Episode 21: Linda Hoang

lindahoangMeet Linda Hoang, the self-described “social media lady” behind linda-hoang.com and the online identity @lindork.

Oh my goodness, did we ever laugh a lot in this interview. Linda is irrepressibly happy and funny, and you are going to hear the evidence of that in spades.

Linda has been living out loud ever since she was a kid, and she’s learned a lot about how to be online in an authentic and effective way. You’ll hear much solid advice in this episode. We also talk about what it has been like to switch from journalism to communications, and her many future plans, including the next iteration of the Edmonton International Cat Festival.

Linda is @lindork on Twitter and Instagram, and (tragically, as you’ll hear) lindorkyeg on Snapchat.

You can also get it on SoundCloud, in iTunes, or on Stitcher.

Linda mentioned MasterMaq and Only Here for the Food, but wanted to focus her recommendations on Instagrammers:

And don’t forget to check out the Snapchat session Linda is doing with Tyler Jack Butler at the iMedia social media conference in March.
