for organisations who want to use social and digital media?
  • What is your favourite social media dashboard and why do you use it?
  • Do I need to use Google Plus? What is good about it?
  • SEO – Help! What do I need to know about SEO?
  • How do I get more comments on my blog?

We had such a great time and are really looking forward to running our next discussion. We didn’t get a chance to answer all the questions we were asked (Sorry Sally, definitely talk about Facebook competitions next time) so we have plenty left to talk about.

Before we decide what theme we should go with for our next Q&A, it would be great if you could post any theme requests or questions below. What have you always wanted to learn more about from the world of Digital Media? What do you find confusing, interesting or just think deserves a bit of air time?
