Social Media Why Should You Care

  1. 1. Social media Why should YOU care?
  2. 2. Content, communities, collaboration, complexity,... chaos? Zzzz
  3. 3. We are not experiencing information overload, we are experiencing filter failure. Clay Shirky
  4. 4. Some people are intimidated by it. But it’s not rocket science.
  5. 5. Give it a chance. You’ll soon get the hang of it!
  6. 6. There is a lot of variety. Don’t try all the flavors at once.
  7. 7. It’s not the heights, it’s the open space…
  8. 8. First things first: let go of your futile urge to control.
  9. 9. Go on have a chat with the world. It’s free and you can do it any time.
  10. 10. Not netgen? Don’t worry the digital natives are a social bunch.
  11. 11. Face it. You’ll start off as a tourist.
  12. 12. Mix and mingle with the natives! Listen and learn.
  13. 13. Who knows, you might end up immigrating and helping others bridge the gap to the world of social media.
  14. 14. Swamped? Let’s see if we can do #SoMe-thing to help.
  15. 15. Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man how to fish; you have fed him for a lifetime. Teach a man how to use the net; he will be able to tell his story and teach others.
  16. 16. Tools of the trade.
  17. 17. Build a presence. Do #SoMe Thing!
