Social media and networking can be overwhelming especially when information is flying as fast as it does these days.What may seem like a bunch of companies with silly names is actually a new way to do what we have been doing in person for ages. Just more efficient and faster.
To work well try a conversation, not a lecture. Otherwise you would call it social broadcast media.It enhances and extends everyday interaction instead of regressing and replacing.Like the ocean it’s messy, disorganized & hard to control. You can drown or ride the wave.Like a fax, phone, letter or lecture It’s a tool, not an end-pointLike it or not, it’s where people spend their timeAdapted from Ed Bennett, Found in Cache
