Social media and social networking are quickly becoming "De rigueur" for business. A recent study by a Chicago-based firm, Slack Barshinger, showed that small and medium-size businesses are getting "Heavily involved with social media, with about half using blogs, wikis, Twitter or other social media channels for business purposes." If your company is not yet engaged, it's time to jump in before your competitors beat you to the punch. If you're not familiar with social media, check out YouTube, Twitter, TalkShoe, or any blog - these publishing and broadcasting democracies involve hundreds of millions of people.
