I had fun writing today's #WUL  blog post. Sometimes, in #crisis   #comms  you need to shut up. With food for thought from Andy Gilman via +Geoff Livingston and +Ancita Satija .
When working in digital crisis communications, talking up a storm isn't always the right thing. Sometimes you gotta shut up.

If you're in #communications , are you also a leader? +Ken Jacobs believes the two should not be mutually exclusive. Today, on #WUL . Thank you for a great post, Ken!
Ken Jacobs reviews the similarities between the skills required for effective leadership and those needed by successful communicators.

This past Wednesday was a red letter day for me, as the Association for Women in Communication (DC) honored me with its Matrix Award. +Katie Paine, +Richard Bagnall, +deirdre breakenridge, +Ann Wylie, +Heidi Sullivan, thank YOU all so much for helping me get to where I am. There's no way I'd be here without you, and without the help of so many others.

Right?! OK: #trueconfession : sometimes I'll do the jammies thing, but only if I'm really tired/not well. Otherwise, I always make it a point to shower and get ready - at least decently dressed - and get "to office" at a reasonable time... just as if I had to commute.

What do +Adam Toporek +Lorraine Schuchart +Joel Don +Jodi Echakowitz and +Ken Jacobs have in common? Valentine's Day came a little early for them this year!
In honor of Valentine's Day, this week's roundup focuses on seven people who should be more in the social media spotlight.
