Minority Businesses Slow to Embrace Social Media and Web 2.0
Those attending the Wall Street Project Economic Summit's “Social Media Revolution” will explore efficient and effective ways to use LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Plaxo, online video and private social networks to attract new business opportunities and increase revenue.
