What’s old is new again. On today’s Morning Media Menu (MP3 link), GalleyCat editor Jason Boog and I discussed how the latest innovations in social media are affecting older media forms like television, newspapers, and books.

We marveled at how MTV was able to use multiple platforms like Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook to keep viewers talking about their annual Movie Awards.

We also talked about how Rebel Mouse can help publishers build a social homepage out of their stories, Facebook pages, and tweets – if they can get an invite to the beta site, that is. At first glance, I wasn’t crazy about the Pinterest-style layout, but on closer inspection, it resembles the old print layout of a newspaper. A few tweaks and we’d have an inexpensive, lightening-fast content management tool that updates itself in real-time.

Finally, Jason shared a Summer Reading Flowchart that drew inspiration from the latest infographic craze to match readers with good books.
