As a generation that grew up with Myspace and Facebook, young professionals are innately in-tune with the social media world. However, newer outlets like Twitter, LinkedIn and FourSquare might seem less natural to many twenty-somethings looking to maximize their online visibility.
Let’s face it – these new social media profiles have faced tremendous criticism not because they’re not useful, but because we don’t know how to use them. We’re scared, and that’s really okay, because similar to the outrage we experience whenever Mark Zuckerberg changes the Facebook news feed, we’ll soon adopt to the new technology before our eyes (rather, our computer screens).
This week, we’re focusing on social media as a form of networking, visibility and self-expression. Each of these factors are easily achievable, and we want to help you achieve your full online potential. Who knows – you could even get a job out of it!
Which social media outlets do you use? Some more frequently than others? Do explain, we’d love to hear it.
