The Revolution Will Not Be You Tubed

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.”
