Is Social Media "A Great Wasteland"? - Media Unplugged

By Tom Asacker and Mark Ramsey Media Unplugged Archives

Is social media "a great wasteland" of the modern media age?

And…why is MSNBC launching daily Facebook videos that have nothing to do with the MSNBC brand?

It's episode 15 of Media Unplugged with branding authority Tom Asacker and media strategist Mark Ramsey.

Tom rants and raves on platforms mistaken for brands. Mark rants and raves about the importance of Hollywood actors' Twitter followings, how often you should (or shouldn't) post to social media, and one new podcast that wants you to review it WITHOUT listening to it.

Listen as we go inside media to reveal the ugly truth!

For the question of social media as "a great wasteland," see this.
