Meet local Internet Marketing Professionals to discuss the latest trends, tactics, and techniques for Web 2.0 and Social Media Marketing.
We will discuss Social Media Sites, Blogs, Podcasts and Online Video. Social media sites allow people to share their content, opinions, insights, experiences, and perspectives. These sites offer users tools such as message boards, forums, podcasts, bookmarks, communities, wikis, weblogs etc. to share text, images, audio, and video.
Twitter is a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users' updates known as tweets. Tweets are text-based posts of up to 140 characters in length which are displayed on the user's profile page and delivered to other users who have subscribed to them (known as followers). Senders can restrict delivery to those in their circle of friends or, by default, allow anybody to access them. Users can send and receive tweets via the Twitter website, Short Message Service (SMS) or external applications. The service is free to use over the Internet, but using SMS may incur phone service provider fees.
Facebook is a free-access social networking website that is operated and privately owned by Facebook, Inc. Users can join networks organized by city, workplace, school, and region to connect and interact with other people. People can also add friends and send them messages, and update their personal profiles to notify friends about themselves. The website's name refers to the paper facebooks depicting members of a campus community that some US colleges and preparatory schools give to incoming students, faculty, and staff as a way to get to know other people on campus.
