The evolving social media tools represent a new opportunity to interact with customers in new ways. Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google Buzz are some of the leading examples today. While none of these sites will drive traffic to you immediately, they all have the potential to become strong opportunities for lead generation, targeted advertising, and two-way communication between you and your customers.

Whether it is Facebook, Twitter, or the next “big thing”, xlrINT can assist you in the creation and management of your accounts and your “image” within each of these tools.
