    Social media has become a necessity for any and all business owners. I haven’t utilized my Snapchat app much either. There are so many different outlets that I can barely keep up with regular updates.

    1. Brittany Reese

      Right, it expands our “playground”. I will be research Snapchat more to see if their latest features entice me for use for my own business or my clients. Yes the updates happen so quickly! Sometimea the app or program itself doesn’t reveal the changes or very little information. I find that articles reveal so much information, so that I can look at updates from the company and consumer outlook.

    It’s definitely awesome to see that she’s published a book about the power that social media has had. As we’re truly in a digital age, readers across all demographics can relate to a book of that nature. I’ll have to check out periscope….I haven’t gotten into it at all but I’m curious about that platform.
