An Existential Social Media Moment
(If you don’t see the video, please refresh the page.)
I’ve had many discussions this past week about social media. This isn’t all that surprising since I live and breathe the stuff. But once the conversations had ended and I went about my business walking Ruby or sweating over a late blog post, the conversation plays back in my head and I wonder if I had made any sense.
Did I give too much information?
Did I go off on a social media marketing tangent when all they wanted to know was how to set up their Facebook page?
In this video, I’m asking what you want to know about social media. What confuses you?
How can I make it all better?
I think my passion is pretty obvious. But sometimes I need to raise my head above the rim of the fishbowl to see if anyone is actually paying attention.
I mention several people in this video who I count as mentors and friends.
Here are links to their sites.
Mark Schaefer, Mari Smith (Ten Qualities of Social Media Superstars) , Brian Cormier, David Gallant
