Re-printed here on GovLoop in its entirety:
As I talk with others about social media and the power of it, there are certain phrases or concepts I find myself repeating often. I
thought I’d turn these into a blog. Perhaps you’ll find them useful or
challenging or even insightful. I can’t claim every one is original,
but before you turn one of these quotes into a t-shirt, bumper sticker, coffee mug, your life-changing new mantra, or even your own blog post, an acknowledgement would be nice. Okay, here we go (in no particular order):
Social media is supposed to be social.
You get out of social media what you put into it.
Social media shouldn’t be just about your agenda.
Social media doesn’t change your personality.
Social media is about access to people.
Social media allows you to be in places/at events where you would not otherwise be.
Social media is not the end result; it should still result in a real-world connection.
Social media is not a cure-all.
Social media still takes people.
I welcome your feedback and additions.
