The Power (within) Social Media

Author: JLB

Published On: April 23, 2011

DiggI read an interesting article this morning.

It addresses the fact that social media is powered not by the friends you keep in touch with on a regular basis, but the acquaintances that only a social media outlet connects us to.

It’s the power to mass communicate with all of those friends of friends of friends that drives the success of these sites. That’s such a cool thought.

He gives the example of a fund raiser for a guy that got hurt in a climbing accident. A few tweets later, $2,000 has been raised to help with his medical expenses.

I took a break from Twitter after my TweetDeck stopped working. I wasn’t motivated to go back to it until recently when I was searching for inspiration for a project I was stuck on. I wanted to get my hands on some of those links that my friends of friends of friends were tweeting. Those sites that I would never stumble upon on my own. And it worked, it got me through my creative block.

I joke that Facebook and Twitter are how I ‘get out without getting out.’ As a mom, it’s almost impossible to run to a gallery or a store for a book or magazine to spark an idea. Instead, I lean on my acquaintances and the fact that they are out tweeting and posting about what it is that inspires them.

Here’s a link to the full article:

It’s remarkable working with the team that treats your business they would their own with drive, innovation, humility and a shared love of bringing great things to the wonderful Franklin & Nashville community.

“There were a number of website design companies in Nashville that would have done an adequate job for our company. The difference was that JLB wanted to be our partner and has been for 11 years. STAR Physical Therapy has been blessed to have them as a teammate.”
