Today is Social Media Day. Social media has been a game changer. So many people cannot see themselves without it. There are over 1 billion people on Instagram and 2 billion people on YouTube and Facebook. Social media has positively affected and here are my 5 reasons why I love social media.
Connection with people
Social media is all about being social. I love connecting with others. Social media provides me with ample ways of doing so.
I have learned so much from other accounts on social media. These lessons have helped me personally and professionally.
Yes, magazines and newspapers are still around but we live in a 24/7 news cycle. Social media allows me to be up to date for free or discounted fee. Before social media, I would have to literally subscribe to each magazine and newspaper.
I love livestream and have been doing it since July 2015 with Periscope. I now have my daily Projectized project management show Mondays through Fridays at 5:30pm EST on Periscope. I am now also on Facebook Live, Instagram Live and YouTube Live.
I love the YouTube Live hangouts. In addition, I also love the Periscope, Facebook Live and Instagram Live interviews and collaborations. I have learned so much from them.
Share my knowledge and expertise
Social media has given me a chance to spread my influence and authority. I have been able to reach more people in the areas of social media, personal branding and project management.
