Social Media Revolution

leave a comment »

Since I wrote about this last week in relation to faculty engagement of social media, I thought it would be timely to share the most recent YouTube offering on the Social Media Revolution – – it asks the important question ” Is Social Media a Fad?”

Social Media no longer falls under the “other duties as assigned” or a spare time bonus to what we do as communicators. More and more, positions are being developed as social media specialists.  Such an emphasis is placed on being able to communicate your message using a variety of methods and to access our users where they live.  This latest video offering makes us sit up a little straighter in our chairs, type a little faster and surf a little deeper in the World Wide Web to familiarize ourselves with SM platforms with which we’re not yet familiar.

The first video link is the longer version at about 4 1/2 minutes.

If you don’t have that much time to view, choose the second link – a shorter version at only 2 1/2 minutes.

And if you would like to see the stats in print, look at the Socialnomics Blog.
