I see the power of social media working every day, because that’s what I do – help businesses to put social media to work – so I’m always watching to see HOW it’s working.

I really like it when I find good local examples of social media at work. I often find such examples on Twitter. The Twitter community here in Lethbridge seems to be pretty supportive and very interactive. And that community is growing every day!
The most recent example of social media working for the benefit of an organization happened just today! It started with Lethbridge Habitat for Humanity sharing a tweet:

That tweet was re-tweeted by just ONE other user, @KirksTireLtd, to begin with. Within half an hour, 11 more visits were recorded at Habitat’s website. That may not seem like a lot to you, but EVERY visit counts, and these 3 visits OVER the previous record were a HUGE encouragement to Habitat! Read more >>
