    The year that was: What’s new in social media

    {Throughout January, we’re looking back at all the posts our awesome columnists wrote for us in 2012, before our team of some new and some returning contributors start blogging in February.}

    Ellison Bloomfield knows the internet well - she is a digital content developer by day and also writes for her popular blog Humane Resource, for which she has been recognised as a HR 'thought leader'.

Thanks, Ellison! x Tess
