Announcing the Cisco Manufaturing & Energy Facebook page!
Today we officially launch our Facebook page for Cisco Manufacturing & Energy.
We are launching this page for two main reasons:
First, we are expanding our blog platform and team. In addition to our original manufacturing industry team, we are adding thought leaders and experts from Cisco’s oil, gas, and energy teams.
Second, Facebook, as a social networking platform, is an excellent forum for discussion. It gives all users a simple environment in which to exchange ideas, articles, and opinions. It is where you will find videos, blogs, pictures and many other things related to the manufacturing, oil, gas, and energy industries. It is also a place where new contacts and relationships can be made, so be sure to get involved and engaged! Read More »
