Social Spaghetti

Twitter, facebook, foursquare, ustream, and the list goes on. So many to choose from and update. Just to make people like myself ,that work 13 hours a day, feel as if they have friends.  I’ve personally liked this blogging kick I’ve been on.  It’s an outlet that lets your own personality come out and not only be judged by the witty one-liner that popped into your head.  On twitter this morning I follow @epictweets.  She has some classic one liners. This morning she tweeted “facebooks kinda like jail.  You sit around and waste time, write on walls, and get poked by people you don’t know.”  Great stuff!! A lot of truth in humor there. Honestly,  I don’t have a personal relationship with a quarter of the people on my twitter, facebook, etc.  Its just an outlet and a tool for me to network and get to meet people from all walks of life.  Its amazing what people will share on their social network.  You get to meet their kids, parents, pets, etc.  Hell, you’ve seen the power of social spagehetti help over throw a country. (EGYPT).  Airing your laundry and pics are great, but social networking has become a very powerful advertising tool.    People are starting to view their social networks more than they watch television, live events, etc.  How many times have you been to a movie, game, etc. and have seen a person a row ahead of you updating their social network.  If you don’t see that this is a great opportunity for advertising put the crack pipe down, take the blinders off, and adapt.  Business will always be constantly be changing due to the fact people have the attention span of a nat.  So, if you don’t adapt someone else will and take your business.  So have fun with it, make new friends, but make sure when you’re eating that social spaghetti you leave some room for dessert... BUSINESS
