Ragan Seminar Loaded with information
Just got back from the Ragan Communications seminar on Corporate Communications in a Web 2.0 world. There was a great emphasis on the use of Social Media as a communication tool within organizations and as a way to reach customers and other stakeholders. This semester I am teaching the Organizational Communication class here at Coker and with this seminar up in Carey, NC, at the SAS World Headquarters it was just too good an opportunity to pass up. Will be blogging more about this but today I want to show a sample of this social media. First -- we have the blog, one of the most obvious tools of social media. And, you can embed photos and videos in blogs. This conference seemed like a great opportunity to ask some of the professionals in the field about advice for students who will soon be in the job market. Shel Holtz, who was getting ready to give the morning's keynote address on Trends that may take us to the 3.0 world shared a short thought for students in the video on today's blog. Shel, is one of the thought leaders in social media.
