Chris Brogan made some interesting comments in his blog this week about social media. He talked about the Twitter search and he talked about us being “facilitators” to companies. So can we say that we help social media, or do we have to admit that it helps us?
Twitter search can find just about anything you are looking for. Everyone knows that Twitter is a big time social media that is commonly used by just about anyone. Businesses, bloggers, students and regular people use Twitter to get equipped with what is going on around them. It is a helpful tool to stay up to date on trends as well. To effectively use Twitter, you need to know how to use the search engine it provides. Brogan says that you can find out anything you want; you just have to type in key words that will help trigger a response.
Many people think that social media only helps us, but social media would not be as popular if we were not using it effectively. So, we also help social media. We have bloggers, such as Chris Brogan, and we also have sites such as Twitter and Facebook that people use as a social media. Brogan has helped show that social media is important, but it is interesting to know that we are just as, if not more important to social media.
So yes, we do help social media, and it helps us too. It is a lot like a relationship in the fact that you have to give a little and take a little to make it last. Play around on Twitter, and get your mind working. Have fun with social media, it’s there for you to receive instant notifications.
