How Social Media is Impacting the Wine Industry

The Wine Industry and Social Media
My desire to marry my love of wine and my passion for writing has finally come to fruition. 

Currently in the process of crafting a whitepaper, that is looking more and more like it will be an eBook, I share how Social Media is being used in the wine industry.  In my search for vineyards and wineries who use Social Media, I found at least one to highlight for each of the following social networking platforms: YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and Blogging.

The journey has been a fruitful one, albeit long and arduous at times!  The people I have met and the resources I have discovered have proven to be worth all the time and energy thus far invested.

How LinkedIn Became my Favorite Social Networking Site in 2011

I don't remember how I came upon Linkedin in 2011 but it has proven to be one of my most fruitful discoveries. 

While LinkedIn doesn't boast the vast number of users that Facebook does, with close to 800,000,000, nor is it accumulating near as many new users as Twitter does, at an astounding 500,000 per day, LinkedIn has seen exponential growth in its own right and proves to be the professional's top choice in social networking.
