Our speaker was our own Tom Lyons who gave us a thorough review and understanding of how social media works and why it has become such a powerful outreach medium for businesses and organizations like our own club. He shared some fascinating statistics on the growth of Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and a few others. Tom could easily have spent an hour on the topic but unfortunately, we were limited on time. Perhaps he can come back to present Part 2 at a future luncheon! Tom encouraged all of us in the club to engage social media more to stay connected.
