G: How and why did you get into social media?

W: I don’t think of social media as a thing to get into. The term is an attempt to describe how technology, some being what is also described as “new media” is affecting business. To say that I was “in social media” would be like a business saying the are getting into phones or automobiles when they use those tools. Yes, some people are in the social media business, just as some businesses sell phones or cars. I hold that the revolution is business and life will come from this enhanced communications capability, regardless of what business you are in. We can choose whether to use it, just as we can choose whether to use a phone or automobile.

Who Are the Social Media Citizens?


optimisationI’ve been conducting interviews with Social Media Citizens for a last couple months in order to understand better what social media means for different people working in different parts of the world in different sides of the industry and before moving on to the new series with updated question I want to take some time off to analyse a few answers. So this week there are no interviews – just plain analysis.

Who Are the Social Media Citizens?

I thought that there is no greater way to define this term than to hear the opinion of the top social media influencers about it. And that’s what they had to say:

  • “We are all citizens of the world of social media. Whether implicitly or explicitly, our mediated lives have changed and whether or not you are an active participant in social media channels, you are in fact, a participant. – Adam Broitman
  • A Social Media Citizen is an open minded individual looking to engage and collaborate across the digital sphere. They will give more than they take and always look to develop themselves and their relationships. – Chris Hall
  • ‘Someone who contributes to the value of the Social Media space.’ This is really more to do with the nature of the social objects they share in the space rather than the connections they have. – Richard Sedley
