Social Media is so hot right now! Every fashion designer and store are involved somehow with it. So, it was perfectly fitting that Girl Power Hour hosted a fabulous social media event last night at Hotel Bellevue! An event where they encourage to you to be on your phone is perfect in my book.

Some tips I learned from last nights Girl Power Hour.
• There is a shift happening in social platforms right now. It's visual obsession! Pinterest is huge, post and link everything.
• LinkedIn is still a recommended relevant social platform.
• Followerwonk.com is a GREAT tool for Twitter.
• check out Tagboard for hashtag tracking after #powersocial
• check out followerwonk.com getlittlebird.com and tagboard.com to monitor social media
• Engagement and sales are key indicators of good social media.
• Blogging adds credibility.
• Next big platform? Vine, Clip, Path. New platforms should all have four letters!
• Facebook is out, instagram is in!
