So this SoMe thing…it’s the future. It is the future of communications not just between us people, but between companies and people, consumers and product. Is that weird? Is there time for us to determine its weirdness before it becomes the norm and then becomes outdated?
I was listening to On Point with Tom Ashbrook (i love this show) tonight and one segment was about how texting is changing how we as individuals communicate with each other. Some people thought that it was a positive thing because it gives us time to formulate everything we say….but more often than not it’s frowned upon because people think it’s not only wrecking young people’s spelling abilities (omg u r so rite!), but it’s basically bringing our collective attention spans to 0. Before there were 30 second commercials - but now companies are lucky if you’ll read their facebook update.
On one hand companies can get a self-targeted customer base (based on likes on facebook and twitter followers) but on the other hand, how much attention are the majority of these people willing to give you and how do you go about acquiring more?
These things have been on my mind recently…how will we communicate with our worlds? are the days of legitimate conversations over?
