Tap on an Avatar and see recent conversations- I like that. Improvements to Gmail rolling out.
 
Improvements to the Gmail app for Android

Over the next few days, you'll see a few improvements to the Gmail app for Android based on your feedback with more coming soon. Here are some of the highlights:

- Tapping on people’s avatars now lets you see recent conversations, contact info, and more.
-Support for non-Gmail addresses (IMAP) is now more reliable and adding additional accounts is a smoother experience.

These improvements will be rolling out over the next few days. As always, you can download the app on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.gm
Gmail is built on the idea that email can be more intuitive, efficient, and...

Excellent information and each tip has an action plan. By the way +Mari Smith will be conducting a live streaming event today, May 19. Details are in this article.

P.S. - be sure to register even if you can't attend today because Mari will record today's event.
If you’ve been feeling overwhelmed by the constant changes on Facebook and frustrated with a lack of solid results, you’re not alone. Many small to medium size business owners – even Fortune 500 companies - find it challenging to properly reach their fans and struggle to measure real monetary

Quick video tip from me to you. How to create a Word labels mail merge from names and addresses in a Microsoft Access database. Easy. 

P.S. - I will be the guest speaker for All Things Admin on May 5 and 12. It's all about mail merge. You know there is much to learn when I do two 60 minute Webinars. Details at: http://www.mostraining.com/events #IAAP   #MicrosoftTraining   #AllThingsAdmin

As I speak at events and teach to various companies, I am finding that more and more companies are assigning the task of social media management to Administrative Assistants. It's certainly a role with a learning curve and one that I hope companies will provide training. On that note, I am excited to be speaking on this timely topic online live on April 2, 2015.

Administrative Assistant to Social Media Manager Learn what is needed to begin the management of your company’s social media channels.  Social media has become a ‘must-have’ for companies big and small.  Many are assigning the task of  social media management of their company’s online presence to their Administrative Assistants.  This can be a daunting task and it’s easy [...]

Story
Tagline
We help business grow with social media and office technologies.
Introduction
Speaker, Consultant, Teacher and Writer

My passion has always been teaching and speaking about business and marketing technologies. In 2004, I opened MOSTraining, Inc., providing corporate productivity training in Microsoft Office. As technology grew so did MOSTraining, which now provides training in Mobile, Office and Social technologies. 

When social media appeared on the horizon, I began to learn all that I could and implement it within my own company. I started first with LinkedIn and then quickly moved into the use of other social platforms for marketing. As I learned, I applied it within my own company. It was a natural fit to add social media marketing to the companies offerings.

I come from a family of entrepreneurs, which started with my Dad who owned his own building company and a retail store. One brother started a local magazine, a sister who opened her own business and another brother is a master at building furniture and has his own business. 


Bragging rights
I won a blogging contest that www.SocialMediaExaminer.com ran in 2011, that landed me the opportunity to write a book review for their online magazine.
