Now Open: Social Media School

A great resource for everyone trying to learn about social media is the just-launched Social Media School from the folks at Social Media Today.

In the announcement, notes that site is for experienced users and newbies alike: “Whether you’re an entrepreneur, a blogger or a new adopter from the corporate world practical knowledge for everyday social media applications is the key to building a strong foundation for success. That’s why we created Social Media School.

More ways to go to “school” on social media were recently offered by Dave Evans at Click Z Network in his piece, “Getting an Affordable Social Media Education.”
