If you ignore social media, will it go away?
We think the answer is an emphatic, “No!” (See Bill Sheridan’s interview with Rick Telberg.)
And we think that is the wrong question. The right question is, how can we harness the power of these new, mostly free tools to help us as CPA professionals?
That is why we had a special four-hour session at the MACPA’s Beach Retreat in Ocean City, Md. (Here is a copy of my presentation and pictures.) This post is for the brave participants who wanted to go deeper into the tools and how they might use them (and for all of you who are starting to think about this phenomena a bit more).
Note how we used social media to connect and share all of the content and information (Flickr for photos, Slideshare for presentations, blog, and Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn).
Here is how to get started:
