WordPress as a Digital Hub/Home

This is the last meetup presentation of 2012. Next month we will be having our annual holiday party.

You're a blogger, you use WordPress and you own your blog posts. However, you also use other social media tools, but how much of that data do you really own?

This session will look at using WordPress as your 'Home on the Web', and how you can get control over your data. We will focus on using the Keyring plugin as a connection point to other services, and make sure you own as much of your own data as possible.

This session is for Beginners, intermediate users. Depending on the audience, Beau can get technically deeper towards the end.

Powered by high-performance, proprietary technology and predictive data analytics, the company offers a full suite of services that expand audience engagement and increase the average revenue per customer, seamlessly meshing businesses goals with a company’s social media strategy.


As always, we'll have some geniuses on hand to help you get answers to your WordPress questions.

    Good presenter, has to get used to a more agressive NY presentation style, but excellent information and knowledgable speaker.

    Looking forward to this. I had the pleasure of attending WordCamp NYC and meeting some of you. I'm in NYC for November but most often at my base in Hawaii. I build WordPress sites on the Genesis framework for clients and teach social media for business at the University of Hawaii. Social and WordPress integration is one of the best reasons to choose WordPress.
