Salford Quays Media Forum on LinkedIn : Oct 04, 2011
If you use Linkedin, you can join the FREE Manchester and Salford Quays Media Forum. The free LinkedIn group was started 3.5 years ago and is attached to the MediaCityUK photo timeline of pictures that go back to when the development started 4.5 years ago (16,000+ photos at http://www.mediacityuksalfordquays.net/mcuk.htm ). The Manchester Evening News, Salford Advertiser, The Journalism website and soon, the University of Bolton... have all run articles about it.
The group is now approaching 7,000 members and contains many media professionals and lecturers and production/studio companies along with many BBC and ITV staff and local professionals in the area. Peter salmon (BBC North Director) himself has commented on the timeline.
The group is attached to multiple official RSS news feeds including the MediaCityUK website news feed. The group is updated daily and contains the latest news, jobs, comments, photos, movies etc. etc. from direct RSS feeds and members.
