Social Media Highlights From #Indaba2012 and Pansa News

Social Media Highlights from Indaba 2012

This year Indaba was full of social media news and had many angles to it.
At the media centre they even had a Twitter Wall which kept you updated with all the
news using the hashtag #Indaba2012

                      The Twitter Wall at The Media Centre at #Indaba2012

They even had their own paper, Indaba Daily News which was full of useful quotes
from people who had Tweeted or put messages on the Indaba Facebook Page.

They also had some very interesting speakers on Social Media and Marketing
including Damian Cook who showed Tourism companies how to leverage social media
and gave them marketing tips and a wonderful book.

After that we heard from Rodney Payne who showed the delegates all the wonders
you can do with Social Media and how to build campaigns and use Social Media
to build your Tourism business.

  1. Interesting post! I feel Facebook is lot more than just liking and sharing pictures. With the help of facebook ads management Los Angeles one can even publicize their business website and also promote and advertise it online and on social media.
