Episode #150 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Twist Image Podcast.
This episode is Mitch Joel going on about how he feels about social networking and the shifting landscape in media. At the same time he is talking about taking a night to go over his thoughts he talks about how amazing it is for people to just express their feelings. This podcasts expresses how everything and everyone can be linked in by all these networks. By companies and people taking advantage of them they have the ability to connect with people they may have otherwise have no access to.
This is really a great eye opener to see how many industries have scrambled to figure how to connect with people and their consumers. He talks about how great it is for companies to take advantage of these sites as well as conferences about these social network sites.
I disagree with him in several ways. Although I think it is great for a company to listen to the voice of millions on a people but I feel like it has to be done with such a high level of responsibility. Once caller speaks about apple who in his words turned their nose up at twitter and as twitter grows he doesn’t feel sorry for a company who ignored the importance with connecting with their public. I agree the caller and any company should always be open with ways to connect with potential public but as Mitch states it is important to realize this is still experimental. I believe that a few random unthought out statements may not be the concrete evidence to judge the thoughts of the masses as some may think. I totally agree with Mitch by saying we need to give it time and let evolve.
