The humble like. It’s the four letter word that that keeps the social media world spinning, it’s the elixir of online engagement that sends a shiver of achievement down the spine of online community managers around the world.
Social media’s an amazing connection tool. Sometimes it’s great, sometimes not, but here you’ll find my adventures in social media.
I’m over talking about social media for the sake of social media. There’s much more at play and other things that are more interesting… but let’s not rule out social media altogether.
Social media: it’s great having that back up of flicking through your past online – just in case you’ve forgotten something. But what if it isn’t there?

I have a confession – and this could change the way a lot of people think of me. If you’re offended, I’m sorry. If you’re shocked, it will pass. If you stop following me on Twitter, I understand. I just need to get this off my chest.
YES! Social media! There’s so much I can do, so many people to talk to, so many dog videos to watch and only 99 hours of Nyan Cat to go. It’s all so good – right?
