    Hi Mel,

    This is gonna be a great time to talk about Twittermania and the Facebook phenomenon that has everyone talking. I was sitting at restaurant with some friends the other day just listening to the name Facebook pop up around me and you can’t go anywhere without hearing the topic we will be discussing.

    It’s an exciting time to be social and I look forward to sharing some of the details of what is changing our audiences at the local newspaper and helping our clients create new relationships too. Should be enlightening and hopefully everyone will enjoy the discussion!
