What Do These Have In Common?

What do these have in common:

  • Bill Clinton
  • Prime Time TV
  • Jesse Jackson
  • Tabloids
  • Government
  • Newspapers
  • Internet sites
  • Social Media

The list goes on and on.  All of these have pushed society’s buttons on what is acceptable.

Sex, Racism, Prejudice, Greed, Corruption, Religion, Politics, Crudeness, Aggression, Violence.

All of these things or people have pushed the limits of acceptable boundaries.  But it’s Social Media that intrigues me the most.  Why?

  • Because of it’s power to change things
  • Because of it’s ease of use
  • Because of it’s reach
  • Because it’s use is growing exponentially

Except in the corporate landscape.  People who lead big corporations are usually older, and stereotypically, unaware (and maybe intimidated) of emerging social media trends and possibilities.

Where do you fall in this mix?  And, more importantly, what do you plan to do?

So, If Obama Has a Blog….

Did you know that President Obama, and The White House, have a blog?

Seriously.

So what does that mean?

Well, to me, it means that blogging, Facebook, etc., are more common and socially acceptable than most realize.

Then, what does that mean?

I think it means that it’s also good, even critical, for business.

What I mean by that is this:  “If I have to explain the business case for blogs and other social business networking, than you have some catching up to do“.

Seriously.  Get on the bus, or get left behind.  Or at the very least, you’ll be playing catch up.

This is simply a personal opinion.  One that’s as simple as suggesting that exercising several days a week is good for our overall personal health.  That doesn’t need any explaining either, does it?
