You may know what Social Media is, you may even use it for personal reasons, but are you trying to figure out how to use Social Media for practical or Professional uses, or even if it has any value there?  What platforms are out there that you as a P.Eng or P.Geo could use to enhance your professional knowledge, or even to improve your business?  Does Social Medial even matter to a professional?
This presentation covers useful information for everyone, whether you are just curious about Social Media or you are a savvy user of this important connectivity technology.  The aim is to bridge the gap from knowing what it is to how we can take advantage of it to improve our professional and business lives.
