Well I know I’ve already discussed this topic before so I won’t really go into it all that much, but I recently found a video on Youtube of a magazine called “Real Simple” promoting themselves.

Not only is the video itself using social media to get their message out there (through YouTube); the managing editor of the magazine talks in the video about all of the other mediums in which the average viewer can use social media to make it easier to access in their daily lives. The video itself is professional-sounding, and uses clips from news coverage on their product to help make it seem well-known and popular. Also, the managing editor talks about being able to read articles of the magazine through iPhone apps and other similar social media.

This video is just a really good example of how magazines can use social media, in more than one way, to gain more readers and advertise in a better way.
