Yaskawa Launches Social Media

What is Social Media?

A form of internet marketing which seeks to achieve branding and marketing communication goals through the participation in various:

Social Media Networks (LinkedIn, Facebook)
Microblogs (Twitter)
Social Bookmarking (Digg)
Social Media Sharing (Flickr, YouTube)
Blogs, Forums, and News Aggregators
Each social media site can be optimized to generate awareness and/or traffic.


We are excited to launch "Yaskawa" on Twitter and would like to invite you to follow us at

Twitter is a simple but surprisingly effective and addictive way of communicating. You are restricted to 140 characters per message, but thanks to Web technology those notes can be easily written and uploaded and then shared and downloaded, making it very effective at spreading small snippets of information quickly. We will be providing quick updates on work Yaskawa is doing - highlighting an official announcement, announcing new products, or pointing out something of particular relevance - like recent videos on energy savings and MotionWorks IEC.

So if you've heard about Twitter and wondered what on earth people are talking about, come join the Yasakwa Twitter feed and try it out!
