An upcoming workshop for business owners will help show how to make social-networking sites work for you.

Web-Based Social Networking for Your Business will be a two-hour -- or slightly longer -- interactive workshop next Thursday at the Milton-Freewater campus of Blue Mountain Community College. Instructor Art Hill will take participants from asking about business social networking to using it.

The vehicle is being used by more businesses to reach out to customers from as near as across the street to as far as around the world. Participants should bring along basic information about their businesses, plus something they're already doing or planning that might be of interest to their customers -- a new product, service or special.

The cost is $5 for members of the Milton-Freewater Area Chamber of Commerce; $7 for nonmembers. For more information, call 541-938-7176, or register online at www.bluecc.edu .
