I have found this article to be very helpful and full of great advice. All five points are very key to utilizing social media when creating and implementing an event. These points also carry into other areas of use besides when event planning. The point that stands out the most to me is "Social Media Zen". This is something very unique to social media because people thrive in having a space where they can be open and share their opinions and thoughts.
