As far as Twitter is concerned the list thing never really caught my attention. It did when I realized that someone else had listed me but it didn't make me change the way I was already using Twitter. In theory, its a great addition because it makes it simple to distinguish whos who among thousands of followers. Maybe if I had a huge amount of twitter followers this would be something that interested me. Or maybe if they did like Facebook and made it to where you could privately tweet to each list of people I would use it.

Unfortunately, I don't think that Google+ will be the next big thing in social networking. I think that it will simply evolve as a search engine. For its field I think this is a great opportunity because no one else has really thought about revamping a simple search engine. I think this will mean big money for Google.

"In the classroom of social media, students become professors and professors become students." This has definitely been the case in some of my other classes. For example, two summers ago I took a public speaking and decided to do my final speech on Twitter and how to use it. My professor who was an expert at how to effectively communicate with people, had no idea how to use Twitter. Over the years Twitter has become a new form of communication and speaking with people. However, even our college professors don't know everything about it.

Perhaps the best example of this is in terms of pr is Domino's. When the video scandal came out about Domino's, the reaction from the company itself was very slow, which left people wondering, "what is this company doing about this?" However, eventually Domino's was able to come back and apologize to its customers, fire the offending people, and turn their brand around. An apology makes all the difference because you are letting someone know that you have heard their outcry, and you understand why they feel that way. Apologies validate people's feelings.

This is one of the reasons why I think Twitter has become so popular. Because it is the perfect way to engage in online conversation with a mass group of people. Through the ability to mention, hashtag, and retweet it makes it easy for people in different places, at different times to come together through cyber space to have a conversation.

This blog post was awesome! It's about time that someone has realized that Generation X and Y are not the only ones to makes mistakes in this day and age. And that, yes, even those in the baby boomer generation are guilty of ethical mistakes.

I think the best way that I have seen someone making their content work for them, is the new Linkedin website. I would imagine that Linkedin is, in some way, a spin off of Facebook. I say this because Facebook was the original website that hosts fields where users can enter in the school they graduated from, what they received a degree in, where they are locate, etc. However, the people who started LinkedIn figured out a way to evolve his into a social networking site for jobs.

Interesting, I will consider this post the next time I publicly complain about a company or service online. It never occurred to me that at a certain point, the person who's complaining about a company or ad campaign can start to come off worse than the company they are complaining about.

I have been saying for years that we control our own destiny, however, I never applied it in a business sense. However, with it becoming harder and harder for people to secure jobs, now is the time for people to start CREATING opportunities.

I need to unplug soon! And you were definitely right about delegating! I am the president of an on campus organization which could be considered to be the equivalent of running a business. I have learned that I am only one person, and I can not carry the entire organization. Delegation is needed to source out responsibility and adequately distribute work.
