Is it time for a new approach to management? Social…
If any of you still float around MySpace (and by float, I mean lurk) still after moving your name to FB, you’ll notice that some kids still have a very, very heavy bulletin post rate – these are the people who would be ideal to use something like Twitter.
There’s 2 girlfriends of mine in particular who continually bulletin, and MySpace’s clunky ‘click-here-to-see-anything-at-all’ interface is a big barrier for me to bother to read beyond the title.
As a little experiment, I’ve suggested Twitter to both of them – although I can already predict their response – “None of my friends use, so they won’t see it.” It’d be very interesting to know how many Followers you’d need to satisfy that.
For me? It was just 4. 4 of my close friends who share an interest in the interwebs and media, in all it shapes. This has grown well into 50+ people I follow, and about 75+ who follow me. I still use my MySpace through services like Ping.fm and for some photo sharing.
Idea? Twitter groups.
