Find Me On.. Where?!?!

Social Networks

Maybe we have too many social networks.

I mean, think about it. Facebook and twitter. Instagram and Vine. Quora and Google+. Yelp and Foodspotting. And on and on and on.

You need a scorecard just to keep up, and an entire afternoon just to be remotely relevant on any more than one on two.

I’ve read more than one article this week about younger people rejecting Facebook.

And Peter Shankman this week opened up a storm of controversy when he predicted Yelp! would be out of business in two years.*

I think it’s just a matter of time before more people are migrating to something else. Who knows what that is. But if I’m feeling that way, I can promise you, it’s already happening.

I must have more than 100 apps on my iPhone. Truth is, I don’t think I use half of them. And I have no plans to.

So I’m opening this up for discussion, because I am really interested in what you think: which social networks/apps are becoming less relevant? Which should I close out or delete, and which should I keep? Which do you use on a regular basis and why?

I don’t want to hear any brand-bashing. This is not meant to take jabs at anyone. I’m just really interested in what others are thinking.

Worth Repeating Friday ShareDay


[tweetmeme source=”jodyfisher”only_single=false

Fun week, y’all?

Mine was spent trying to not get repeatedly interrupted and thrown off course with projects that needed doing. And I was not as successful as I hoped I would be. Oh well. Monday will come soon enough.

So let’s get to the reason we’re here: Friday ShareDay!

All of us in social media preach this gospel sooner or later (and likely, more than once). This time it’s my friend Peter Shankman, and from his vacation in Italy, no less!

So check out this post about how your network is weak, and try not to cry.

Happy Friday!

Short Week Friday ShareDay

Let's Be Happy

Even though the President’s Day Holiday provided a short week for many of us, was yours less busy? Mine sure wasn’t!

I wanted to take a quick moment to say thanks to you for reading the blog on a regular basis and sharing it with your friends and co-workers. I’ve noticed a real spike in traffic in the last three months, like something has really struck a nerve with you. I really appreciate the support you have shown and love reading and responding to your comments.

In that spirit, let me know if there’s something you want to hear or talk about – I’m happy to entertain write-in topics!

Speaking of engaging with your audience, here’s a great Friday ShareDay tidbit from our buddy Peter Shankman on Better Engagement. Thanks Peter!

Happy Weekend!
