Description: From social networking to blogging to sharing multimedia online, artists now have the ability to be their own publisher and promoter through a variety of different channels. New technology called social media has forever changed traditional modes of communication. Now, through smart social networking and online positioning, an individual or small nonprofit arts organization can wield as much influence as a large corporation.
Learn about some of the most popular tools of the social media trade — including LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and YouTube — and how they can help you develop a stronger following. Discover the reasons why social media helps drive engagement and learn from effective uses of social media by artists and for artists.
