    Show; Don’t Tell: The Physical Therapist's Guide to Visuals on Social Media

    In college, I took my fair share of creative writing courses, and every instructor’s favorite prescription for effective writing was, “Show; don’t tell.” Now, as I examine the evolution of social media, those words ring even truer than they did when I was scribbling my way through sonnet stanzas. The Dawn of Visual Social Media According to Socially Sorted , Pinterest is now the second highest driver of all Internet traffic from social media sites, and YouTube …

But, it’s a great opportunity to showcase this amazing profession on a bigger stage.

Because when you strip away all of the fancy-schmancy logos and taglines, your “brand” is really just the way your audience feels about you and your business.
