In today's high-tech world, business executives are expected to have a certain level of "digital literacy" that continues to evolve every year. It's assumed that you already know how to operate a computer and a smartphone. However, how well do you understand the evolving world of social media and new digital communication technologies? Do you tweet? Do you know how to Tweet? If you don't, how do you intend to learn? There are formal and informal ways to learn how to use social media in an effective and meaningful way. If you're interested in learning more about the use of Twitter in a professional capacity, read this NY Times story titled, "If Twitter Is a Work Necessity." Thanks to Dr. Wen Dombrowski (@HealthcareWen) for bringing that story to my attention.
