    Nominating for Social Media Blog of the year –
    A wide ranging design related blog with a Social Media Focus it has provided some real insight for me this year and nearly always makes me smile.

  • Lighthouse Insights is the social media blog i’d like to nominate. My reasons are as follows: (1) The updates are always customized for India .i.e. even global stories are given an Indian touch (2) the stories are very frequent (3) the blog always keeps the reader in mind for e.g. they have a ‘5 social media stories to read this sunday’ every sunday which is very helpful.

    My vote goes to  – it’s the dedicated blog / website community for the LinkedIn group, Social Media Marketing. With over 500,000 members and 20 niche subgroups, it’s the largest community of social media marketing professionals on the planet.

  • I vote for Sharocity  for being one of the best Social Media blogs – for always keeping me informed about an array of social networks for businesses and profiles. 

  • So glad I’m not the first to reco Jon Loomer’s blog (; not for fear of “going first”, but because Jon seriously deserves the cred. Most so-called Facebook “experts” have an amazing way with words. And by way with words, I mean a way to use an impressive assortment of (buzz)words, without really saying anything at all. You’ll never find that in one of Jon’s posts. Every single entry is filled with actionable tools, insight and tips for winning on Facebook. Nominating a true FB researcher/influencer is the least I can do. 

  •  Thank you sooo much for your support and I really appreciate the nomination 🙂

    There are so many great content marketers that are much bigger and I love them all too, like Amy Porterfield, Mari Smith, Andrea Vahl, Nick Unsworth and likely more I’m forgetting about right now.

    Jon is a relatively unsung hero and I think he deserves some credit here!

    What I really like, is that Jon knows how to cut through all the hype and serve up really useful & tested analysis on Facebook Marketing.

    He recently cut through the crap for us on all the negative stuff on what Facebook “Reach” and “talking about” really mean for us and what we should be focusing on.  Now he is posting about recent changes to Facebook ppc & why some ads are being rejected now.

    Thanks Jon …10+

His blog hasn’t been up for a long time, yet he has hundreds of posts full of top-of-the-line information. I always hit up his website whenever I have questions or concerns. Honestly? I have no idea what I would do if it somehow ceased to exist. I don’t know Jon personally, so the fact that I’m willing to write a paragraph on here just to nominate him and talk about how awesome his work really is should speak for itself. He deserves this. Period. Thanks!!!

    Jason Cruz making waves in the Filipino digital marketing scene. He’s one of the few voices of a smart combination of fact, reason and insight in Asia when it comes to social media marketing. He manages social media accounts over at MRM; a company of the Universal McCann group. A very astute, transparent individual with forward-thinking and a big heart. I think he deserves to be short-listed.



    LightHouse Insights for Indian Social Media and Insights

  • My votes goes to Social Samosa : Indian Social Media Knowledge Storehouse. Covering best practices, tips, expert advice, case studies, jobs and events –

  • That I would say without any doubts would be . 

    Not restricting to “one of the best”, I’d say its “The Best” Social Media Blog in India and also a great source of insights for all readers across the globe. They don’t just evaluate campaigns held in India. More than that, they analyse how campaigns held in the US or abroad would be received from an Indian perspective, how similar campaigns work out in US and not in India, how same brand employs different strategies abroad and in the Indian Market… etc.
    Its one of the few blogs I have seen yet that has maintained its quality of articles. In my humble opinion, if there is one blog which should definitely make the list, this is one.

    I would not only like to nominate Social Samosa ( but would want it to win for a number of simple reasons. It’s best social media blog because a) It’s relevant and reflects on real issues (hence it’s extremely social), b) the quality and frequency of content is always up to date(hence it works as perfect media), c) it creates a stage where a large and diverse view points on social media converge in appropriation(hence it’s a perfect blog). In totality it becomes a perfect “social media blog”. There is another reason for it, I love samosa and in case you don’t, just give it a try!
