The Sustainability Of Social Media
The Sustainability Of Social Media

Rumor has it there is an advertising executive in my hometown of Louisville who, five or six years ago, said, “The Internet is a fad.” While I’m not sure if he’s changed his perspective, I wouldn’t doubt if he hasn’t. Not to put words in his mouth, but I can hear him saying, “Social Media is a fad,” in similar tones.

There are probably a lot of people who might agree with that sentiment. They don’t believe in it. They feel it’s overrated. Their commonality is they don’t understand the power of social media, or fear it. They’re lost in the technology and tools. They don’t see the communications channel. They think about Twitter and not about customer service. They see anonymous bastards ruining the comments sections of our newspaper’s websites and not the wealth of learning and interaction happening on sites that hold their readers accountable.

Someone asked me this week why I love social media. I think the answer is something these curmudgeons should hear.

I walked into the Pikeville High School lunchroom on April 8, 1990 and sat at the end seat of a long, white lunch table. I stared down at my rectangular pizza and sighed. More than anything, I wanted to curl up in a distant corner closet, away from the world, and hide. The day before I had done one of those stupid things 17-year-olds do. It’s funny if you get away with it. If you don’t, you become a social pariah, particularly in a small town because if they talk to you, they’re consorting with the leper.

No one talked to me that day. The whole day.

“There’s no loneliness like being lonely in a crowd.”

David LaMotte – “Northbound” from “Corners

Fortunately, the cruelty of immature social norms wears off as we get older. We realize people make mistakes. We forgive easier.

Today I can turn to my social networks when I’m feeling depressed, sad, confused, excited, elated and immediately find comfort, reassurance and acknowledgement. The kids are all still sitting at the lunchroom tables, but they’re no longer unwitting assailants of our confidence, our emotions. No, it’s not a big happy love-in, but extending your networks extends the possibility of compassion.

People need compassion.

But the emotional safety net our social networks provide isn’t the only reason social media is sustainable. Social media is a method of communications. It is not unlike the telephone, email (which I would argue is social media in ways), television or letter writing. It’s just new which means people don’t see the commonalities and believe in the long-term viability of something they see as a trend.

Instead of trying to wrap your brains around how Facebook or Twitter or blogs will be used 10 years from now, think about how you connect or communicate with your customers, your employees, your friends. Think about the opportunities you’re missing, the roadblocks in the way of true connection or productivity or the reach of your messaging and how you can use communications mechanisms to improve results. Social media offers a variety of tools, technologies, mechanisms and platforms to help you.

Will social media become some industry all of its own? No. It will prove to be another channel of communications or set of tools to aide in communications that become folded into the mechanisms we use today. Those who embrace it will thrive. Those who do not, will. They will when they realize how foolish it is to not.

Shannon Paul said something to me recently that resonates with this topic. When referring to job titles she said that she doesn’t want the term “social media” in hers because it boxes her in and incorrectly labels her skill set. Shannon is a communicator, marketer, public relations professional, writer and smart business person. Being a “social media” something, in other’s perceptions, disqualifies her from the world of expertise she brings to the table.

I would push that line of thinking farther and say we shouldn’t think of social media as it’s own department, discipline or specialty. We should integrate it into the overall marketing and communications efforts of our organizations. It should be included as a component in internal communications, crisis communications, investor relations, customer service and marketing communications. Social media should be ubiquitous … natural.

But we’ve all got to buy in and understand for that to happen. We have a long way to go.

I believe we can get there. I believe we will. I have to maintain hope.

That long, white lunch table isn’t a place I want to be again.

    My philosophy of communications has always been one of integration, and I see social media as one more aspect to be integrated into a comprehensive approach to marketing communications. I feel like I'm seeing more chatter online calling for an understanding of integrated communications, but perhaps that's only due to my personal interests that draw me to blogs…

  • Thanks for taking the time to answer the question, Jason. I do agree with you, though you've seen posts recently, namely from Steve Rubel, about Twitter peaking because, among other things, celebrities are joining. Obviously I'm oversimplifying the argument, but I know it's out there.

  • The best examples is to take of letters. when I was young quite a few of us had 'pen' friends from other countries. Today you have Twitter and Facebook firends with whom you can communicate much faster. It is the quality of interaction which will determine how well liked you are.
    As for those who say it is the greatest marketing tool ever, I'd like to remind them of the network marketers who landed up in the house selling soap suds and all kinds of goods. They managed to make themselves unwelcome. Also if everyone is going to be marketing who is going to do the consuming?

    • Excellent point, Atul. We do have to be caretakers of the space to ensure it remains consumer driven and not marketing overrun. Well said.

  • I buy into this,

    “It will prove to be another channel of communications or set of tools to aide in communications that become folded into the mechanisms we use today”

    Social media to me is just another tactic in the marketing mix, but hugely powerful because it's about engagement with customers rather than communicating at them.

    I also like the idea about our emotional connections on the networks, which goes against some of the recent research in the UK that suggests people who use social media a lot actually become less caring, which is absolute rubbish of course.

    Social media to me is just another tactic in the marketing mix, but hugely powerful because it's about engagement with customers rather than communicating at them.

    I also like the idea about our emotional connections on the networks, which goes against some of the recent research in the UK that suggests people who use social media a lot actually become less caring, which is absolute rubbish of course.

  • I'm not sure how Twitter can be peaking when it's only now crossed into the mainstream. The more mentions it gets on ESPN, CNN and the like which now actively promote their presences on the platform, the more people will adopt. But to a certain extent, your question points to the answer. The tool is not the core of the premise. It's effective mediums for communications. It might be Twitter today and something new tomorrow, but the premise of connecting with people will always be prevalent.

  • Jason – I couldn't agree with your post more, but I wonder why some attempt to argue that tools like Twitter are peaking? If these tools are another way for us to communicate more effectively with customers, employees, investors, friends, colleagues, etc than how could they be peaking? Or is it that tools die and the ideals live on? Curious to hear your thoughts.

    • I'm not sure how Twitter can be peaking when it's only now crossed into the mainstream. The more mentions it gets on ESPN, CNN and the like which now actively promote their presences on the platform, the more people will adopt. But to a certain extent, your question points to the answer. The tool is not the core of the premise. It's effective mediums for communications. It might be Twitter today and something new tomorrow, but the premise of connecting with people will always be prevalent.

      • Thanks for taking the time to answer the question, Jason. I do agree with you, though you've seen posts recently, namely from Steve Rubel, about Twitter peaking because, among other things, celebrities are joining. Obviously I'm oversimplifying the argument, but I know it's out there.

  • Jason – my first read on your blog, really enjoyed the post. The emotional connection is not something I had thought a lot about but definitely agree it is there.

    I think that my favourite aspect of the emotional piece is that in order to be successful in a medium where you deal with all those folks (customers, employees, friends, family, occasional angry customers, etc…), the content of the message has to be honest and real.

    • Thanks for stopping by, Brian. Much appreciated. I agree that the content must be real and honest and think that is why it appeals so readily to the emotional connection with people. Thanks for the thoughts.

    I think you definitely got it right here. I love using social media tools to communicate only because they help me communicate better. However, I like to think I can still communicate on the phone, in person, etc.

    I think it was Charlene Li who once said that pretty soon social media will be ubiquitous – like air. These tools that shortcut communication will simply be expected means of enabling communication. We'll expect companies to be listening and we'll expect them to interact with us in ways that are meaningful to us (not just them). In many ways, this is already happening.

    How we communicate with these tools may be different, but I think the changes are bleeding over to other, more traditional, platforms. To be effective, email communication needs to be more personalized, customer service departments need to have real people answering the phone quicker, CEOs will be speaking candidly to customers in television commercials… I could go on, but I'm sure you already get this.

    Thanks for including our conversation in your post. People like you show us that humanity is always at the center of any effective communication – business or otherwise.

  • Well done.

    There is a lot more to social media than just the marketing aspect. It's people connecting in a way not easily done without the technology of the web. I've connected with people on Twitter I would have never met another way and established some great relationships.

    We're social creatures. Modern life has taken some of the social out of our “real” lives, but the drive to be social causes us to find other means to communicate and connect. It is natural, so social media in whatever form it takes is not likely to go away.

  • I struggle with this issue in the literary circles where I do my thing. When I show up at a writer's event in NYC or DC, they call me “that social media guy from Philly”, when in truth, I'm a writer/sales exec/marketing guy who just happens to know a lot about the use of social media.

    Because I'm all those other things I see the opportunity to integrate SM into more traditional strategies, and so I write about it, but please, brother, don't fence me in.

  • Relying on human nature to push forward a change in thinking is always a difficult proposition. However, if given enough time we humans tend to usually go in a positive direction if kicked long enough. What's interesting about SM right now is that it is truly a dichotomy of human nature (and more so then it has ever been with the explosion of Twitter). The real issue is balancing out the initial adopters and supplying enough juice to maintain the Twitter is “shiny” people.

  • Great post. I was golfing with my Dad this weekend and he says “Do I need to be on twitter?” I said “I don't know, do you?” The media has gotten everyone so worked up around buzzwords that we can't seem to see the forest for the trees.

    We ignore the really interesting questions. How can we use these tools to communicate better and faster? How can we raise the intellectual status-quo? How can we get better information? How are ideas spreading?

    Keep up the good work, Jason. I'm looking forward to meeting you at Indy Confluence later this month.

    We ignore the really interesting questions. How can we use these tools to communicate better and faster? How can we raise the intellectual status-quo? How can we get better information? How are ideas spreading?

    I couldn't agree more, Jason. My philosophy of communications has always been one of integration, and I see social media as one more aspect to be integrated into a comprehensive approach to marketing communications. I feel like I'm seeing more chatter online calling for an understanding of integrated communications, but perhaps that's only due to my personal interests that draw me to blog entries like this one.

    You have a great point about the network of support available via social media, too. My Twitter feed reminds me of that frequently, as I see tweets ranging from charity support efforts to simple words of encouragement for someone. It's a powerful network for sure.

    Thanks for opening up more conversation about the need for integration of social media into the broader scope of what we do.

    You have a great point about the network of support available via social media, too. My Twitter feed reminds me of that frequently, as I see tweets ranging from charity support efforts to simple words of encouragement for someone. It's a powerful network for sure.

    Thanks for opening up more conversation about the need for integration of social media into the broader scope of what we do.
