Is Social Media a 'Fad'?

August 30th, 2009 by Gallagher John No Comments

I saw this video posted on another blog recently and wanted to share. If you have just 4 minutes, it is a GREAT snapshot of the impact of social media on our lives. I was really shocked by the data on how LONG it took for TV & Radio to gain an audience of 50 million users, compared to Facebook. Astounding.

Are you currently involved in ‘Social Media’? If not, why not? Top reasons I have heard folks tell me why they are not:
1) Don’t have time for it (250 million users of Facebook have the same number of hours in a day that you do!)
2) I don’t want to put my personal info out there – Especially in Customer Service, the question is if you are not putting it out there, who is?)
3) It’s too confusing to use – YouTube has over 100,000,000 videos(found this out in THIS video). Go there and search for How To ___________. You are sure to find it. Then, you don’t have to ’embarrass’ yourself and ask someone how!
