Do You Suspect the Social Media Movement Is Just a Fad?
While you might be aware of a rough concept of digital identity management for your business, are you actually taking the steps necessary to establish yours?
These days, it seems like everyone is talking about social media. So-called gurus are sprouting up everywhere, spouting off buzz words like Web 2.0, Twitter, Facebook, Blogging… But while such talk is all the rage in Internet and marketing circles, many of the rest of us are left wondering whether this is for real.. or whether the gurus have been drinking too much kool-aid.
If you’ve felt skeptical, congratulations! – you’re right.
The social media revolution cannot continue for long in it’s current form. Consider:
- The Gurus talk about the need to pump out “content”. The more information you spew out, the more search and social attention you get. However, this trend cannot continue. As more companies wake up to this idea, they will generate more and more hollow content, until most ideas just get lost in a vast sea of information.
- The Gurus talk about the need to engage prospective customers on Facebook, Twitter, etc. However, again, this trend will be self-limiting. There is a limit to how many people one can legitimately follow or friend. After a certain point, the customer suffers information overload. And when they do, who are they going to follow? There is a saturation point in terms of “social” and when it arrives, less formal relationships will be the first to go.
So if the social media revolution is self-limiting, does that mean it is useless? And where does that leave you?
