A morning with Mike Panetta

July 15, 2008

Speaker: Mike Panetta – US “Shadow” Representative (D-DC) Grassroots Enterprise

Topic: Moving beyond E-mail: Using Social Media Technologies to Communicate More Efficiently and Effectively With Your Stakeholders


Increasingly, our population has reached an e-mail overload. It is no longer the choice of remaining connected and is not as instantaneous as our culture is becoming accustomed to. It is comforting to know alternatives exist such as Facebook, Twitter and blog updates.

The presentation encouraged attendees to embrace the rise of social networks. Social networks have evolved from the church and alumni groups of the past and their new on-line presence has emboldened individuals and organizations to interact with others in a much more pervasive way.


Media is no longer a spectator sport, everyone is involved.

Social media sites can be categorized into three groups. They include:

  • Content creation sites
  • Social Networking Sites
  • Content Aggregation


How has your interest in social networking sites increased after the presentation by Mike?
