Full house again at #SMBB this week.
We were interested in trying out posting photos.. some of us weren’t sure if you needed something specialised like an iPhone do to it. Good news is you don’t!
Any photo you take or graphic you create can be posted to your twitter account. It is a simple case of uploading an image.
There are a few different applications you can use to post images to your twitter account.. some are web based, some are for phones and handhelds. @BrandyGale demonstrated twitpic. With this app you can either use the website to upload photos… or it will also give you an email address unique to your twitpic account that you can just email your images to.
We had some new faces this week – great to see them out!
Tamara Porter from Design Planet here in Picton, Lisa Burke from Essential Relaxation – she got some passionate first person feedback on her products from the people in the room!, Alex Fida joined the @Angelinesblmfld Crew (our most avid attendees), @aboutimage (aka Jenna Simpson, @hilliercreek(aka Amanda Emdin).
Other topics touched on were:
How much time to spend on social media for business? You could spend 7 hours a day! We all agreed that best practice is to decide how much time you want to spend and schedule it as you would any other work task. Then measure your results and adjust accordingly.
Marilyn Toombs, another regular, is sticking with Linkedin. I think we’ll do a session on this soon. Linkedin is considered the number one professional networking site in the world. It’s purpose is to connect professionals for employment and work. We recently started a Prince Edward County group on Linkedin and are encouraging people to post employment opportunities there. You’ll need to make an account to access the group.
#SMBB a.k.a Social Media Brown Bag is held every Friday from 12.30 – 1.30 in the Large Boardroom, 2nd floor, The Edward, 280 Main Street, #Picton, #PrinceEdwardCounty
