Lots of people have embraced social media, including blogs, social networks (Facebook, LinkedIn) and "microblogging" platforms like Twitter. A recent Nielsen study shows that social networks have actually overtaken email.
Fine, but what if you're still trying to figure out the World Wide Web? Don't despair. The world of social media isn't that complicated when you break it down. That's just what I'm planning to do at SAS Global Forum, and I hope you'll join me.
SAS has embraced social media, and we're working on our strategy for incorporating it into our communications. (That's my new job, actually.) If you'd like to spend an hour talking about what these different channels are, why they might be useful for you and how to get started, come to Maryland 3 on Monday or Tuesday evening at 6:00 p.m. Bring your questions. I've got some information to share but I'm also ready to talk about whatever interests you.
