So you think Social Media is just about facebooking? Well so did I until about a year ago. I was once dating a guy who was a Social Media analyst and I used to dismiss it as being an excuse to use facebook at work. I should have listened to him. I'm now a total convert and use Twitter and Instagram to follow the latest trends, conversations, people around the world and locally.
I recently followed a trail of Instagram users to find cyclists living in Japan who could give me tips about a bike trip I had been contemplating from Tokyo to Kyoto.
So what you're not planning a trip to Japan.
How about checking out local restaurants and cafes. We're living in times where people might not be able to buy a house but they can afford to spend a bit on a fancy place to dine at. We also live in an age where we require the most up to date pictures and reviews. People are more likely to eat at a restaurant after seeing photos of the meal. We call that food porn.
Businesses need to get onto social media to promote themselves and the local area.
