simple question – simple answer – what is social media?

May 6th, 2010

I guess I am still surprised at how many people I come across that are not familiar with the Social Media Revolution happening.  I am still asked what is Social Media. What does it do? At a recent event where Starr Hall was the keynote speaker, she asked the audience if everyone was familiar with social media and so many did not know what it was.

Now most people have heard of FaceBook and Twitter, LinkedIn or MySpace.  Most just don’t know how to use them effectively or that they are considered social media platforms.

So in this very simple and basic video put together off the cuff at my desk, I answer the simple question: What is social media?

Enjoy.

how to use google and twitter to find your customers

April 9th, 2010

I get an enormous amount of email daily and much of these are articles and new information on Social Media and how to use the various tools available.  There is so much information being posted on a regular basis that sometimes its difficult to filter it down to useful bytes.  (like me use of bites/bytes?)  Today was no different.  I however come across this great article on “How To Use Google and Twitter To Find Your Customers.”  I wanted to share this one with you as I feel it will answer some questions about how to use some of the tools that are available and I just personally felt that Eric Tsai did such a great job in explaining this to everyone in terms we can all understand and in a step by step process.

I invite you to read the full article here.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
