People on the Move in the Social Business Industry, August 27, 2011

The hires in the social business space continue to heat up, in fact the market research data (read the report) shows that hiring is the top spend in 2011. Expect there to be more hires over coming quarters.

Both the submissions on this job announcement board, as well as available social media positions at corporations continue to pour in.

In this continued digest of job changes, I like to salute those that continue to join the industry in roles focused on social media, see the archives, which I’ve been tracking since Q4, 2007.

Please congratulate the new hires by leaving a comment below.

  • Great to see so much activity going on in the social business industry.

  • This is so sweeeeeet! I love it! Thanks for the details and wow, such a nice start. It’s improving and much more exciting every single day!

  • Social business needs a lot of things to be taken more seriously and strategically in the C suite. Not only that, but there are other cases out there where polarized points of view hold back social business progress. One example is old school vs. new school marketing. Marketing newbies may lack the perspective to see this manufactured controversy for what it is: a cynical attempt, mostly by vendors, to drive awareness and grab attention. The real and legitimate debate that it masks is between effective vs. ineffective marketing practices.
