Social media has changed the way the world communicates. The tools of communication have gone digital and continue to get smaller, faster, and smarter.
Join us at the NAWBO-MN February lunch event and ask
the media how they are using social platforms like Twitter, Facebook,
and LinkedIn to search for experts and news.
Are you using
social channels to convey the right message to make you front page news?
On the other hand, are you watching what you say to make sure you are
not negatively portrayed in the news?
Ask these pros and learn how their role in traditional media has evolved with their use of social media communication tools.
