Using Social Media to guide and help you connect to Social Networks: Twitter, Facebook, Google, LinkedIn, MySpace, YouTube using new media Page | 6

The Social Media Guide provides helpful advice and tips on connecting you to others, through the use of Social Media and Social Networks. The current explosion in Social Media technologies including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc has made it more easier than ever to connect with friends, groups and customers with similar interests from all around the world. The downside with these new technologies is that often people experience information overload and are either scared off or simply get too confused. The Social Media Guide acts as an authoritative guide on embracing and integrating these new technologies, by presenting clear and simple solutions to common social media problems. My aim is to help you connect. You will be able to connect with more people faster and extend your reach deeper into the social web.
