What is it and why should I care - developing a workshop

I am developing a series of workshops to help people feel more comfortable with social media - in using it for personal reasons or for business.

I’ve already launched my Intro to Twitter workshop (which is going really well and there are spaces available in three sessions - sign up, or tell your friends who need to know all about Twitter to sign up! :))

My next workshop is called “What is it and why should I care”

I often either get asked what the purpose of something is or get told it is of no value.  I agree that every tool isn’t for everyone, but sometimes you just need to hear in plain words what something is for, with some examples of why and how it can be used.

I am putting together a workshop that will do just that. I am working on a basic list of tools with descriptions and examples. My entire workbook with all the descriptions will be handed out to all students but we will go through and try out about eight during a two hour workshop.

What I want to know from you guys is - what are the tools you have questions about?  Here is the list I have so far (it’s a work in progress) but I would really appreciate your input on this!
