Social Media Serenity PodcastThe Social Media Serenity podcast is a show devoted to social networking in general, though we spend a majority of our time talking about the big networks like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

Well my friends, with a great deal of thought and prayer going into this, we have made the decision to end the Social Media Serenity podcast after 119 episodes. This show was started on July 17th, 2009 and we have certainly covered a great deal of the changing landscape within Social Media these two and a half years.

If you want to fully understand the reason behind the decision to end this, and several gspn.tv shows, I hope that you will consider listening to episode 243 of Podcast Answer Man. You can find that episode at http://PodcastAnswerMan.com/243.

I am excited to share that from this point forward, we will continue to cover social media news, updates, and experiences in the Podcast Answer Man podcast and Erik will join me on a weekly basis as my Social Media Correspondent.

In this final episode of Social Media Serenity, Erik and I discussed the following:
– You can now follow The President on Instagram.

– Google+ will censor profile pictures – http://goo.gl/kosRz
– Facebook Timeline Doesn’t Show in Internet Explorer 7

In this episode of Social Media Serenity, Erik and I spend a few moments talking about the layout of the new, New Twitter.

As we were discussing the newly enabled Embeddable Tweets option, it occurred to us that there could potentially be a major benefit to embedding a tweet at the bottom of each of our posts that would make it super easy for our community to retweet a pre-written message right from our site.

We also spent a great deal of time discussing why I have decided to stop using the Disqus commenting system and why I am now using the LiveFyre commenting system. During the episode, I created a sample blog post and you can even hear the excitement that resulted from playing around with it.
