Workshop Two:  Integrating Your Social Web Presence

This workshop will help veterans of the social web integrate their social tools and increase efficiencies in their current practices.

Following the advice of social media “experts” you have established your own blog and joined a number of social sites, including Facebook, MySpace, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, and Upcoming.org, among others. Now, the experts say you must add content to each of these accounts regularly to keep them dynamic. So, how’s this supposed to make your life easier?

Relax. With some careful planning, you can streamline the process of keeping all of your Social Web accounts fresh and engaging without breaking your back or the bank. The trick is to make your social accounts work together.

The Social Web is an open and easily integrated system based on RSS feeds, widgets, applications, and plugins. Learn how to take advantage of these technologies and maximize your time and resources spent in the Social Web. Learn how to map out the proper integration plan to fit your needs.

Learn how to integrate your Social sites and tools by:
Feeding your blog posts into other social sites
Using applications to integrate social tools and sites
Implementing widgets and badges
Using plugins in WordPress and other CMSs
Using integration tools like Ping.fm and HootSuite
