With more than 300 million active users on Facebook, according to the Web site’s fact page, and LinkedIn members growing monthly by 1.1 million users, social networking is here to stay, and it’s not just for kids anymore. The fact is more and more businesses are integrating social media into their traditional marketing practices and professionals are using online social sites to network, find jobs and promote their personal brand at increasing rates. With this, how can busy professionals ensure they are using social networking sites effectively? Where do we even start?
To answer these questions and many more, Aureus Group hosted a panel discussion on Tuesday, Oct. 6 titled Social Networking for Busy People, with experts from LinkedIn, Redstone Advertising, and BrightMix, a software development company, on hand to share their expertise on social media and provide helpful tips on how to use social sites more effectively. The event generated a great deal of discussion and was a huge success!
Aureus Group will be continuing the discussion via our LinkedIn group page and has posted photos from the event on our Facebook Fan page .
