2011 Social Media Directory
Jeffery A. Riley, formerly in the publishing industry, thought it would be helpful to gather a list of companies and organizations with an online presence in the best known social media sites in a book. With that goal in mind he selected what he considers the most important companies and organizations with an online presence on the better known social media sites, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter in the 2011 Social Media Directory: The Ultimate Guide to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn Resources (Que Publishing, $19.99). In spite of the title which may give the impression it is a list of social media the book features a list of companies and their social media addresses.
The 296-page softcover book lists 3,000 sources in 15 information categories. Fifteen chapters divided by category list subcategories each one with the name of one or more organizations or companies, a description of each along with the company website and Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts when available. The main categories are: Business, computers and electronics, current events, politics, education, news, entertainment, health, hobbies, sports, travel, religion, shopping and fashion.
Riley, president, Box Twelve Communications, Inc., a content solutions company, is a former staff writer of the Los Angeles Times. He was involved for 15 years in the information technology publishing industry as copy editor, production editor, development editor, acquisitions editor, executive editor, and author. He is the author of Introduction to OpenOffice.org, and Picture Yourself Learning Microsoft Excel 2010.
