LynetteRadio is the alter-ego of the MarTech geek Lynette Young. She's been a pioneer in social media since she began blogging in 1997. In 2006 she founded Purple Stripe Productions (now on hold due to a full-time gig she loves), a social technology and strategy firm. Lynette has worked with companies, organizations, and professionals to help them have more meaningful conversations with their customers in new and engaging ways using digital publishing platforms. She's also a makeup junkie, shoe collector, gamer geek, and fan of Doctor Who (and all things David Tennant).
