Alan Wolk & New York Times Describe Social Media’s Defining Moment

If you haven’t read Alan Wolk’s blog The Toad Stool, he wrote a post this week that should be your reason for visiting.  The post is in response to an article in the New York Times called “Brave New World of Digital Intimacy” by Clive Thompson.  Alan sums up why you should read the article by writing:

It’s probably one of the most important articles anyone associated with the digital world can read, since it will be talked about by people outside of our world for years to come, and may actually mark the very moment that social media goes mainstream.

Those are bold words….but Alan is dead-on.  This article is one of the most impactful I have read in a long time.  It reminds me of when I first heard people talking about the writings of Malcolm Gladwell.  So get over to Toad Stool and read his thoughts and then read the whole article over at the NYT.

    Thanks for pointing out this extrememly insightful and thought provoking article. It makes you think how far we have come as people with our interactions and how much we have to learn as marketers about the people we are “talking to.”
