One of the great things about social media is that I’m able to follow along while my friends are at a variety of interesting conferences and gatherings across the country. Today, I’ve been keeping up with my friend Misty Mathews (@mistymathews) while she attends the Southern Public Relations Federation conference in Destin, Fla. Misty is the Communications Specialist for the University of Alabama’s College of Communication and Information Science—my alma mater!
 
The line up of speakers has been great so far, with Misty sharing some fantastic tips for university communicators from Peter Shankman and Arik Hanson. You should all give Misty a follow for more insights, but for now I wanted to share some of my favorites.
