Social media is an integral part of business these days. In the agriculture world, people use it to share everything from what’s happening in the fields to the board rooms, and it’s essential to communicating and sharing information about your business. Using social media though isn’t easy and having a social media strategy is important, but what should your corporate account look like and should you police what your employees’ post?
On the June 15 episode of Seed Speaks we’re taking a closer look at social media strategies and what you can do to stay on top of it. We’re joined by Charles Tweed, owner of Tweedia, and Crystal Mackay, founder and CEO of Loft32, to discuss if your social media policy is up to snuff.

Tweedia is based in Brandon, Man. and is a thought leader in social media, working with some of the largest brands in the agricultural, energy and construction sectors in North America. Tweed has worked as an emcee, play-by-play voice, journalist, photographer, social media coordinator and keynote speaker for organizations such as the Northern Seed Trade Association.
