Everyday leadership also means being aware of the technology that enhances how we influence people. According to this infographic, social media has been around since 1969. I would posit that social media has been around since the printing press was invented. Although early media was not interactive, it accelerated communications and person-to-person interaction. We're social beings and if we expand our thinking, even cave art was social media. As Solomon said, there's nothing new under the sun. We have innovations and inventions, but the foundational activity is communication that moves us from caves to condos and beyond.
