You have a lot of choices out there with social network sites. So first, I want to thank everyone in here for trusting in me, my brother or a friend, for joining the site without even seeing it.
I had lunch with my friend, Todd, a few weeks ago and we talked about social media. Never has there been a time like now, when information and ideas are being exchanged, in a blink of an eye. For some, that's scary - it's an unknown. But, for others, it's exciting.
Here's what Wikipedia defines as social media:
"Social Media is the democratization of information, transforming people from content readers into content publishers. It is the shift from a broadcast mechanism to a many-to-many model, rooted in conversations between authors, people, and peers. Social media uses the “wisdom of crowds” to connect information in a collaborative manner."
The power is in the hands of the people. Nothing more fantastic, exciting and wonderful than that.
As we grow and change and figure things out, I want to share that I have big dreams for the Met. I'm working on having my portion of the blog on the outside so that people can get a feel for what's in here (that will debut Monday). Money is being spent to create depth - categories for blogs, cleaning up the tabs.
But I also want everyone to know that at the very heart of this, I promise to keep the content relevant, useful, and interesting. Promise.
