Have you ever had that dream, where you walk into a room full of people and realize with horror it contains everyone you have ever known?
All the jostling, incongruous parts of your life flash before you, as your brain speeds through the consequences of this squeamish event – the secrets, deceptions, indiscretions, and embarrassments that will be exposed.
But then you wake up.
That room, however, does exist. It’s called the Internet.Career, Communication, Guest Posts | Tags: chameleon strategy, facebook, online persona, Twitter, William James | Comments (15)
I have a confession to make:
I’m not 100% in love with social media.
Don’t get me wrong, social media. The time we have spent together has been great. I love the way you are able to communicate so quickly, so fluidly, so… seamlessly. And I wouldn’t trade the time we’ve had together for the world.
Oh, and we’re not breaking up. I’m not ready to leave you.
But I have noticed that our relationship has begun to change. And I can no longer avoid talking about it, lest you transform into a monster and eat me, as well as anyone else who knows you.
Using social media to lie is unfortunately easy. Here are just a few of the ways people do it.Daniel Cohen, Guest Posts, Media, Public Relations, Social Media | Tags: facebook, propaganda, Social Media, Twitter | Comments (6)
“Would you like to hang out with me this evening?”
Indeed, all of you may have been asked this question by your friends and family. But Google has completely changed the way we “hang out” with our near and dear ones.
With the advent of Google+ (G+) multi-party video chats or Hangouts, not only can we now hang out with our friends and family, but, if we like, with the Prime Minister, Finance Minister, or the President of the country.
Interesting, isn’t it?
It seems governments and their agencies and organizations have understood how powerful social media can be (Facebook, Twitter, G+) for engaging with citizens, seeking feedback, creating awareness on different initiatives, and creating a participatory model of governance.Ancita Satija, Communication, Guest Posts, Public Relations, Social Media, Twitter | Tags: Barack Obama, facebook, google, Google Hangout, Narendra Modi, P Chidambaram, Social Media, Twitter | Comments (26)
