About Social Media
  • Web hubs that connect people
  • IE. Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, FourSquare,
    Gowalla, LinkedIn, Google
  • A revolutionary way to spread the word of FIRST

Think about the last time you were on the
internet. What websites did you visit? How many
of you visited facebook or twitter? Watched a
video on youtube? These sites have enormous
reach! These are the websites that your target
audience is using. You have to go to your
audience, they will not come to you.

Be Relevant
This is very applicable to websites as well.
They are not just a monument in cyberspace. They
too can become forums for interaction. It helps
to use platforms that are user friendly and also
easy to update. (Talk about how we use to do
it...) Prescheduling tweets. It helps! That way
you always have something up. TAG
EVERYTHING....that is relevant.
