THE BASICS:
SOCIAL MEDIA

Digital Consultant
THE NEW NORMAL
Social media has forever changed how the
world, shares, connects, and interacts with
information. Diving in without a sense for what
it's like can be overwhelming, and building a
network that provides real value takes both
savvy and hard work, but fear not—we're here
to help!
No matter what your skill level is, there's plenty in
here to help you improve your social presence. What
are we waiting for? Let's dive in!
“Social media has allowed
everyone, anywhere with a
smartphone or computer to
reach anyone, anywhere, in
real-time.
WHAT IS SOCIAL MEDIA
"Social media" is a way for people to communicate and
interact online. While it has been around since the dawn of the
World Wide Web, in the last 10 years or so we've seen a
surge in both the number and popularity of social media sites.
It's called social media because users engage with (and
around) it in a social context, which can include
conversations, commentary, and other user-generated
annotations and engagement interactions.
This presentation will primarily focus on the two (2) social media
channels most suited for the goals we have established:
● Facebook
● LinkedIn
OUR FOCAL AREAS
1. Social Media Channels
2. How To Socialize
MAPPING THE PATH
1.
Pick Your
Playground
Which Social
Network
Do You Choose?
