Today at the Seattle Interactive Conference the discussion was focused on all things digital. But among the vendors in the conference hall was a seemingly old school idea: a new magazine, online, and offline, called The Social Media Monthly.
Now on its third issue, and available at newsstands across the country, the magazine contains thinkpieces and other articles hitting many of the popular topics affecting social media today.
Does social media need a magazine, with all the other online outlets for discussion? Time will tell. At the very least, it’s something to drop into a time capsule because it captures the moment so well. For instance, somewhere I have an early 1994 issue of Wired which contains lots of futuristic talk, but nary a mention of the emerging World Wide Web.
