Lois Kelly – Keeping it simple

Lois KellyIn line with our aims for The Grumpy Old Managers Guide to Social Media, I love it when I see people providing simple explanations. I also love it when a picture is used to tell the story.

So when the author of one of my favorite books Beyond Buzz – Lois Kelly of beelinelabs.com came up with this view of Social Networking and Media I had to post it … or is that share it??

It really is all about Sharing and there is not a lot more that needs to be said!

Whatever the technology, tool, strategy etc we choose we are aiming with Social Media and Networking to build a community or in Seth Godin’s terms a Tribe based around sharing.

So maybe Twitter should ask us to tell others “What do we want to share” instead of that ridiculous question – “What are you doing?”… which only serves to give newcomers the wrong impression.

Imagine how much more popular Twitter might be!!!!

No don’t … it doesn’t bear consideration.
