About Our Topic:

Blogging. Podcasting. Facebook. Twitter. These Social Media initiatives are becoming more and more prevalent in both professional and personal conversations, and now are making appearances in our mainstream media headlines. Web 2.0 is quickly becoming the new cost-effective option in an economically troubled climate. But there\’s a slight problem: Many businesses, all with the best of intentions, are doing it horribly wrong. This is the \”Tough Love\” look at how people are jumping on the Social Media bandwagon and completely miss the point. From Twitter auto-responders to podcasts without purpose, to babbling blogs, this is the talk where you take a closer look at how start-ups, entrepreneurs, and corporate entities are taking the \”Social\” out of Social Media.

About Our Speaker:

Tee Morris is an accomplished writer and public speaker on the subject of new media concepts.

His first book concerning the Web 2.0 movement, Podcasting for Dummies (co-written with Evo Terra), was ranked #1 by Nieslen BookScan on the subject of podcasting. Its success led to the follow-up, Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies, a second edition (with podcaster Chuck Tomasi), and to his own editorial column \”Behind the Mic\” for Blogger and Podcaster magazine. This summer, Tee will be releasing his third Social Media title, All a Twitter, from Que Publishing.

He has also hosted seminars, led workshops, and designed classes on new media, online networking, and audio and video production in Washington DC, Virginia, Maryland, Arizona, and California.
