Life: A Reality Show. Starring…you!
Proliferation of new technologies + social media + open communication + electronic paper trail + GPS = dynamite combination.
We had a lively discussion on the full impact of social media at Dallas COO Forum in June. Some companies want to forbid use of Facebook and other on-line outlets. Others want to embrace and leverage the new and inevitable. It’s a dialog taking place in conference rooms all over the world.
The bottom line is: You can’t be a hypocrite, anymore.
If you are doing things in “private” that you don’t want to become ”public” you are operating behind a veil of naïvete. It can be lifted instantly — prompting a very chilly and often embarrassing exposure.
We’re all in public life, now. Even if we haven’t been elected.
