“We don’t have a choice on whether we do social media. The question is how well we do it.” –Erik Qualman
There are more than 500 million users on Facebook. Twitter users are sending 55 million tweets per day. YouTube has over 100 million visitors per month. 22% of time spent online is attributed to social media. It may seem crazy, but the numbers don’t lie: Social Media has not only revolutionized the way we communicate, but it has played a crucial role in dictating the way we live our lives. We’ve all been there: logging on to Facebook for “10 minutes” only to look up from our computer 3 hours later wondering what we missed in the world around us. The way I see it, we have two choices: we can either fight the obsession or we can embrace it. If you had the opportunity to make your time spent on social networking sites more valuable, would you take it?
