Social Media in January 2016, So Far…


We did another Periscope live stream on January 7th and discussed a few topics which we learned and relearned in social media in 2016. Given that it had only been a week into 2016 at that point, it was a rather busy week. Show notes are posted below but we discussed Facebook, Snapchat, audience interaction online and IRL, and what you can be doing to further your organic reach on social media. This was also the first appearance of #OwnYourSelfie. Stay tuned for more details on this campaign!
