Like that old lyric from the Disposable Heroes of Hiphopcrasy.  The social media “revolution” is here and it is upon.  But what does it all mean?  I don’t know what do you think I am some sort of expert or something?   I mean just because I have created a wed site and blog that gathers enough daily hits for national advertisers to take notice, doesn’t make me an expert. It make me persistent and borderline annoying at times.  I ingest a regular diet of SEO articles, content curation articles, and Industry best practices blogs, which only exemplifies my ADD and lack of good reading habits. Just because I utilize twitter, Facebook, blogs, videos, and podcasts (oh yeah pictures too) to create fresh mostly original content does not make me a revolutionary, it makes me really busy and some times very tired (don’t judge a man by a status that was posted 3 hrs before you woke up) 

What I am is part of the the revolution but not for the sake of just being a part.  Which is really just noise which to some is a chorus and others nails on a chalkboard.  But in reality it is just the steady hum of progress.  Progress doesn’t always look good under a microscope but when you step back and look at the big picture is an upward line.

You might Consider this a bad sign about social media  – a report from Healthday News:
WEDNESDAY, Aug. 24 (HealthDay News) — U.S. teens who use social networking sites and watch “suggestive” TV shows are more likely to use drugs and alcohol than teens with little exposure to such media, a new survey found.

However also consider this  – In a separate study done by the “Kruger” Institute:
U.S. 12 to 30 year olds who play world of war craft and drink 2 litters of Mountain Dew have high rates of virginity and widespread cases of Back Acne.

Its all how you look at it and and Social Media is a tool to use how you want.  As George Carlin said “just cause you got the monkey off you back doesn’t mean the circus left town.”
