Social Media:

So that no one thinks I am dissin’ them, I am not a member of any of the networking internet sites. I hope to never have to sign up with Plaxo or Linkedin or any other. This is partly because I don’t understand why I would want to be signed up.

Friends are always welcome to text, email or call me. And, I sort of look at it the same way. If you are my friend, I know how to reach you or at least can find a way.

I also don’t have a Facebook page nor do I understand Twitter or why I would want to know what someone was doing every second of the day. Unfortunately, I suppose these two will eventually take over communication if it isn’t an even more advanced method. I have suggested for years that we eventually will have an earpiece and microphone implanted in our bodies so we don’t even have to hold a phone.

However, I am not blind to the ever-changing landscape of personal and business communication.  As such, our marketing team has informed me that Par Aide we have joined the ranks of the Facebook universe!  So, we now have a blog, a Facebook page and a YouTube channel…I guess Twitter is next, but the jury is still out on how it could work for Par Aide!!  There is no doubt that Social Media is the hot trend right now in the business world, in fact, 80% of Fortune 100 businesses are using some sort of Social Media, so I guess we are in good company!!

Just give me a voice controlled television. Now that would be a valuable innovation!
