This weeks episode about social media and the power of hashtags was both fascinating and yet scary. I could so relate to Gibbs and his totally ignorance of what is a hashtag, I live with one of those ” send a tweet to Ry will ya” people. He actually means send a text. Twitter, facebook, instagram, blogs, four square, pinterest and the list goes on and on and on, Please world stop with the new social media sites I am having a hard time coping with keeping up with my real life let alone trying to maintain all these social media sites.
The power of a hashtag is pretty cool though, such a simple little concept for getting an idea out there, using a simple little symbol “#” if done correctly has the power to change the world. ( or at least change your/our/my little world). A singer can find instant popularity, a politician can be ruined in a second, an idea can snowball and change how we do business.
#thiscouldworkboss shows truly how powerful this medium can be.
So I leave you with #honestheart to check out Ryans music and hopefully the power of this medium will ensure him a larger audience.
