Getting started with social media


What is social media?
Social media is an umbrella term used to describe web-based and mobile technologies that support the creation and exchange of user-generated content. They facilitate interaction, information-sharing, and relationship-building amongst users.

Social media for business
Social media has changed the marketing landscape. Whereas at one time, businesses had almost exclusive control over the message and the medium, individuals now have their own platform and are becoming highly influential. Dialogue with those individuals is a critical element of outreach in creating and sustaining preference for your solutions or services.
