Interesting post, reminds me of a guy 100 years ago, who said if they ever make me give up my horse for one of those new-fangled cars, I will not use it.

Social media is here to stay, embrace it, use it, or be left behind. The next generation of employees will know and understand the uses of social media, and to compete with this next generation you need to understand their thinking and how they operate. We have too many people in the IBM I community who don't embrace new technology, and after all people in IT are supposed to be change agents. Facebook, and posts about what you ate for lunch isn't the social media that I am talking about.

was easy, smoking was not. But I did it on the same day.

Maybe LinkedIn will be the next easy quit. I really don't do much on it.

I don't do Facebook. Or Twitter. Or LinkedIn. Ever. For any reason, under any circumstances.

And my employer was informed, some years ago, that were he ever to give me a direct order to do so on behalf of the company, I would immediately collect my personal effects, and he would never see me again.

I have a REAL web site. And REAL friends. And A LIFE.

Just say NO to social media.
