10-Minute TechComm: Danielle Villegas on Social Media

10-minute-tech-comm-logoWhile I recently took on the role of being an interviewer, in the same week, I also was the interviewee!

Dr. Ryan Weber of the University of Alabama in Huntsville interviewed me about the role of social media in technical communications. He said one of my articles caught his eye, and he decided to contact me to include my thoughts in his series. Wow! Thanks, Ryan, for the opportunity!

We talked about the relationship between how relevant content is growing in importance in the marketing world, and how that content can be shared and discussed through social media with others.

Be sure to check out some of Ryan’s other interviews, too!
