Amplification & the changing role of media

As more sources of news start to go direct by posting their thoughts to their blogs, Twitter and Facebook pages, a journalist’s role becomes more about deciding what to amplify and what to ignore.

Most of us are familiar with the adage by George Santayana, who, in his biography said, ”Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” You may recognize it as, “Those who ignore history are bound to repeat it.” Either way, I agree.

From external to internal – Social Business is the evolution of Social Media

Nimble Daily Drives Profitable Social Selling Opportunities

I met my husband in a Dale Carnegie Class.  We’d been in the class for weeks together without really speaking.  I only knew him from his quietly intense speeches and my sometimes envy, sometimes admiration for winning what I think is the most pens for having the best talk in the class.

We didn’t really get the opportunity to speak until session eight or so —  just over half way through the thirteen session series.  It was a short exchange “Oh, are you from Pittsburgh?…I’m from Pittsburgh!”  He said.  “Oh”  I said.  (That’s about 87 characters in case you were counting).

But the Tuesday before Thanksgiving we had a real conversation; one that started with 87 characters and has grown into the family we have today. I’m telling you this because there was a moment inside this very first exchange where I considered blowing him off and he never would have asked again.  At that point, our timeline would have ended and I would be leading a completely different life.

 

OK,  so I didn’t meet my husband on a social media exchange.  But that was twenty years ago and given the work I do and how I meet people, this same exchange could have happened on LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook or any other social media channel.   And if I wasn’t paying attention to the conversation – I would have missed a life-defining relationship.

Start. Stop. Start. Stop. Uuugh.

And this is what brings me to Nimble.  I think it was Jon Ferrara that contacted me and told me about Nimble when it first came out.   I was immediately engaged in the possibility of nurturing the thousands of relationships that were flowing past me in digital streams.  I knew that if I could master this, I would insert a powerful leveraging tool in the growth of my business and business relationships.
