There is no denying the power and influence that social media has on society and business. Social media has turned the planet into one community, connecting the world by providing information instantaneously—whether you use a computer, a tablet or smartphone.

Billions of people use it to stay connected to friends and family or to follow news, celebrities, politicians, companies and industries. In a recent article, social media has grown from just being the latest shiny new toy to being a powerful tool that is integral to gathering news and telling stories.

Blogs, LinkedIn and YouTube have become important avenues for companies to connect with its customers, business partners, employees and media. Can you think of one person or company who isn’t using social media?

Today, CommScope is expanding our reach by launching our first Twitter account (@CommScope). I encourage all of you to join our Twitter community. This account will engage you with insightful topics and ideas, as well as keep you informed with the latest CommScope news. Who knows, you just might learn something new about CommScope or the industry.

In addition to our Twitter page, continue to follow us on LinkedIn, YouTube, Flickr and, of course, here on CommScopeBlogs.com.

We look forward to striking up a Twitter dialog with you.
