I came across this excellent article on Remarkable Parents written by a dad, Jeremy Biser, that has discovered the importance, and necessity, of embracing social media. It’s a reminder that social media is SO much more than a virtual playground for Millenials. It’s part of our lives and the lives of our children, our parents, our customers and our vendors.
"Looking back, I’m disappointed at my own ignorance. I wish I would have started a blog 4 or 5 years ago. I wish I would have discovered Digg or StumbleUpon or Technorati when they first launched. I wish I wouldn’t have grounded my teenage daughter for 2 weeks when I found out she created a My Space page and lied about her age on it."
I wonder how many of you had similar fears and experience when you first heard about Facebook. It’s still a little surprising to me to hear that some of our friends are only discovering Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter now.
