Going for Social Media
Alison Circle, a librarian who writes the "Bubble Room" blog for Library Journal, recently had a posting on "Top Ten Things for Marketers to Try." Number 5 is Learn a New Technology: "Last Friday I had a conversation with a friend about social media. I loved what she had to say: the people who are successful in this arena just jumped in feet first into the deep end. They didn't worry about how, or who, or metrics, or audience. They just went for it. So if you don't have a Facebook page or a Twitter account, open one today."
Do you agree or disagree that jumping right in the deep end is the best way to get started with social media?
