Building Electronic Community Through Social Media:
One workshop in two three-hour sessions
Modern social media has been around for a few years now, and this technological trend shows no signs of letting up. Businesses both large and small have found ways to leverage the pervasive new mediums of Twitter, Facebook, and other networks to increase customer engagement and the bottom line. Is social media marketing just a new way of broadcasting commercial advertisements, or will you need to spend time engaging with your clients and potential customers? How much of your time and resources will you need to commit, and what kind of return can you expect on your investment?

I stepped out of the shower, and was surprised to see my partner Phoebe standing in the hallway. I didn’t know she had come home, and she had an anguished look on her face.
"I think Snyph is dead." She said, her voice breaking.
She had gotten a call from a friend who said she thought our dog had been hit by a car on the highway down the road from our house. I immediately realized I hadn’t seen our 12-year-old Jack Russell terrier in the last half hour. We both went outside and called for her. Our puppy was nowhere to be seen.
