Now that social media is main stream and increasingly become a part of normal daily work. oDoesanyone see a bubble forming?
It was neat when only the cool people were on but now between your family bugging you about not calling and ads showing up in friends feeds is a pull back coming? Plus the new fear a future employer running a social media background check on you.

No bubble. More like a permeable membrane.

I would say we are just cresting the peak of inflated expectations.

I definitely do think you could make that argument. My rationale for slope of enlightenment is that everyone is now beginning to realize the “power” of social media and adopting in hordes.

I think so, in a sense. I believe people are becoming a little overwhelmed. While certainly not the case for everybody, some people are definitely being turned off to social media. I don’t think there’s going to be be any big exodus from social media but I do believe it is going to plateau and decline a little bit then steady out.

+1, Corey. Too much going on. I think folks are asking: which one do I join and where do I spend my energy?

To quote Edward Tufte – “There is no such thing as information overload, only poor information design.” I think that applies to social media too. Remember why you use social media in the first place and make it work for you.
