Social Media and the Records Management Professional – Part 4: ‘Social’ Social Media

I love social media.  I think it’s one of the truly great byproducts of the Internet Age.  But even social media diehards like me can’t possibly manage meaningful engagement over more than three or four different social channels.  It would be nice if we could, but there simply isn’t enough time in the day.

There has never been anything more democratic … More Social Media and the Records Management Professional – Part 2: Blogs
