Program Overview

Program Overview

This interactive online workshop comprised of three sessions will take in-depth look at Facebook, Linkedin, blogs, wikis, and microblogs (Twitter), among other technologies. Along the way we will examine specific strategies for leveraging the strengths of each, and choosing which to use when.
