Slides* from my social media education session at this year’s NAFSA event in Houston, TX:
Social media represents an ever-changing set of communications tools, challenges, and opportunities. This session covers techniques for assessment, goal setting, and metrics for success. Additionally, participants learn about how Google Plus might be more influential than Facebook and why sites like Orkut, VK, and Renren are important.
Videos & Links that I shared in my talk are available after the jump.

- SNHU Stories – global mashup of interviews of SNHU students.
- Twylah – a new way to showcase tweets. For example, here’s my Twylah page.
- IFTTT (If This Then That) – a great tool for social media communications experimentation.
- Crowdbooster – “measure and optimize your social media marketing.”
Highlights for me from this event were all of the awesome conversations with global education pros and having a front row seat for Rick Steves’ amazing plenary session. I could listen to Rick talk about international education for hours on end. Thanks again to everyone at NAFSA for putting on a fantastic event!
Note: Due to a technical glitch, the audio for my session wasn’t recorded.
