It revealed that 80% of respondents used Facebook for marketing purposes, while a little more than half (51%) turned to Twitter.

State of the Blog Union 2017: How The Online World Has Changed | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it

Never has it been more evident that the state of the blogging world has completely changed. In fact, discussing only blogs feels a little outdated on its own. While most of us working online used to agree that blogs were essential for brands, it’s become clear that what works right now is very different from what worked two years ago — and what will work two years (or even two months) from now.

The Golden Age of Gay Podcasting

The Golden Age of Gay Podcasting | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it

When Kathy Tu and Tobin Low’s podcast “Nancy” came out via WNYC earlier this April, it was announced by way of a two-minute prologue promising “a show about all things LGBTQ and beyond.” But it wasn’t going to be “‘Will and Grace’ the podcast,” and it wasn’t going to be your average gay pop culture show. Low and Tu made that clear from the start. “Nancy” was going to be a show about “the experience of living as a queer person,” as Low later told TIME magazine, ”and not about the idea of queerness.”
