Survey says: Hispanics use Social Media the Most -Tips on how to reach this Demographic by a Latina

In one of my college classes, my professor asked a student to pick five people at random. I was chosen as one of the five. We stood up in front of the class and my professor asked, “Which ethnic group isn’t represented by these students?”  One of the students raised their hand and said, “There are no Hispanics in this group.” I shook my head in annoyance and said, “No, I’m Puerto Rican!” Which was followed by, “Oh I’m sorry, you don’t look Hispanic.”…

Improve your Effectiveness TODAY: Ask Me Why

I peruse more articles per day than I can count in my efforts to remain on the cutting edge of strategy, social network management and online marketing. Recently, I found that one common, underlying theme to so many of these "tips and tricks," as they're often packaged, was actually a part of human nature; the perpetual assessment of "why."

The question of "why" isn't necessarily out of greed or selfishness, it's our brains' natural way of making choices - professional, personal,…
