Today, it seems that everything and anything (human or not) is social networking and broadcasting to the world. Lets take a look at this age old rhyme in a new light...
If there were ten green bottle hanging on the wall.................... and if one green bottle should accidentally fall....
1 would update LinkedIn Status "Looking for a new Green bottle to fill essential role, Location - On a Wall, remuneration - having kids worldwide singing about you"
1 would update Facebook page "Really sad at losing a friend but now I am 1 friend down on my count so anyone looking to be part of the Green Bottle brigade, speak to me"
1 would tweet " hey man - we just had a jumper"
1 would decide enough is enough and leave the wall, using all social networking tools to promote the change in work and lifestyle, hopefully getting enough of a "Value" business case and eventually land that book deal.
1 would get straight into their Wall web page and amend their SEO to make sure that anyone looking for 10 green bottles also knew that they were now a team of 9 (as well as leaving the people looking for 10 to enter their website unknowingly)
1 would update their blog with the news and increase traffic by having a new "fall" story to cover every day. (Unless they are next of course)
1 would post a video on YouTube entitled "The wall jump that went horribly wrong" (and get loads of sick comments to reply to)
1 would get onto the conference circuit to talk all about their experiences with the wall
1 would decide to leave the digital age once and for all with a permanent out of office reply saying that they no longer work on the wall and for all enquiries, please come to the wall in person to see if there are any bottles left.
and finally, the last one would have the bottle to simply stay on the wall and do what they do best trying to avoid any falls and hopefully living happily ever after.....
Wel, I was just saying............. Social Media does seem to be absolutely everywhere. Will it ever end?
