Monday Minute- Social Olympics

Do you have Olympic fever? My wife and I have spent the last few nights watching swimming and gymnastics. However, we already knew who qualified, won or lost. My latest Monday Minute discusses the role social media has played, so far, during the London Games.

Give me your feed back in the comments below.

"It's never too late to have a life and it's never too late to change one." That's something I tell students, friends, and family all the time. After living and working in New York City, I took my own advice in 2004, switched my career from the television/radio industry and got into public relations. Now, I spend my days as a PR/social media marketing consultant and get inspired daily. It's been a good ride, so far. But the car has plenty of gas left. I hope you'll join along in this guy's journey!

    Hi Jason. Definitely a timely question. I groan now every time one of the over-produced, dramatic music pieces comes on (except for the piece about the gymnast from the Bronx which rocked!). Anyway, the main thing that has struck me is that although I knew the results of, for instance, the women’s gymnastics, it still made a difference watching it. AND although I knew the USA results, I was blown away by the British 27 year old woman gymnast. I would not have seen that had I not been watching the televised footage. The magic is still there in the actual events …. sometimes …. although I could do with less commentating and more just athletes.

  2. Thanks as always for responding, Paula. You are right, it still is great to watch. Nothing, for me, will replace watching an event on TV. It would be nice to see better integration of social during the Olympics. I’ve been a little disappointed in what they’ve shown so far.
