The Social Media tidal wave is gaining momentum, are you prepared?

Thanks for your kind remarks and attention at lunch! We have much more to talk about and I hope we can do that again soon.

I created a Twitter acct: kjbrand, so I could participate in the Startup Weekend buzz. You can search for #SWI to catch the stream.

There is so much I don't understand/appreciate about this whole Soc Net thing. Conflicted may be another appropriate description. So much Attention Deficit pandering! The whole 'follow me' puts even more pressure on a 'stay connected' world. It's like e-mail isn't quick enough ;(

Stay warm!

Yes and how many years ago was it that we lived without faxes and FedEx?

It's all about exposure... I got an email yesterday from someone who gave Chris Baggot of Compendium Blogware a compliment. This email was seen ONLY by me and the sender. There was nothing confidential about the email and it was very short.

If the sender had tweeted the message -as opposed to sending it in an email- it would have been exposed to somewhere between one and three million people worldwide on twitter public timeline. You may think, so what? Who cares if someone in China sees a twitter message from me to Amy Stark giving Chris Baggot a compliment? How will this affect me and help me sell File Engine servers?

But what if Chris Baggot saw it? And he re-tweeted the message to his followers to brag a little bit about the compliment. I don't even know if he twitters, but if he does, some of his followers are local and may need a File Engine to solve their server woes. You and your product would gain exposure through Chris to a whole new cluster of people for FREE.

When I came back from our luncheon and tweeted about it, Hazel Walker and Lorraine Ball responded with compliments to you... Hazel said she liked your energy, and Lorraine agreed with me that File Engine was a great product. Just a friendly conversation that gave you exposure to my 200 followers-- and Lorraine's and Hazel's -- and another million people that may have seen it on the public timeline.

Does that make sense? I'm somewhat visual and the next time we meet I can explain it better through drawing =)

Now THAT is a better explanation than I got in my office two weeks ago....just for future reference.
