Social Media 101 with Mashable
Sony Wonder Lab
By Alexandra Patchen
APIs, 3rd Party Apps, Clouds, Hootsuite. Is this social media terminology a foreign language to you?
On Sept. 14 at Sony Wonder Technology Lab, we were fortunate to have Mashable’s Emily Banks translate the new technology flooding the ever-expanding social media universe. As an Associate Managing Editor at Mashable, Banks is responsible for ensuring that articles written under her watch are done so with a clear and incisive voice. And she delivered. She showed us how Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google+ are instrumental in career and business development. She made believers out of those who swatted away social media as a legitimate outlet for business growth.
- Be yourself
- Be transparent
- Be responsive
- Be prepared for the worst.
