Why should you follow International Council of Shopping Centers?If your work is affected by retail real estate, we can’t think of a good reason why you wouldn’t follow ICSC. Unlike many organizational twitter accounts, ICSC does more than tweet about its upcoming conferences. It shares the latest retail news and research. The organization is truly a thought leader in the social media space.  It recently launched The ICSC Social Media Pavilion at RECon 2011 and due to the positive response, the initiative will launch at several other regional events. Attendees learn how social technologies are applied in retail real estate and shopping centers.

Now its time for you to stop reading and get tweeting! Check out these tweeters and make sure you follow @hartmansimons.com. Happy Friday!
