What's the Latest Development?
As social media continue to change, it is easy to buy into myths about how they can help further the aims of your business, but don't believe the hype, says Neal Rodriguez. Myth #1: Everybody is on social media. Even though not everyone has an online profile, a business can still boost its online presence. Myth #2: Social news aggregators are dead. In fact, by befriending aggregation sites, a business can greatly increase its visibility. Myth #3: You cannot do it all in house. Don't let the number of social media consultants out there fool you, says Rodriguez.
