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.
