We've got a great podcast for you this time around, lots of subjects covered and the usual lighthearted banter among the team.  Taking part in Social Media podcast Episode 45 we have Gordon White,  Kyle MurdochKirsty HunterIain Murray and a special guest, Fraser Bedwell from Poppy Scotland.

Fraser joins in the general chat with the team and talks about the challenges and opportunities offered by social media for the charity sector.

In addition to the input from Fraser and the fatBuzz team, we managed to have a chat with Chris van der Kuyl, Chief Executive, Friends Reunited before we recorded the podcast and  we talked about the 'reinvention' of Friends Reunited and got some insight from Chris about the future plans for the platform.
