Social Media: Game Changer, or World Changer?
Everyone knows that social media have revolutionized the way companies do business. But can social media also change the world? Part one of this fall's two-part series will introduce you to young entrepreneurs who have founded revolutionary organizations that are indeed changing the world, one Tweet at a time.
Whether you’re a social media skeptic or a champion, a novice user or an expert, join us on October 14 at 6:30PM in Frank Auditorium (1524 Van Munching Hall) to explore the innovative and inspiring ways that social media can be harnessed to create global social and environmental changes, as well as the challenges of mobilizing today’s generation via technology. This event is free, and open to the public.
