Description

A deck by Qui Diaz and Laura Halsch of OgilvyPR's 360 Degree Digital Influence group (Summer 2007). The presentation included a "smackdown" between popular sites Facebook and MySpace, as well as a look at smaller niche communities (for health, faith, business, moms and more). The presentation also includes information on how to leverage social networks to promote a brand or issue, and how/why you as an individual can "get in the game" today.
