Where do you tweet from? Your home computer? Your phone? What about….. outer space?!
In 2009 astronaut Mike Massimo made the first ‘out of this world’ tweet. Today NASA broke a new social media ‘first’ by checking into foursquare. Astronaut Douglas Wheelock checked into the international space station, unlocking the “NASA Explorer Badge.”
Don’t worry, if you want your own space explorer badge, NASA’s foursquare page lists venues that you can explore here on Planet Earth.
Social media is reaching new heights all the time. Some business owners have asked me exactly who they would reach using social media. Some long time small businesses have just settled with who they could reach placing basic ads in their local paper and word of mouth. My advice? Don’t settle! There is a world of costumers out there who don’t know about your product (or services).
Who knows, maybe one day someone in a space station will stumbleupon your website and help spread the word!
