November Meeting: Write and Rewrite give tips on writing for social media at free webinar
About 50 people attended November's free Write and Rewrite webinar, "Writing for Social Media." Steve Crescenzo and Jim Ylisela reminded us that while good writing is still important, in social media, we must have a voice unique from our news releases and official statements. Communicators need to have a distinct social media voice -- a fun and engaging voice. Social media, they say, is about showing, sharing, talking and kistening. A PDF of the presentation is available on Dropbox.
