If there’s one thing social media is good at, it’s garnering support for something quickly.
Louisville, Ky. (PRWEB) February 22, 2010
A new article posted on the Strategic Social Networking blog highlights how social media is a part of fans' efforts to save Louisville independent music store Ear X-Tacy, http://www.earx-tacy.com/.
"Social Media to Ear X-Tacy's Rescue," http://ssnblog.com/2010/02/social-media-to-ear-x-tacys-rescue/, details how fans reacted to a press release about Ear X-tacy woes and started a campaign on Facebook in an attempt to save the store.
"If there’s one thing social media is good at, it’s garnering support for something quickly," Sam Hartman wrote. "With causes spreading quickly through social networks, this record store could reap the benefit of the new social age in which we live if it continues to ride the wave and reinvent itself through social networking."
