Accountants Get Social (Media)!

I had the privilege of speaking at the New York Accounting Technology Show and Conference this week, and, in spite of my own personal technology problems and frustrating travel delays while on this trip, it was a fantastic opportunity to touch base with members of the accounting community and share ideas. Rick Telberg, AccountingWEB blogger and founder of Bay Street Group and CPA Trendlines, and I spoke about social media tools that can be particularly useful to members of the accounting profession.

The timing was perfect as we kick off Social Media month in AccountingWEB Life. We plan on spending the month sharing tips, tools, and the latest in social media trends with our readers. Let me know If there are particular topics you hope to see covered this month, and please share your own experiences by posting comments on our articles or sending a letter to the editor.
