About this Episode

Can social media be used to make the world a better place? Can it not just improve but actually save lives? Host Rob Johnston joins Michelle from, Laura Kelly from "Team Tassy," ScareHouse Creative Director Scott Simmons, and ScareHouse Senior Manager Margee Kerr for a fast-moving conversation about twitter, Facebook, and the power of social media and social good.

They talk about social-media driven fundraising efforts such as "Meet Tassy" and our annual "Crazy Scary" (both of which benefit children and young people in need) and reveal how social media continues to grow and thrive in Pittsburgh.

Plus: a preview of Podcamp Pittsburgh, helpful advice for anyone using social media, and inappropriately long hugs!

ScareHouse, Pittsburgh's Ultimate Haunted House, has been ranked as one of “America’s Scariest Halloween Attractions” by Travel Channel and featured in multiple online and print publications including USA TODAY, Forbes, AOL News, Yahoo, Funworld, and Money magazine.
