Influence&SMThis particular topic of the week is for PRCA 3334.

First, visit this link, then contemplate and answer a few questions.

Of the eight social mediums listed, how many have you used? How many do you use on a regular basis? Of those you use regularly, how much time would you estimate you spend using each on a weekly basis (in minutes/hours)? Would you consider yourself addicted to any social medium? If so, which and why? Do you believe any of these social mediums have influenced your life when not online (i.e. where to eat/not to eat)? Finally, how many businesses (if any) do you follow via social networking? Why?

Now that you’ve examined your social networking usage, how do you think your client is using social networking to influence your buying decisions and/or what you and your friends are talking about?
