Social Media … why it matters, how it can enrich your life, and ways it might even help you do your job better

We’ll discuss facebook, del.icio.us, twitter, flickr, google apps, netvibes, etc – what they are and why they’re worth your time. Facebook is more than just poking, del.icio.us is more than just bookmarking, flickr is more than just photos ... there’s more than meets the eye to practically everything in social media.
