Social Media

Social media is a term used to collectively describe a set of tools that foster interaction, discussion and community, allowing people to build relationships and share information.

Key principles:

  • Social media is about conversations, community, connecting with personalities and building relationships. It is not just a broadcast channel or a sales and marketing tool.

  • Authenticity, honesty and open dialogue are key.

  • Social media not only allows you to hear what people say about you, but enables you to respond. Listen first, speak second.
