#SMWLA

Last week, 12 cities around the world celebrated my new favorite holiday of the year—Social Media Week. Conferences were held, coffee was stirred, and friends were made.

Without social media, nobody would ever know the beauty llamafont.com

I wasn’t that impressed with the panels I attended, but the nature of it all was fascinating. Sometimes it’s easy to take social media for granted, but I truly am grateful for the fact that a company isn’t just a tagline on a billboard anymore. A company is now an interactive voice supporting a set of values.

    I couldn’t agree more. I found that the panels I attended (only 2, to be fair) were probably directed more at the inexperienced, people just beginning to tackle Social Media in their personal and professional lives, but I suppose that’s where it starts. More incredible, is the obvious capacity for the world to be connected in an instant, and without anonymity. Long gone are the days of faceless, anonymous chatrooms and here to stay is personal, intimate profiled connection afforded through social media. “I have a voice” the world screams, and you will hear it- 140 characters at a time :).
