The Midwest Atlantic Region Dives into Social Media
In just the past few years, social networking sites have started up in dorm rooms or garages, evolved into worldwide corporations, and become entangled in nearly everything on and off the Internet. Almost every day I hear someone say “Facebook me” or “YouTube it”. You can now “check-in”, “like”, “tweet”, “post”, “blog”, and a whole host of other actions right from your phone, tablet, or computer. With the explosion of such social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube, G.R.E.A.T. is starting to experiment with the possibilities in order to better serve our G.R.E.A.T. community.
