The Weekly SPI Debrief - July 29, 2011

by Mike Smith, Station Products & Innovation

Welcome to the Weekly PBS Interactive Station Products & Innovation Debrief, designed to give PBS stations a rundown of product updates and opportunities announced this week on our blog.

At PBS, we're making tools that you can use -- no programming required -- to make your job easier. Check out the link below for a blog post, written by Data Producer Michelle Minkoff, all about the latest DataTool from PBS Interactive.

If you haven’t yet had a chance to take the SPI Communication survey, we would still love to hear our feedback! PBS Station Products & Innovation continually strives to keep open, direct lines of communication with you and provide valuable information and resources for your station through various platforms. Your responses will help inform our exchanges with you and promote innovation across the system. Participation may even get you a swag bag full of PBS goodies.

This week, PBS Interactive launched a sneak preview of PBS Food. The content channel will serve as a centralized web experience for food and cooking content from across the PBS system, with the goal of driving traffic to national and local content. Check out the link below for more information on the 'Fresh Tastes' blog.

We also took a deeper look into Google+ and found a few simple tools that can help migrate your contacts, photos, and videos from Facebook to Google+.

Just a reminder, the PBS Media Infusion module is being retired at this time. In light of the recent launch of PBS LearningMedia (, PBS Education is shifting its focus on how to address blogging and social media. At this time we ask that you remove the PBS Media Infusion module from your sites and stay tuned for future plans.

Follow the links below to continue reading... Have a wonderful weekend!
As always, the SPI team appreciates all of your valuable comments and participation on our site this week and every week.
