This weeks round up of comms news curated from @CisionUK.

YouTube launches music shop by @Jessdaviesmk via new media age

“Google is allowing music artists to sell merchandise and downloads directly via YouTube following the launch of the Merch Store.”

Publish it! A new way to publish articles from anywhere on the web via the blog @smallrivers

“This nifty new tool enables publishers to instantly add any article, video or image to a current paper edition and automatically add new content from that same source to future editions the next time content is available!”

New Plug-Ins Combine Facebook, Twitter And YouTube by David Cohen via All Facebook @allfacebook

“An interesting widget arrived by way of Israel in the form of Zooshia, which enables blogs and websites to embed a customizable area containing feeds from Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.”

Why PRs and social media consultants need to watch the Web 2.0 summit by Phil Szomszor via the red rocket @theredrocket

“The Web 2.0 Summit has kicked off (when does it get badged Web 3.0 Summit, I wonder?) and it’s well worth checking out for juicy tips and announcements in the online world. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s run by Tim O’Reilly and a bunch of other media companies to pull together all the top dogs in one conference. This year’s speakers come from the likes of Twitter, Mozilla, Intel, Salesforce, Quora, Microsoft… you get the idea.”

When it comes to product reviews, social media users trust each other by @dirktherabbit via Lies, damned lies and statistics

“Another study to add to the arsenal of ‘why spend money on social media.’

This time from Nielsen, which shows that among consumers using social media, consumer ratings and reviews come top as the preferred source of product information.”
