Oh, our busy friends at Ragan are nothing if not prolific! With their social media site myragan.com, Ragan Report, and the peripheral newsletters Face-To-Face, Engagement Report, and the Lean Communicator, I have had to instigate ‘Ragan Rules’ filters on my email to manage the flow.
When the content is good, it tends to be excellent. There are at least a couple of items a week that warrant sharing with the extended communication team and that make useful thought starters with the managers and leaders I work with, including today’s piece on ragan.com that covers the 10 reasons you know you are not ready for social media in an organisation.
But, with volume comes variability. Today, I visited the Ragan folder and scanned the headlines from the week. The May edition of Face-to-Face, included a piece on the types of conversations adults want face to face, based on a “recent” survey.
The material had some potentially useful statistics, and I decided to go back to the source of the data. The survey by Itsasurvey.com was conducted in early 07 for whitepages.com and published over a year ago. That is a fairly loose definition of ‘recent’.
