  • Hi my name is Nan Stenzel from University of Maryland ExtensionWhen I was asked to do this presentation I was a bit hesitant because I wasn’t really sure who the audience would be and how much they would already know about social networking and social media.So, lets see a show of hands…How many Facebook users?How many Twitter users?How many has a Blog?How many do these things for their businesses / organizations / farms ???Ok so, hopefully those of you that have been using social networking sites will still get something out of this and hopefully those that have not ventured down that path yet will be encouraged to give it a try.After this is a face-to-face networking session and hopefully this will provide some “food for thought and discussion”!!!
  • If you’re new to social networking, you may first want to think about what kind of user do you want to be?Are you going to try to keep it strictly personal or are you willing to mix personal and business? If you run a farm business, are you going to want to reach out to current customers, gain new one’s, etc.Just some things to think about before you get started!
  • Many people first don’t really know what they would use social networking for… What kinds of things would I post? Who would be interested in it? This ties back to the previous slide…. What type of social networking user do you want to be?
  • Example of a Home PageActually, I had to scramble a bit last week because Facebook changed their layout and interface on me. This is a picture from the help section describing the layout of the new home page.
  • Choose a category from one of the drop down optionsProvide a Name for the PageEnter the security words
  • If you already have a facebook account, you can log in hereIf you don’t already have a facebook account, you can create one here
  • Some Examples of Organizations and Businesses
