A Guided Tour To Online Communities

What’s the internet?  What are online communities? Why do we care?

Fundamental human behavior does not change over time; we are the same human beings, with the same basic needs, that we have always been. We want to come together, to share human experience. But because we’re scattered, isolated, and no longer in supportive extended-family groups, the Internet has become our tribe.

A Guided Tour To Online Communities is the first of four programs in the Conscious Woman Online series,  a program by intended for those looking to bring traffic to their sites, get their name out, enhance their online presence, and understand the goings-on in cyberspace.

In this session, internet marketing expert Laureen Hudson covers the basics, and gives you a firm grounding in the realities of the internet; what it is, what it isn’t, where it came from, where it’s going, and the needs it serves. She then moves on to online communities, explaining why they exist, some of the controversies with them and advantages to them. We then take a tour around the major offerings such as Blogs, Internet Groups (yahoo, google, etc.), Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Tribe and Discussion Forums, and discuss why you might or might not want to participate – all with an eye towards advocacy and building your business base.

This session is 60 minutes in length.

Cost: $7.50

Certificate of Completion: $7.50 (completion of post-session questionnaire required).
