Do you think SEO is the essence for your blog or net business? – Think again.

Below is a link to a fascinating short talk about the rise of Social Media and how it will affect our blogs and our internet businesses starting…. IMMEDIATELY.

If you are older than 35 odd years, and been on the internet for more than 5 years, you just may get a little uncomfortable with the discussion in this short presentation of how Social Media is changing things fast.

Personally, being solidly over 35 years and on the net for 13-15 years, I am on a learning curve that is giving me altitude sickness. I have been resistant to the hype for a while now, but I think back to the way I spoke about the power of the internet back in the mid 90’s and the way older people would come up with all their resistant “Well, I will never give up my daily paper”, “I would never book travel without face to face at the travel agent”, “Phones are for calling – not data”. I used to smile knowingly and say… sure (granpops)….. Just like the young do to me now when talking about social meda. Ouch.

Hope you find it useful. Please share if you have links to other developments.media cons3 300x222 Bloggers, Net Business and Social Media

      Certainly an eyeopener for me too…. Not sure where it is all heading but I have certainly raised my awareness of social media and ensuring I don’t fall behind in my understanding.

      The worst of it is I just don’t “get” facebook! Sigh!
