Dear You,

Exploring the Twittterworld, I came across an interesting diagram relating social media to the human anatomy. For those of you unfamiliar with Twitter, here’s a quick rundown. Twitter is a messaging service, that allows users to tell others what they’re doing over multiple networks and devices. It’s a social networking tool that’s asks one question, “What are you doing?”  to which users must post an answer, called a “tweet,”  of 140 characters or less. It’s kind of like an AIM status, except anyone on Twitter can see it. Tweeters can follow each other and respond to tweets or even message each other directly.

Anyhoo, back to the diagram, which I give full credit to Hutch Carpenter, a senior product manager at Connectbeam. (Find out more about him here.) When you use social media, what do you use it for? Keeping up with friends? Chatting? Business? You’ll see an incomplete list below of where to go to get what you want from social media below.

Where are you on this list? What do you use social media for?

Enjoy,

MissFits
