I JUST READ A GOOD BOOK
A BOOK REVIEW:
The Art of Social Media
Power Tips for Power Users
and Peg Fitzpatrick Kawasaki
I just read the book: The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users. This book is co-authored by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick.
I read The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users. I have read it once now. And then found myself taking notes. And then I went back over certain chapters.
For someone wanting to grasp the social media networks, this is like a good map to a confusing place. It just lays out this site (like Facebook} and that site (like Google Plus) and sure enough, these are the sites as well as others which are explained as well, I personally wanted to know more about how to navigate. I imagine many people find they face the same dilemma.
I especially liked suggestions to creating a profile on a social site. As I read this book it was like a light bulb going off in a dark room. I began to gain so much of an understanding of things which I personally would like to gain more expertise in such as utilizing twitter for instance.
I know that Guy Kawasaki has written several books, but this one is really a good source of information and very timely for this fast paced Internet driven social scene which has engulfed the interest of the World. It is nice to have a guide to show you things, introduce you to some of the things they feel you might want to see, and most of all share the wealth of information and learning which they have shared in this book.
THIS IS A WONDERFUL GUIDE
