Story

aka DR4WARD - Social Media Professor at Syracuse University in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications +GoogleGlass Explorer
Introduction
My name is Bill - Dr. William J. Ward aka DR4WARD.  I'm the Professor of Social Media at Syracuse University in the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications

I am ranked one of the Top Marketing Professors in the World on Twitter by Social Media Marketing Magazine for providing useful content and consistently engaging with my followers and truly "getting it' when it comes to the best ways to use Twitter and other forms of Social Media. 

I enjoy helping connect students and pros to learn about all forms of communication and creativity. I talk about, create, and curate content on: Digital, Marketing, Advertising, Public Relations, Social Media, Journalism, Higher Ed, Innovation, Creativity, and Design. Curated global resources can be found here: DR4WARD Curated Social Media, Marketing & Digital Resources - Infographics, Slideshows, Videos, Etc.

I earned my Ph.D. in Media and Information Studies at Michigan State University and teach internationally. I participate with the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity
and have taught in the U.S., Italy, France, and China. 

When I was nine I started my first business selling night crawlers on Cowan Lake, a small, quiet lake near Rockford, Michigan where I grew up. I've been Digging for Worms ever since.

I learn, share, create, and connect with thousands of smart people globally. Some of the best places to find and connect with me are:
