    • Social media is an enabling agent
      • Finding information
      • Learning from other’s stories
      • Building trust and strengthening relationships
      • Sharing your story ( storytelling )
    • How can you use SNS to make your blog more attractive/usable?
      • Twitter
        • iFrames & ScribbleLive
      • Facebook
        • Sidebar widget for cross-promotion
      • YouTube
        • Embeddable videos
      • Flickr
        • Embedding photos/re-sizing
    • Live Demos
      • Let's go into WordPress so that I can show you live how to use each one.
      • Remember, most of what I'm going to show you is possible on a self-hosted install of WordPress (.org)
      • I will try show some stuff that can be done with WordPress.com, though.
    • List of live demos
      • Integrating Twitter into a WordPress site
        • Capture live tweets related to a particular topic/hashtag
        • Liveblog and integrate tweets
        • CoverItLive vs. ScribbleLive
      • Integrating Flickr into your WordPress site
        • Making the insertion of photos easier and faster
        • I use the HTML editor, not the visual one
        • I use a modified version of PhotoDropper (WP plugin), WP-Flickr and Flickr Photo (3 plugins)
    • In conclusion
      • Social media (social networking sites) can be used both inbound (to feed into a blog) or outbound (to feed your blog to broadcasting channels)
      • Your WordPress site should be integrated with all social networking sites you have a link with.
      • Your WordPress blog is your home base. Everything should point out back at it.
    • Thanks for listening!
