Social media has been the subject of this blog more times than I can count. We’ve covered everything from terrific and terrible Twitter hashtags to playing nice on Facebook and the impact of integrating social media channels to reach a wider audience.
Our use of these tools is very strategic and we like to consider ourselves social media savvy.
Since social media plays such a prominent part in our outreach it seems we are constantly reading and researching the subject. Normally this makes my job a lot of fun and it definitely keeps me on my toes. However, as I sat in a brainstorming session with a coworker, I thought: if I have to read one more article about the phenomenon that is Pinterest or how great Google+ is – I will SCREAM!
Don’t miss understand, I think social media is fantastic. It’s become such a part of modern communications culture that it’s difficult - if not impossible - to be successful in any business without it. I just wonder where it stops. No matter how big social media becomes it can’t completely replace real, live, in-person interaction.
We’ve all heard of the glass ceiling of the professional world. What about a social media ceiling?
At some point we have to say, enough social media; time for real, live socializing. Where is your social media ceiling?
