In this contribution for the special Thanksgiving edition of For Immediate Release, ”˜Professor’ Goetsch provides highlights from “Making the Web Work for You: How Non-Geeks Use Social Media”, a panel discussion she moderated for the Bay Area Consultants Network on November 21, 2008. Among the tools these non-geeks consider invaluable are Google Alerts, LinkedIn, FreeConferenceCall, and HARO.
