Let's Get Social!

Social media...whether you are an avid social media user, or you just get on to see how your friends/kids/grandkids are doing, we can probably all agree that social media is here to stay, and that a large portion of our population uses social media very regularly.  But what does that mean for you and your farm or agribusiness?  How can you use social media to "ag"vocate?

No doubt social media is becoming one of the most popular ways for people to connect now, and however you feel about that, it presents some great opportunities to help promote not only your farm, but agriculture in general.  Social media is a free tool; one you aren't required to spend any money to use; but if you are going to utilize it to promote agriculture it will take a little bit of time.


Agweb shared a great article with "4 Tips for Effective Social Media" that we wanted to share with you!  It includes tips on sharing your  successes - and failures - but most importantly your passion, networking, and much more!  You can check out the whole article here.  

As you explore "ag"vocating on social media, feel free to include the Knowledge Center as a part of your network and community!  We are passionate about all types of agriculture and sharing information with both producers and consumers!  You can find us on Facebook, Twitter, and Farm Credit of the Virginias is also on Pinterest!  Happy socializing!
