EDITOR'S MEMO: Get Connected with ASI!

June 1, 2009
The monthly roundup from Editor Teresa McPherson.

Social media spending in the U.S. is forecast to increase from $716 million this year to more than $3.1 billion in 2014, a 34% compound annual growth rate, Forrester Research recently reported at the Forrester Research Marketing Forum.

A recent survey we conducted in our weekly ASI E-News found that the adhesives and sealants industry is once again keeping up with the trends. More than 60% of respondents said that they use LinkedIn and nearly 40% use Facebook.

Here at ASI, we’re excited to be a part of the social networking realm. In addition to the Editor’s Blog on our homepage, www.adhesivesmag.com, you can find us on Facebook®, connect with our staffers on LinkedIn, and keep on top of industry trends and news with our Twitter feeds.

In addition, keep us updated with what you’re doing by sending a tweet to me @TeresaASI.
