Social Media: a primer

A tour of the most common social media and some advice for users.

Social Media Primer

Social media give us new tools for engaging in two-way conversations with people we want to reach. This primer defines blogs, microblogs (Twitter), social networking (Facebook), niche networking (Ning), professional networking (LinkedIn) and video sharing (YouTube). It gives advice on how to use these tools and links to what's new.

Extension and Experiment Station Communications contacts can help you get started and answer your questions.
