A Profound Thought

Ideas are starting to roll in on social media. Thank you!

A question that is consistent among my friends and colleagues in the social media space is, "why is it so hard to convince others (non-users) of the value of social media?" While I do not have an answer for this yet, one reader likened the current adoption stage of social media to the Internet circa 1993. Here is what he had to say:

"My father's business doesn't allow people to go on Facebook during work hours. That's an example of not 'getting it.'

It also sounds a bit like 1993 or so, Mosaic and the birth of e-commerce. Employees were not allowed to browse the Internet while at work. Funny to consider that now."

Will we look back one day and consider it funny that not every company had Twitter?
