What is this workshop about?

Having a social media account like Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter is great – but how do you get people to follow or like you?

You might be putting great social media content out there but if no-one is reading it then you could be wasting your time.

In this workshop you will learn about popular social media networks and also communication tools like blogs, podcasts and RSS feeds.  The aim of this workshop is to identify your strategy of how to engage online communities, identify influencers and establish yourself as a thought leader on the web.
