Tonight I'm talking to the Women's Executive Forum in Portsmouth, NH and have been asked to give my thoughts on how to get started in Social Media. So naturally, I turned to my friends in Social Media -- using Ping I put out a query to my followers on Twitter, friends on Facebook and connections on Linked-In and of course got many great suggestions. Someone even suggested that social media is this century's version of Tom Sawyer. I agree. So thank y'all once again for helping me paint my proverbial fence. Here's what I'm presenting, feel free to comment, add, and make additional recommendations: 7 steps to measurable success in social media.
