Complete the matrix by listing 10 social media accounts to follow—such as those on Twitter®, Facebook®, Pinterest®, or LinkedIn®—as well as blogs, topic-specific communities, and so forth. Include the name of the site, the authors, a description of the site, and the benefit of this site to your PLN.
