May Connect @ Lunch

May 17, 2012

The Chamber’s Connect @ Lunch workshops portray and explain various ways businesses and organizations, large & small, can utilize and implement social media into their existing business plan.

May’s meeting centered on Twitter & Blogs for business.

Twitter, like other famous inventions, evolved from an idea on a notepad to one of the world’s most popular means of social media.

The first tweet was sent on March 21, 2006, and it took them three years, 2 months, and 1 day to reach the billionth Tweet. No, that the hype has caught on, there are around 340 million tweets each day.

Twitter now has more than 140 million active users expressing themselves in 140 characters or less.

Blogs can be used for various reasons. Bloggers may utilize it as a sort of diary, and businesses can utilize it as another website that can speak, descriptively, for them 24/7. On blogs, 270, 00 words are written per minute, and 77% of active online adults read blogs.

During the Connect @ Lunch presentations, businesses share best practices and attendees are invited to ask any questions they might have, pertaining to the subject. For the slides from previous presentations, visit
