Recently I wrote about the surge in social media gurus and experts, and asked whether or not this title was deserved. It was a post that seemed to resonate with people, both via this blog and on Twitter. Susan Murphy, a partner at Jester Creative Inc., found the post of particular resonance. In this guest post, Susan offers her take on the subject in a hugely enjoyable spin on the whole “You know you’re a redneck when…” comedy stylings of Jeff Foxworthy. Over to you, Susan.
No matter whether you “get it” or not, there’s no denying that social media continues to grow and increase its influence in numerous areas of our lives. Personal use through Facebook; business networking through LinkedIn; contact building through Twitter. It doesn’t seem to be slowing either – if anything, more people are coming on board. Could it have anything to do with the feeling of belonging?
