Earlier this year, Buttry became a free agent, following layoffs by Digital First Media (DFM).
Buttry’s announcement this week was welcome, awesome, news to this former DFM journalist. His full-time role of educator seems like a really good fit.
I really appreciated the role of educator/mentor that Buttry provided during my time with DFM. Even after I chose to pursue a library career, I continue to find relevance and take guidance from his writings.
If I was able to advise anyone about building engagement through social media, it’s only through Buttry’s influence.
Check it out! Buttry’s the first person to be appointed by LSU as its Lamar Visiting Scholar. LSU credits Buttry with being “the nation’s top expert in using social media to communicate the news.”
