Social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin are a complete waste of time to business professionals!  I remember hearing this statement a few months ago from a branding expert.  I immediately looked around the room and felt sorry for all the businesses who might actually follow this advice.  It’s shocking when you realize Social media wordcloud glowingjust how many supposed marketing and business experts still turn their head at the value of social media.  Clearly they just do not understand or do not want to take the time to understand the benefits of social media for business.

The Biggest Social Media Myth

by Lemon Drop on September 10, 2010

Social media has created a competition of artificial relationships and in doing so created the impression that having more contacts, followers, or friends on a social media network means that person has more influence. Makes sense right? I once met a witty man with a shirt stating, “Facebook Friends: 500, Real Friends: 2.” Once you stop laughing, I should draw your attention to the fact that this actually matters for business. Watch this week’s Social Media Minute as Alan Underkofler explores this social media myth a bit further:

Improve Your Social Media With a Droid or iPhone

by Lemon Drop on September 3, 2010

“I just got a new iPhone today!” “Oooh, ahhhh!” the room replies. Yes, iPhones may seem to be the new expensive toy on the block but it is also a very important social media tool. So if it wasn’t you with the opening statement, “I just got a new iPhone” then you are out of the loop! And this is a loop you can’t afford to be out of!

In case you were unaware, iPhones and Droids have access to all the social media sites that a computer would have, but it has the convenience of size. Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, YouTube, and even your email are all at the tip of your fingers- literally!

Social Media MADE “The Guild” Succeed!

by Lemon Drop on August 24, 2010

This year at the famous San Diego Comic-Con I was given a mission to seek out Felica Day and the other cast members of “The Guild.” Admittedly, I had no idea what the show was about or why it was important until I got to the booth. As it turns out, I’ve been missing out! “The Guild” is especially interesting because the show is an online Felica Day, Creater and Main Character of The Guildseries!
