This is an impressive website that allows everyone to get the latest news from social networks.

Professionals know best that being the first to read the latest headlines is a marketing hack you can’t put a price on. Therefore, Social Media Today also provides a dedicated space for their community, where they host Twitter chats and get to talk about what’s happening in the world.

They also have a daily Newsletter that keeps subscribers updated about social media marketing, platforms, social strategies, digital/influencer marketing, etc.

NBC News – Social Media

The NBC News (Social Media Category), covers the latest events from all social networks. Besides the written articles some of their news are also in video formats.

Now, that’s what we call a News ROOM.

AdWeek – Social Marketing

This is another personal favorite social media source of information. What we love about AdWeek is the recent updates, but also the tips and tricks they share so marketers can make any second count!

Their Social Media Marketing category contains news/tips about AI, AR, Messaging, Influencers, etc.

Social Networks’ Newsrooms

Well, it’s no secret that huge brands/sources like the ones above get their news from the social networks themselves.

Every social network has its Newsroom and Blog where they share updates, tips, and what they’re working on.
