Explaining Social Media

Tracey, my real life friend, came along with me to a social media gathering last night.  It was difficult to explain how social media can help her professionally and lend a richer experience to her patients.  Twitter was especially hard to explain.  Which makes me think, what is the use?

People asked that same question of the Internet / web, so perhaps I’ll just wait around until someone more eloquent than I comes up with a sound bite that defines the online world.

    Hi Christine,

    I didn’t get the chance to introduce myself before I hadda run out of Jeff’s breakfast gig, but I saw this post on and thought you might be interested in my attempts to explain Twitter.

    Maybe next time we’ll both stop yakking long enough to meet. Not that you were yakking….

    Hey Don! I saw you in and out, I wanted to say hi! But I’m a yakker, too. Why don’t you come to the meetup on Saturday? http://seesmeetphilly.pbwiki.com/
