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

June 30, 2011 - 7 Comments

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:
