2) Evacuees of Texas wildfires turn to internet (New York Times) — When wildfires threatened dozens of north Texas towns in recent weeks, citizens harnessed social media to cope with a disaster.

3) Corporate reputation “stumble rates” still high (Reputation Xchange) — Dr. Leslie Gaines-Ross examines the common traits between companies that suffer dings to their reputations, including CEO transitions and financial performance.

4) Iowa governor to host weekly Youtube address (Tech President) — Continuing to modernize how leaders connect with stakeholders, Governor Terry Branstad will be soliciting questions via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, then responding to them in a weekly segment called “Ask the Gov.”
