Social Media News You Can Use


I read A LOT of material every day to keep my followers informed of the most important social media news.  It’s tough to keep up with it all, so I’ve decided to post noteworthy news here on my blog to make sure you don’t miss anything good.

This list not only includes links I’ve posted throughout the week but also some great stuff that I didn’t post so as not to overwhelm your feed with KeyNews posts.

What did you find most useful?
