Do Influencers Drive Social Media? « Sysomos Blog

Do Influencers Drive Social Media? « Sysomos Blog | Social Media Outlook | Scoop.it

Social media is such a broad, general world that sometimes it can be difficult to wrap our head around who drives the big digital machine.

 

There are many theories and animated discussions. Some say it’s the newsmakers since news is a huge conduit for social media. Others say it’s those who create the dynamic content that has transformed and defined the Web 2.0 world.

 

There are even schools of thought the culture of entrepreneurs is the biggest factor in social media’s rise. Maybe the answer lies with the influencer.

 

In many respects, influencers are key to making sense of the billions of pieces of content and words that are published throughout social media services. They are the ones we follow, trust and ultimately help decide what will succeed or fail.

3 Reasons Why Meaningful Creativity is the New Social Media Must-Have - CommPRO.biz | Social Media Outlook | Scoop.it

Creativity is not usually listed in the top 10 business skills. Not too many business colleges make you take lots of creative writing, art, dance, and music classes as pre-requisites for a business degree. Very few employers scream for their marketing team to make their brand “pretty” or for workers to “feel” more during their yearly pay reviews. Even fewer employees focus on their creative skills as a way to advance their careers.
