$12 SOCIAL MEDIA COURSES X100's. America is having it's funny ol' Black Friday sales. For example, there are hundreds of #socialmedia courses available on Udemy for $12-$19 this week (tho some are free, many more are $299 etc). If you've ever thought of trying an online course on YouTube Rankings, or Instagram Ads or Social Media Campaign or Pinterest or Google Plus or Facebook Foundation (mine!) or Periscope or Vine or Snapchat or ... well you get the general idea, $12-$19 is not bad. Lemme know if you try one and how it went? :) #socialmedia   #course   #onlinecourse   #free   #BlackFriday  
Become a social media maven with online courses that can increase your social media presence. Create a strategy and use networking sites to the fullest.

The new TV regulations (Dec 2015) allow TV shows to troll the viewers by presenting one side (usually extremist). Think of Pauline Hanson and her rant on Muslims or A Current Affair attack on women on welfare. We need solution not problem journalism? What shows do you watch that are a solution (panels, podcasts etc) rather than a problem (ranty guests causing shock jock furore)? 
3.4.2 Nothing in this Section 3 requires a Licensee to allocate equal time to different points of view, or to include every aspect of a person’s viewpoint, nor does it preclude a critical examination of or comment on a controversial issue as part of a fair report on a matter of public interest. 3.4.3 Current Affairs Programs are not required to be impartial and may take a particular stance on issues. - See more at:
