If you haven't joined the social media revolution yet don't fret, there's still time! But with so much out there where do you even start?
Something more than a text message, something less than a phone call, not engaging in these new types of online social messaging could mean you are missing out on the action without either "friends" or "followers". Business, leisure and everything in-between is covered and this guide walks the uninitiated through setup to maintenance and gives you the skills to make your pages lively and relevant to the people you know or work with, and the folk you're about to meet or reach out to.
The term "social media" covers an ever-expanding suite of apps, blogs and wikis, but this book focuses on the most popular, and personal, forms of social media: Facebook and Twitter. Significant attention is also paid to Google+, the latest direct challenge to Facebook's overwhelming dominance of social networking.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Compact and easy to carry around or just leave near your work area without taking up space. Information is easy to understand, straight forward and well presented. The instructions are direct without frills and a lot of useless commentary. I am new to social media and don’t care much for it, but I recognize that it has become a huge part of our culture so I’d better get with it. This book is great for a beginner.
