Dr. Doug’s Links for Binghamton University Students

On September 23, 2013 I gave a talk on Social Media: How to use it to your advantage and
how to stay out of trouble.

Synopsis: A digital immigrant who started using computers by punching
cards in college and has worked as a school computer director, a computer
journalist, and a commercial blogger breaks down the social media
world for digital natives. After this talk you should be in a better position
to use social media to build your brand while avoiding the many opportunities
social media offers to lose your friends, your job, your reputation, and even your freedom.
