Social Media – Hey Kids, Let’s Put on a Show!

Interestingly enough, Social Media continues to be “that thing” best left to the interns and young hires who “get it.” It is a lot like the company newsletter, the eBlast and various sundry promotions that sound great and feel good in the conference room, until it all rolls downhill to the poor lackey who’ll produce […]
