How 'bout getting rid of 'branding' and 'guru'? I've said this before a bunch o' times but you're only a guru if you're on an Ashram in India, and branding? Please--it's A TITLE not a brand. Pshaw!

 @belllindsay believeyoume, it was a tough habit to break, but you know what? It's real nice outside! And, if you really feel like it, you can take a photo via instagram to let everyone know you're out in the world! baa haa!

 @belllindsay Social media has changed my life but i'm not letting it take over my life. I still have the big three: FB, Twitter and LinkedIn. That's all that's needed for me. I like having a life outside of social media, you know??

Great post! Usually it's the opposite--people break up with FB and stay on Twitter. I just wanna know one thing though: How much social media does one person actually need??

 @manamica This youthquake is the only way to find success in the social media realm reminds me of when i worked in editing in the movie business out in Los Angeles and eventually here in Chicago.

 

Film was de riguer for years, then Avid and Lightworks were introduced and many panicked. Those of us who understood that those two (and subsequent programs like the very limited/overrated Final Cut Pro and Premiere) systems were TOOLS and that anyone with a pulse could learn how to master them. Once that happened, things settled down. 

 

Social media is not that complicated if looked at rationally and with eyes wide open. Tis a tool and can be used to its full advantage in the right hands.

Sadly, forgetting about age is easier said than done. Those hiring managers who are smart enough (and they're few and far between in this day and age i'm afraid) will look beyond age and consider the experience of the applicant FIRST. Until more HR folks adopt this habit, companies are gonna get the shaft.
