Chris Wiegman: Social Media Shouldn’t be a One-Man Show

While Chris’ post is geared toward the higher ed crowd, I think the message is for everyone. Social media use should be a team effort. Chris’ post from last week does a nice job of making his case and I think if we translate his talk about what University personnel should be doing to what our staffs should be doing, it’s clear we need to be empowering more of the masses to post and update. This is a topic talked about other times on this site, I just thought it was another good take on the issue.

Here’s Chris’ post: Social Media Shouldn’t be a One-Man Show
