Social Media: How to Utilize it Best

Presented By: Darren Eck, Digital Information Specialist for MN Dept. of Employment & Economic Development

This presentation will focus on the various types of social media and how best to utilize it to the fullest advantage. There will also be a discussion on the pros and cons of utilizing social media for our meetings. We hope you leave with a better understanding of how social media works on different platforms and how you might use it in your meeting planning.
