On Wednesday, CNN published an article that may seem unusual by the standards of all the other articles I’ve highlighted on the topics of social media management and online marketing. Instead of discussing the more familiar relationship between e-commerce companies and local social media companies, it deals with the relationship between social media and college admissions.
Of course, applying to attend UCLA does not necessarily involve the work of a Los Angeles social media company. But in an increasingly social media-driven world, there are definite advantages to using a local social media company’s expertise to make yourself look more academically or professionally attractive.
