Coffee Break: Social Surfing

Time for a coffee break.

Social media has become immersed in our culture – it can’t be avoided.  How do I stay up to date with what’s happening and the newest trends?  A social surf of course.  At least, that’s what I call it.  Social surfing: surfing social media and/or the internet for any relevant information to the topic at hand.  There’s always something new you can learn.  Many of the industry websites now have dedicated social media news pages or resource blogs with tips, tricks, and the latest updates.  Here is a list of the top sources I use and can spend hours surfing!
