The Social Scoop
Each Friday, my team and I wade through the vast pile of social media blog posts, resources, articles, tools, tips and more and I hand pick just three of them to send you via email. Please be sure to enter your name and email in the box to the right (desktop) or below (mobile) to ensure you stay on top of what’s happening in the social media world!

Historically, we would place the email archive version of the newsletter on this page. However, due to popular demand, starting in 2015, we’re now also publishing THE SOCIAL SCOOP as a weekly blog post to make it much easier to share with your audience. Yay, love that!

NOTE: Mari has published THE SOCIAL SCOOP every single Friday without fail for over 2.5 years. She’s like clockwork. Totally dependable. Whether there’s a public holiday or it’s a stormy day (not too often¬†in San Diego, ha!)… you can bet on receiving Mari’s email newsletter in your inbox. We used to also link to the email archive version here but found that our dear peeps were not accessing this page much at all. SO, we switched it up starting January 2015 and now simultaneously publish a BLOG post version of the weekly email newsletter as well. That makes it much easier for you to enjoy and share with your own audience, so we can all help more peeps! Yay, a win-win-win for all. ūüôā
