I made a stop on The Beat Live Tour
last week and was treated to a lively crowd from the Florida Business Travel Association
in Hollywood, FL. I promised not to quote anyone by name, so you won't see a report about the discussion, but I have to use this one statement which I think sums up pretty well the attitude among many corporate workers about social media, particularly Facebook and Twitter: [more]
"Everybody today is in their 20s."
I'm not sure if the speaker, who works with an industry supplier, meant it this way, but to me this is a mindset thing rather than an age thing. Physically or not, you're "in your 20s" if you're buzzing about on social media ... old rules be damned. Closer to 40 than 30, I still dig it. Do you?
