This year’s presentation, delivered by our keynote speaker Rhyne Armstrong, is
“Easy to Use, Difficult to Master: Social Media in 2013.”

With almost everyone using some sort of ‘social site’ these days, it is easy to overlook the power that these sites have on our professional lives. That power can be good or bad, depending on how you use the sites, your reasons for using the sites, and what type of information you share. In this discussion, we’ll go over some ways to use sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter to advance your career (or get it kick-started) and things to avoid to keep from going completely off the rails.

Rhyne Armstrong is Director of Documentation at RouteMatch Software. He has 18 years experience in the technical communication field; often moving from the core discipline of technical writing to the outlying roles of corporate communication, product marketing, and user experience design. Over the last several years, Rhyne has consulted on social media and social networking strategies for several organizations and individuals, and often dives head-first into emerging technologies and communication trends. He is a senior member of the Society for Technical Communication, serving on the Community Affairs Committee.

Please RSVP – VP Debra Johnson – vicepresident@stc-orlando.org
