Social media madness
In the next few weeks I'll actually be discussing social media to two completely different audiences. The pressure is on I would say. The first will be at the Philadelphia Public Relation Association's "Leap Into Social Media with Gen Y" where I (along with two others) will discuss how to use social media to enhance your work. The good and bad about this workshop is that this will be a small discuss with "older" public relations' practitioners. A few days later I'll be at the Eastern Pennsylvania Youth Soccer workshops discussing communications and social media.
I'm glad I agreed to participate in these discussions/panels because I can learn from them as well. There's no such thing as a social media specialist because things are always changing. Just look at Pinterest? I mean what the hell is that? lol. The only thing I don't want is to repeat what has been said in the past. When I go to different social media workshops, all I see is people nod their heads; never a perplexed or "oh wow that's new" look. These workshops/panels are also useful to people of all ages, not just young -_-.
