Should we post our status?
Yes, in my opinion, it truly has become just that – - A SOCIAL MEDIA world. Who would have guessed that social media would ever have become so powerful? Well, maybe Mark Z had an idea or two!
When I took my first look at FACEBOOK, I was amazed at the number of businesses that had professional pages. Now, just a few short years later, I am SHOCKED at the businesses who do NOT have a presence on this platform. Truly, I was shocked as I had begun to see the impact Facebook has had on our culture and our communication practices.
I do not feel anyone can argue the power of social media and its ability to get information out to an audience. Promoting posts and advertising on Facebook have made this so easy. When I meet with a client, he/she will commonly say, ” I don’t have time”, or ” I have a FACEBOOK
page, but haven’t put anything on it in months.” Enter Mary Rau Public Relations and social media management. Businesses is good!
Social media is the way that generations are communicating. Within the next 5
years, it is predicted that e-mails will be a thing of the past and hand-held devices
will surpass the use of desktop computers and laptops.
One look at how many little kids have I-phones and you may begin to see the path being taken. We have generations coming forward who have been raised on social media and technology. It is the only way these folks are communicating. As a business today, paying attention and embracing social media is more important than ever. Get on board and get going!
