Thank you for taking part in the 2011 STC Washington DC and Metro Baltimore Chapter's survey of social media.

We want to find out where you are, what you like/dislike, and how you are currently using social media. Please take a few minutes to let us know what social media is doing for you, right where you are, so that we can meet you there and keep in touch using the resources we already know and love.

All questions are optional and all answers are confidential so feel free to answer as many or as few as time allows and don't be shy about telling us what you really think.

1. Our Society for Technical Communication Washington DC and Metro Baltimore Chapter has many social media and internet offerings for members and non-members. Please tell us about your connection with each of these STC-related social media options.
