SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE NEW DIGITAL WAY OF WORKING IS THE FUTURE : THE EDITOR’S ADVICE.

SO, SPRING HAS SPRUNG AND WE’RE FINALLY EDGING INTO SUMMER…

THINGS TEND TO BUSY UP AT THIS TIME OF THE YEAR, AND BETWEEN WEDDINGS AND BARBEQUES, LONG WEEK -ENDS , HOLIDAYS AND PARTIES WE STILL NEED TO FIND A FEW HOURS EVERY SINGLE DAY TO CHECK ON OUR DAILY EMAILS AND MESSAGES !

I WON’T COMPLAIN ABOUT THAT BECAUSE I FIND IT EXCITING AND FANTASTIC TO KEEP UP WITH CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS SOCIAL MEDIA…

WE ALL KNOW THAT SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE NEW DIGITAL WAY OF WORKING IS THE FUTURE AND NOBODY SHOULDN’T JUST AIM TO BE KEEPING WITH IT BUT ON THE CONTRARY EVERYBODY SHOULD BE ENGAGING WITH IT AND EMBRACING IT.

SOCIAL MEDIA BY ITS VERY NATURE IS AN IMMEDIATE AND CONSTANT CHANNEL OF COMMUNICATION AND FAILING TO MAINTAIN A PRESENCE CAN BE MORE DETRIMENTAL BUSINESS WISE THAN NEVER GETTING STARTED.

THE BLURRING OF PERSONAL AND PRIVATE LIVES IS EMPHASIZED THROUGH SOCIAL MEDIA.

AS A MATTER OF FACT MOST SENIOR DIRECTORS AND CORPORATE PEOPLE USE SOCIAL MEDIA PRIMARILY FOR PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING WHILE GRADUATES TEND TO USE IT FOR SOCIALISING.

THIS MAKES SITES SUCH AS LINKEDIN GOOD FOR HIGHLIGHTING SENIOR POSITIONS, WHILE FACEBOOK IS A BETTER PLATFORM FOR POSITION GRADUATE AND INTERN POSIITONS.

SOCIAL MEDIA IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS, GOOD FOR CORPORATE LIFE,  GOOD FOR KNOWLEDGE SHARING AND EDUCATION.

SO  MY ADVICE HERE IS TO JUMP IN WITH BOTH FEET AND GET ON TWITTER, LINKEDIN AND FACEBOOK  : YOU’LL SOON FEEL A LOT MORE IN TOUCH !

SOCIAL MEDIA IS NETWORKING AND NETWORKING IS LIFE !
