In case you’re annoyed/terrified/unsure about everything that’s been happening with updates from social media platforms—Facebook, I’m looking at you—it’s time to take a fresh look at how we approach content and social media as businesses.
And there’s no better person to have as a guest when it comes to social media than Brian Peters.
