In preparation for an upcoming New Media Dayton meeting next week, where Keri Jaehnig (Idea Girl Media) and I will be speaking to small business owners and individuals alike about social media tools, I wanted to give the readers here at Dayton Most Metro a little preview of what can be expected and get some feedback about what you would like to hear about.
I don’t care about social, so why should I learn about the tools? For starters, social media is about more than just logging into Facebook or Twitter and checking out what your friends have to say. For the individual, social is about helping you find new interests through your peers and reconnecting with old friends. For the business owner, it’s about discovering new insights about your customers and ways in which you can provide the best service to them.
One tool that I would like to share ahead of the meeting is called TweetChat. This site allows Twitter users to track and follow hashtags. By following a hashtag, you can see all the activity produced by a particular event. Tweetchat lets you respond and contribute to the conversation in an easier way than using Twitter.com.
I would encourage all of you to follow along next Friday (11/11) at 9:30am to the #NMDayton meeting and see what other tools we are going to share, and if you can stop by the meeting, we’d love to meet you!
