Really interesting story - can we leverage all of the good work that we've been doing in this country, and export some of that magic to the US? It's not big transfer news, but I really do think it's an amazing opportunity for us.
As allegedly the fastest growing brand in World football the natural place for Saints to branch into is the United States Of america and now they aim to do so.

Six ways to take care of yourself during a social media crisis
Make no mistake about it, being stuck in the middle of a social media crisis is no joke. One misplaced comment, one ill-advised product launch, one badly-timed or insensitive message can potentially derail years of hard work on building a brand or individua...

Last week, I made an off-the-cuff remark about Southampton fans on Twitter taking a break during the january transfer window. If there’s one thing that we need to have learned from the tumultuous s...

Twitter Newsfeed Changes: Good or Bad?
This week, Twitter annouced that it was looking into offering users a more 'curated', algorithmically-sourced newsfeed to it's users - whether they like it or not. As a business, that's their prerogative, but I have to say that it's a mis-step from them in ...

How to be nice on social media, and why you should be
Image from Hellebardius on Flickr (CC) One of the things that I’ve always tried to get across to people when helping them get to grips with social media is how personal the medium can be. Think about it. Think about how personal your social media profile is...

Is Twitter killing nuance? #Itsabitmorenuancedthanthat
‘It’s a bit more nuanced than that’ This is becoming my favourite phrases of late. Why is that? Working as I do as a social media manager, I spend most hours of the day either on social networks of all shapes and sizes. I think that social media taken as a ...

Latest post, feedback welcome: Southampton FC: Transfer Review, Summer 2014 – Part One.

Let me know if you think it's shit! Thanks.

#saintsfc
A few days have gone by since the summer transfer window snapped shut. Let's face it, this one was a rollercoaster that, given our recent history, we all could have done without. I thought I'd do a...

Very good summary. Glad you didn't waste any time or effort either writing about Lovren. I was disappointed in Lallana's exit but Lovren ! Glad this international break is all but over now, looking forward to seeing Toby Alderweireld in the side Saturday now.

Introduction
I like music, writing, technology and being a massive nerd.

Jobbing Social Media Manager, Southampton fan. These views are my own, obviously!

Happy, done quite a bit, living in London.

I'm not an expert, I don't believe in bullshit, and I don't really like buzzwords. My blog is somewhere I let off steam and try de-code and de-mystify some of the rubbish that you can hear flying around about Social Media.

I don't believe in making social media and technology complicated.
