7 Social Media Tips, Tricks and Stories from Silicon Valley Practitioners

June 30, 2011

According to Mashable, today is Social Media Day. Whether or not you think that social media should have its own day (#smday), a group of us, Silicon Valley practitioners thought we’d have some fun today anyway…social media style. We created 2 videos to celebrate the lessons we have learned over the years and remind ourselves of the effects social media has had on our lives….so far. I say “so far” because there’s more to come. If you’re new to social media, we hope you’ll walk away with some good conversation starters. If you’ve been doing this for a while, we hope to put a smile on your face – maybe because you recognize your own advice or maybe because you have a similar story.

Watch this video for some great social tips from CA Technologies, SAP, Ariba, NetApp and Cisco:

And check out some personal stories from EMC and PayPal:

What’s your story? Share it with us, we’d love to hear from you.
