The STNED (pronounced Saint Ned) group recently held its 3rd quarter meeting on Thursday September 17th at the Tanglewood Nature Center, 443 Coleman Avenue, Elmira, NY 14903. Topics discussed included "What is Social Media: Facebook , Twitter, Linked In….., “, "How the heck do I even get onto Facebook/Twitter?”, application pros/cons and a discussion on the goals of using social media.

Sean Lukasik of Creative Agent presented a very interesting and educational presentation on Social Media. It addressed both the uses and abuses of social networking, and participants appreciated the insights provided.

The next STNED meeting will wrap up the first year of this group and will be a social gathering at Tony R's Restaurant in Corning on December 3rd. Please mark your calendars.
