Are You Plugged In
It's a fast paced Social Media world out there. Are you plugged into all the Web 2.0 networking sites? Some people I have talked to recently are saying "I don't know how I could live without Facebook or Twitter." But, we did live without them not that long ago. Technology is changing and it is creating a whole new world for the Social Media scene.
Now, everywhere we go, most people have a phone in hand or some other tech gadget they are keeping close by. The greatest part of this is though, whenever something happens, we don't have to wait and hear it on the 6:00 evening news. We get real-time results with Facebook and Twitter as people are constantly updating their statuses on both sites. So if you are not plugged in, then you are missing out. I am not saying you have to be on the social media sites all day and all night, but it is great to use as a networking tool.
Many brands in the real world are also jumping on board by creating a Facebook Fan page or creating a Twitter profile for their specified brand. This is great news for us in the general public as we can keep in touch with our favorite brands and get some awesome deals that otherwise we may not see in the paper or magazine if we do not subscribe to print materials. Most brands now are doing daily or weekly deals that are posted exclusively on their Facebook and Twitter pages. If you are not plugged in, you are going to miss out. Just last week Vera Bradley was posting HUGE deals, Subway was posting 20% sub deals, and Nabisco was giving away free cookies only for their Facebook audiences.
Now is the time to dive into technology. Technology is only going to keep moving forward at this point. There is no turning back, so go ahead and get your hands wet now before technology advances even further. If you have any questions at all, feel free to leave comments here and I will be happy to help you. By asking your question, you may be able to help someone else as well that is afraid to ask the same question. I can create a video or even write a blog post. Come on and get plugged in!
