Web 2.5: The Love Story and Marriage of Your Website and Social Media

SOC7 Social Media Track

Texas Ballroom, IV - VII


For years websites existed with static content, a place to go for information. There were very few ways of integrating dynamic content with sites. Then this new idea of social media came on scene. A place of interaction and sharing. As social media grew, the desire for online interaction grew as well. Standard websites are no longer acceptable. Somehow these two were going to have to get married. Last fall, I was challenged to bridge the gap between our website and social media; to marry the two. Learn how we integrated YouTube, Flickr, Facebook and more with our website in a few easy steps and increased the user experience.
