social media

Crystal Washington (@Cryswashington on twitter) joins Craig to discuss afroPuffs…yes afropuffs, being harassed by the TSA, tornado helmets and most importantly social media. With so many platforms popping up it can get confusing very quickly. Crystal talks platforms, strategies and maybe social media isn’t something you don’t need to be on every second of everyday.
