Facebook spread their wings and the Independence debate on social media channels

Play the podcast here:

In Social Media Podcast Edition No.64 the fatBuzz team are back for some chat and light hearted banter around the world of social media.  This time round we have  Gordon White, Malcolm White, Graeme Geddes, Cameron Wilson and the latest recruit to the company, Kenny MacMillan

It’s kenny’s first ever podcast so we have to forgive him lifting and laying his glasses so often during the recording!

Once again, Meilee Anderson has some useful contributions from America and we are grateful to her for keeping us informed about what’s happening in the USA.

Once again there’s a fair bit about Facebook but we manage to cover lots of other interesting topics too.  We even dip or toe into the Scottish Independence debate and come out without any fall outs – something we haven’t really witnessed on social media channels!

We do refer to the Rolodex in the podcast and we promised to show what this is in the blog, especially for the younger listeners may not ever have seen one!  Listen to the podcast to find out where it fits in the conversation.
