What Readers are Saying About the Book:
The Little Black Book of Social Media is a super practical and actionable little treatise on how to be your best self/brand on social media. It’s perfect for my pop culture and technology course. One of the assignments is to professionalize a social media profile, and this book walks students (or anyone new to social media) through 30 days of what they need to know to create a professional, engaging social media account. The book can even function like a workbook with journal entries and tables that easily translate into gradable assignments. I would also assign the book as required reading to any social media intern. According to the authors, “70% of the US population has at least one social media profile,” but that doesn’t mean it’s the best social media profile for one’s intended audience. Even veteran social media users can benefit from the refresher and the web resources which are an amazing treasure trove.
