The Tao of Social Media | Social Media Today

The Tao of Social Media | Social Media Today | Technology Leadership and Business | Scoop.it
Getting to the essence, or Tao, of social media is about understanding connection and engagement.

 

The purpose of using social media for your business is to connect with and engage your audience, create word-of-mouth activity for your business, generate leads and convert those leads into sales.

 

Social media has revolutionized the way we connect and share information. As social media has evolved, it has become increasingly recognized as a fixture rather than a trend. It is embedded in many dimensions of our day-to-day life and has profoundly affected the business sphere.

Social media and technology are effective tools when used well and mindfully. They do not stand alone and need to be integrated into blended usage with face-to-face and more traditional tools.
