Communications Enterprise 2.0

Twitority, Twitter Internal Communications

Just did a quick check on the Twitority of the term ‘Internal Communications’ on Twitter. Of dubious merit methinks- firstly, for a quirk of data, I actually get a mention because of my Top 10 Internal Communications people to follow on Twitter; but hardly any of that list who should be there, actually make it directly into the Twitority posting. But, saving grace, @csaba81 does get mentioned in dispatches and he certainly has genuine authority not to mention generosity, in the sphere of internal comms and Twitter.

I know this was knocked together quickly in reponse to a post from Loic, but hey ho, it still produced some questionable results:

Top 10 Internal Comms / 2.0 Twitter List???

There’s a great post on TwiTip called Construct your own ‘Top 10 Must Follow’ List as it relates to your own Niche”.

Which is what I’ve done: my niche is internal comms and all thangs 2.0 and I’ve found some of the key players on Twitter. 

‘Ten People all Internal Communicators Should Follow on Twitter’

But it’s not up to scratch at all, as I’ve only got 6 peeps. So who else should be there?

Update: I’ve started a page as a more permanent list…

If there’s someone left out, let me know…

Social Media Managers in demand, well in the USA…

Readwriteweb stats - click to view

The readwriteweb has stats showing web 2.0 managers in hot demand, despite the downturn. They reckon that both marketing and social media firms are hiring and personal recommendations are key to the process.

Top of this they say is that “community managers are hot”. But who are these chods? Here’s the rww definition:

A community manager is someone who communicates with a company’s users/customers, development team and executives and other stake holders in order to clarify and amplify the work of all parties. They probably provide customer service, highlight best use-cases of a product, make first contact in some potential business partnerships and increase the public visibility of the company they work for.

That sounds almost like an internal comms manager / business development manager hybrid. But I wonder how it correlates in the UK. Must confess what data I have is slight and what I’ve seen, not encouraging. However a PR Week article sent to me via LinkedIn looks promising:

There is mounting evidence that internal comms is proving resilient to the economic turmoil that is beginning to hit other parts of the PR industry.

Be interested to hear of any more substantial data for the UK.
