Apologies to all of the professionals, students and researchers following our blog. We have recently integrated all content updates into the Hootsuite platform. This has made sharing content on LinkedIn and Twitter much more efficient for us, but the Hootsuite platform does not appear to be as compatible with WordPress. As a result, some of the links to great content we have attempted to share here have not worked properly. We have caught the issue so that it does not repeat in the future. Thank you for your continued support and engagement.
