Social media explained….. through a donut

I came across this while browsing blogs today and I thought it was absolutely hilarious.  Sadly, each point on this board is completely, 100% accurate.

It seems that every time I look through my social networks, there are countless uploads of the food my friends and followers are eating at that very moment. Social media today causes us to upload and share every aspect of our life on multiple platforms.

Lately I have been thinking about what effect our uploading has on various products and companies. Whether it be positive to negative, we are spreading brand awareness for a given company with the click of a button. Word of mouth is now able to travel much more quickly and easily.

Take for instance the recent Chick Fil A scandal. Before I was able to actually read a credible article about this situation, my Facebook and Twitter feeds were flooded with posts containing friends opinions on the situation. Negative word of mouth was rapidly spreading about Chick Fil A from sources who really didn’t know 100% what was going on!

In my opinion, social media is a blessing AND a nightmare for PR peeps. It’s an awesome tool to utilize for your benefit, but in  negative situations it can cause extreme havoc.
