Welcome to our monthly content lunchbox where we squeeze a whole month’s social media business news into a short blog post. In our October issue we talk about the biggest news story of the month – Ebola. We also share our favourite infographic, video, Slideshare and eBook. Read on to find out more.
Top Story of the Month: Ebola
The Ebola outbreak has been on everyone’s mind this month. The above image shows the Google Trends graph for the search term ‘Ebola’ shoot up. If you don’t know about Ebola yet you have probably been living under a bridge! Sadly the disease hasn’t got any closer to being eradicated but some people have been cured in the USA and one woman was discharged recently. I found a couple stories most interesting to learn about and thought I would share them with you here.
The first is a clip of Russell Howard’s Good News. I wanted to lighten up the tone a bit and this is definitely amusing!
What’s your thoughts on the Ebola Epidemic. Is this just a disease that the media are taking out of control or is there something we really need to be concerned about?

As we mentioned we have been without our boss for a week now and even more sadly we have lost our Social Media Apprentice due to a birthday holiday. This traumatic time for myself (Natasha) and Operations Manager, Anthony has been made much easier because of Halloween. I have spent a few days concentrating on tricking and treating.
