Social Media is a new phenomena.
You can now post what you're eating and where you're at.
At least that's the uninformed person's mantra.
They have not discovered the inner world of social networks.
Find some tweeters to follow who have similar interests.
Keep informed about the latest trends.
Find out who the key players are in your field.
And I believe there is a "Social Media Gap" dividing those informed and those who are not.
I like reading the newspaper each morning, so I can re-read what I read the day prior.
All my news is from Twitter.
I found out about Steve Jobs death minutes after it was reported.
Up to the date information is the future.
And those on the sidelines bragging how they don't want to broadcast their private info, are being left on shore while the ship of the future is pulling out to sea.
