Social Media In Real Life
Social Media in Real Life
This is a class on using social media in real life. We'll cover what social media is and how to use these free (or nearly free) online tools to connect with potential clients and find like-minded folks. The unique cultures and usefulness of social media sites such as Flickr, Twitter, Delicious and Facebook will be outlined. Focusing on blogs in particular, you will learn how to sit down and write compelling content, how much and how often you should write, and where to get great ideas that will entertain your readers. Storytelling basics will be shared. Find out who's visiting your site and where they come from, what tags and hashtags are, and how to manage the syndication of your blog posts, tweets and other online "lifestreams."

Michelle Anderson (@mediaChick on Twitter) is a media switchboard operator. She listens to people and connects them with the tools they need to tell a story, enhance business relationships, or share an idea. In addition to managing and contributing to several social communities, she's a media consultant, an author on many blogs, and bakes goodies so sinful they should be outlawed. She also writes deeply personal essays and too-short stories with abrupt endings.
Melissa Lion is a professional writer. Large multi-national corporations pay her to write novels, book reviews and blog content. She is very grateful to the global economy. She also stands in front of large groups of people and talks about narrative and social media. Buy her books, read her blog and sign up for her classes.
