Special Edition: Presenting the winners of PR Daily's 2014 Social Media Awards. Social Media is everywhere. It is used by most. It is mastered by few. In early 2014, we put the call out and asked you to show us why you belong on that elite list of social media masters. The entries came in from around the world. Social media leaders sent their most creative, distinctive, edgiest work.

This year’s special edition saw social media master-minds match Ikea product names with the names of death metal bands, tweet with mittens, stir up love “outside of the cup,” introduce draft-beer Jelly Belly jelly beans, appeal to 300 million empowered young people, and many other fantastic examples of social media mastery.

CBS 13 Local News | Instagram Gives Sacramento A Chance To Shine On A Budget

In less than a year, Brandon Darnell says the Visit Sacramento Instagram account is a huge success with more than 13,000 followers. They find the pictures people post and use the best ones. It’s free to them and the Instagram users get exposure.

“It gives their view on the city, because we can only do so much, and the more prospective you have, the more well rounded image of the city that is,” Darnell said.

Visit Sacramento even started a new feature other cities are copying where guest Instagramers like Thompson take over the account and show the city in pictures through their eyes.
