Mari Smith, the ‘Pied Piper of Facebook’ dropped in to Carnegie College today to give students and staff advice on harnessing the power of online social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

Describing herself as a Scottish-Canadian-American Relationship Marketing Specialist, Mari was quick to spot the potential of online social networks for business use, and now offers social media consulting services all around the world.

At Carnegie College Mari offered students advice on how to use social networking to help them find employment and to widen their social network. She also offered advice on how to keep certain online information private and how to manage online contacts more effectively.

Mari is on a whilstle-stop tour of Scotland and is also attending the Edinburgh Coffee Morning on Friday 28th August before jetting home to California.

    It was a really insightful overview of how to better manage & to organise these social networks to our own specific needs and how to best go about getting the contacts you want. The wide take up of these social networks by people & business’s now means that anyone may be able to contact high profile employee’s.
