College of Business Administration and Sensiple to Host Social Media Summit Aug. 24
Omaha - The College of Business Administration at the University of Nebraska at Omaha will host a Social Media Summit for business professionals on Friday, Aug. 24. The free event will run from 8 a.m. until noon at Mammel Hall, near 67th and Pine streets.
“Less than 40 percent of companies have seriously thought about social media,” said Jonna Holland, an associate professor of marketing and one of the summit’s organizers. “We all know about Facebook, Twitter and the other platforms, but business professionals still are working through how best to use them.”
Holland plans on give a presentation titled “An Overview of Social Media Integration into Business Strategy” at the start of the day. Other presenters will address topics like social media customer service, social measurement case studies and how organizations can become social enterprises.
