Manchester, NH (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
When it comes to raising kids, advancing a career or marketing a business, the World Wide Web and Social Media can be a great asset or a fatal flaw. Many parents are unaware that girls are twice as likely to be bullied on Facebook as boys. Job seekers should know that 89% of companies use social media to support their recruiting efforts. Many business owners don't realize that Google makes more than 8,000 adjustments to its search algorithm every year. The web is a complex, fast moving machine and a firm grasp of how it works can prevent disaster and help you achieve your goals more quickly.
These are the topics of discussion that will be featured on the new Web Savvy segment to be featured every Thursday morning at 6:40AM on the Girard at Large program, which is broadcast on 90.7 FM WLMW in Manchester, NH. Jon DiPietro will demonstrate his knack for making technology accessible and understandable. Parents will learn how to keep their kids safe online. Job seekers will find out how to take advantage of social media to maximize their career development opportunities. And business owners will discover tips and tricks for finding more customers online.
Jon DiPietro is a Certified Inbound Marketing Professional and author of "Social Media for Engineers and Scientists." He is the Founder and Principal of Domesticating IT, an inbound marketing blog and consultancy and co-founder of CareerGravity.com, an educational website that teaches job seekers how to market themselves online.
"I'm really looking forward to joining Rich Girard every week and talking about Google, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and whatever the latest, greatest developments are on the web," DiPietro said. "I think that that social media is often overhyped and frequently underestimated at the same time. I hope to separate fact from fiction and give people a better understanding of how to use these tools for their own benefit."
Girard at Large host Rich Girard commented, "Jon's personality comes right through the radio making him an interesting 'listen.' Even better, his genius on the subject is matched by his ability to make it simple for non-technical guys like me to get it and that's very important in today's day and age. Jon's a great addition to our adorable little radio show and we're proud to have him in the line up!"
Broadcast on WLMW 90.7 FM New Hampshire Family Radio, the Girard at Large show's mission is simple; to connect local people, places and things. “News from our own backyard” is their motto. Led by Manchester native Richard H. Girard, a widely recognized and respected local public figure, Girard at Large is a unique program that not only discovers and uncovers what’s happening within the Greater Manchester area, but also gives its audience the opportunity to share what it knows.
