It’s been 10 years since the Web 2.0 conference launched 2004. We were talking MySpace back then as the behemoth, but there were plenty of emerging social tools: Flickr, Delicious, Blogs, Wikis. And I was a beta tester a few years later on a platform called TWTTR that would go on to become the engine of revolutions around the world. I knew it would be big when we experienced our first ‘twitter quake’.

We’re now in an age where it’s pretty much a given that every business needs a social presence. To not have one would be as ludicrous as not having a webpage…or a phone number even. [A stat about the adoption of online - spending, etc]

Year after year, the technology advances. Today, 30% of the world (and 56% of Americans AND Canadians) are on smart phones and that is growing by 20% each year. MySpace was left in Facebook’s wake years ago and who knows what tomorrow’s hot new platform will be.

And as the technology advances, I get really excited, but I also get really worried. Because the technology is moving quickly, but the culture is not. Or, to be clear, there IS a culture - or rather multiple cultures - that have grown and been catalyzed through the democratization of the web, but not everyone understands what is really going on here:

The web isn’t about the tools or the technology, it is about the culture.

There are 5 new rules for Digital Culture:

1. There is no mass.
2. Listening is more valuable than talking
3. When you see a parade, get in front of it!
4. Trust is the most valuable currency. To earn AND give.
5. Invest in the long term.

I gave this on June 3, 2014, in Toronto, ON, Canada at the Social@Scale Summit hosted by Air Canada, organized by Sprinklr

  40. 3 ruleS for collAboratiOn: 1.  Influence that’s transactional is fleeting. You can’t buy influence, but you can certainly build a relationship with it. 2.  These relationships are symbiotic. The new saying goes: to go faster, go together, to go further, go together. 3.  Don’t be “that guy” that crashes the party and just talks about himself. You’re more likely to be heard if you listen first (see previous rule) Tweet to: @missrogue
