In This Chapter
Discovering the top tiers of accreditation
Knowing which social media conferences are best
Establishing the best ongoing social media education opportunities
The amount of information available about social media marketing is astounding: websites, conferences, webinars, blogs, Google hangouts, magazines, and — what do you know? — even whole books about the subject matter. Knowing which sources to trust can be tough.
This chapter helps you identify the best sources for social media information. We give you our recommendations for interacting with top social media pros, as well.
We each dedicate at least five hours per week to reading social media articles, writing about topics within the social media space, and networking with other social media professionals.
