I propose an idea. A call to action to fight the chatter and enjoy what's presently in front of us. Let me explain.
Last week I found myself at a social media marketing event in San Francisco called SMASH
. Fascinating and inspiring to say that least. Of all I learned, there was one word that stood out more than most: Chatter
. Talk about a buzz word! In fact that one word summed up the whole event. For those of you not aware, chatter is the noise all the social networks in the world make when they have something to say...which is at least every second. It can be heard through your iPhone, your computer, your RSS and your iPad-and just about anything else you carry around that needs electricity.
At some point it became our job to listen to and follow it. Anyone with a blog or interest online feels the interest and likely the obligation to keep up with this chatter. But how much better off does it leave us?
