I’ve no doubt that a raft of more pertinent posts will flood the blogosphere today, and indeed, I shall pen my own more detailed blog next week; but last night one thought was buzzing round my mind:
Q. What’s the value of social media?
Yesterday was a DIRECT result of conversations on Twitter a year ago.
Which led to the growing of a small, like-minded community.
Which led to a tweet-up.
Which led to blogs.
Which led to discussions and provoked debate.
Which led to the community growing.
Which led to another tweet-up.
Which led to the community growing further.
Which led to a Yammer network and a website.
Which led to the organising of #CHRU.
Which led to yesterday’s successful unconference.
WHERE WILL WE GO NEXT?
Call it a movement; call it a collective gathering of like-minded professionals; call it an opportunity to learn from people in other industries; call it an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise.
Call it what you want, but none of us would have been sat in that incredible space yesterday had social media not allowed us to facilitate the idea or our relationships with each other.
Viva la social revolution.
