    [Blog] Are you social sharing to your best advantage?
    Your blog content: If you aren’t using your corporate blog to fuel your social media strategy, you are almost certainly not as effective and efficient as you could be. If you are sharing great content on social networks that doesn’t exist on your blog or content hub, you are missing out on a huge SEO opportunity. If your content is on your blog, it will generate links and social indicators (likes, shares, +1s, etc.) Blog content is permanent  – social content is not. However, if you post the tax tip on your blog, you can re-share it year after year.
