Happy Friday! Just for you: some communications-related links from the past week or so (excluding the huge stories that you’ve likely already seen – binders, anyone?).
for demos and presentations

media tips and tricks
It can be a challenge to keep up with all the changes in the various social media platforms. Here are some tips from Social Media Examiner on how to maximize your new Twitter profile.
When I do social media workshops or coach individual clients, they always ask about those mysterious hashtags on Twitter and elsewhere. In this excellent post, my friend Amy Sept decodes the hashtag and how to use it.
