In the spirit of February, and the lovely holiday that comes smack in the middle of it, I decided to squeeze my chubby self into a loin cloth, grab my bow and arrows, and spread why I love social media.
1. Because It’s Changed Everything
Remember about ten years ago, when people were getting canned for being on social media? Sites like MySpace and Blogspot were blocked in nearly every workplace, and the topic du jour among HR types was how those sites were making millennials even more unproductive.

I am simply not a fan of the considerable amounts of “What’s Coming in 2013″ and “2012 in Review” posts that come across every platform I read – it was a barrage of blogs and data/stats that made my eyes hurt, and didn’t teach me much.

*No typos. Ditto to above. Triple/quadruple checks of all written things for polish and precision. Correcting and complaining about the grammar of others is only permissible if your own content is professional and error free.
