Everyone Should be Using Google Alerts

I cannot tell you how many times my group was in the news and I was not even notified. Instead I found out via Google Alerts (a totally free, easy, and awesome provided by Google).  What is Google Alerts?

Intro to Social Media Goals, Strategies, Tactics, and Engagement
