WE ALL DO IT. Sneak onto Facebook and Twitter in the middle of doing our work. Well here is something to make you feel less guilty about it. Make it …. productive… (GASP!!…FACEBOOK, TWITTER PRODUCTIVE???) How, you ask? Use Facebook and twitter not only as a tool for stalking people, but as a place where you can get updates on what is going on in the advertising and design industries. Here are some great pages to follow. Also, I’d suggest following any wishful future employers, and getting up to speed on what is happening in their agency or firm. This could give you a leg up during the interview!
