Truffle Media Update

March 31th, 2009

First, media & social information that might be of value to you: Who is using new/social media in Ag?
  • "Farming, Agriculture and Social Media": Interesting post from 2007 (!) gives perspective on social media and agriculture.
  • Monsanto is upping its communication via several fronts (Monsanto blog, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube ) and generating discussion on many sides. Learn more about Monsanto and this campaign from the article "Planting cyber seeds" in the March 29, 2009 St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Why is Monsanto doing this? "There was this big conversation going on (on the Internet), and we (Monsanto) weren't a part of it". (fyi, to read/see some of the banter, use this RSS feed).
