Its getting really simple. I think this is my new world view

The friends of my enemy are my enemy.the enemy of my friend is my enemy. The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.

Social Media Lesson I have learned (so far)

I have learned a great deal about social media with this twitter experiment; the primary lesson is that it really isn’t social or media

Social Media lesson #2 is that it pretty much is self serving… an inexpensive way to garner attention and recognition

social media lesson breaks down to this; these are not friendships or not even networking opportunities they are merely ghosts

Social Media lesson #4, there is far more noise now then there is information; that the only real prompt to move forward is to network IRL

Social Media Lesson #5.. With the advent of klout and ocial media ROI tool. youre placed on a treadmill work or your roadkill.

Social Media #6 We have met the enemy and he is us (apologies to Pogo)

Social media #7.. it will take a long time for Social Media to truly become useful; unless you are writing books on the subject

Social Media #8, If you’re anti social…. you probably shouldn’t try to work within social media
