Thanks for going to my talk and being seemingly forgiving with the spastic slideshow. If you’ve landed here I hope it’s because something in tonight’s discussion piqued your interest. There are plenty of details and anecdotes I didn’t get to during our session, so if you should feel so curious, click on any of the below and learn a little bit more.
- For Christmas, I got a new job. I got my job through Twitter.
- Twitter: Makin’ normal people famous and famous people normal. How I “met” the author of Free Food for Millionaires. (Book review.)
- Barry Libert’s Social Nation. How businesses are becoming more social, with a lot of cracks at a poorly written business book.
- In England, “social media gurus” are considered vampires. I just call them douchebags. Be careful. Not everyone likes “social media” people. Remember the snake oil I was talking about?
Final notes: If you’re interested in a social media job, know that it is not a 9-to-5 gig. You’ve pretty much got to be on all day, every day. I also rather conveniently forgot to mention that if businesses actually do become increasingly social in their own internal connections, I have a feeling a job like mine will not exist in five years. (I should also note that my current job does extend well beyond Twitter, Facebook, and blogging, but that’s a story for another day.)
I hope that I was informative and somewhat entertaining, and encourage you to keep in touch!
P.S. Presentation slide show here. Unfortunately I mainly use slides as queues so there isn’t a ton of “meat” on there. And you’ll never get to hear why I included a throwback picture of 90210. Whomp whomp.
