There is a lot to Social media...and I think parents especially need to know about it.

Hi, Michael - I just found out about this and would have loved to have attended to learn more about social media. Is there any way to get a copy of the presentation or of any literature that was distributed. It would be greatly appreciated. I own a nutritional counseling business in New City and Pomona. Thank you

Stephany .... the Patch Main Street U social media workshops are free and offer insight on social media, its impact and ways in which businesses - especially small businesses - can take advantage of the power of social media even if they only have a small budget or even no budget. Experts offered advice on "best practices" as well as some simple "Do's" and "Don't's" of social media. The next free workshop is on Monday, July 30, at 6 p.m. at the Mamaroneck Library if you would like to attend.
