Brian Oberkirch on Social Media

With the growing of social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, and blogs, how do we benefit from them in our communication? College Relations invited Brian Oberkirch to speak about these products as well as his recommendation for how Vassar College could take advantage of these services. One of Oberkirch’s strengths was his ability to explain social media in plain English so that even the least techie people could understand. He is both knowledgeable and approachable on the topics, particularly OpenID. Check out his slideshow on “Designing for Hackability” to see why “Hack. It’s good for you!”
