I was just reading Paul Dyer‘s recent post on the new influencers, new media and I wanted to share the post. He talks about age as it relates to understanding and maybe even immersing oneself into social media. I tend to agree with his point of view. I am certainly not 50 years old, but there are days when I do not feel far from it in terms of social media, and otherwise. I do keep track of friends and colleagues on LinkedIn. I do not have Facebook or MySpace account and most likley will never. However, I, like most older folks, try to learn by reading the influncer-type blogs and immersing myself it in as much as possible. As I have mentioned here before, I think the social media “boom” if you will is similar to the “Internet Boom” we experienced in the late 90’s and it’s going to be, and is, a big learning curve for all of us, no matter what age.
