I am often asked, “But Fran, how can you be in so many places at once?” Obviously that’s not possible. But Social Media absolutely makes it seem that way! All day I’m reminded by my amazing Front Desk Staff, Lucy and Laurie, to update my Facebook status, send out birthday wishes, scour Twitter for relavant content, browse LinkedIn for interesting articles and groups… Its never-ending! It is also incredibly time-consuming.
A few days ago, I had the privilege of attending a seminar at the Staten Island Museum; Social Media & Social Good: An Afternoon with Sree Sreenivasanon. Is it possible to advance social good by way of social media? Non-profits, social good and faith-based organizations, cultural groups, and small businesses were invited to attend this exclusive workshop hosted by the Staten Island Museum, so of course I was there!
I learned so much about using Social Media for Social Good. I also learned that it is incredibly difficult to be successful at Social Media while running a nearly 24/7 small business, a not-for profit Foundation, a community volunteer, a wife, mother, and grandmother, a breast cancer survivor, and just Fran!
I’m going to take a moment to consider all of this, while contemplating my pretty toes in my lovely shoes. I’ve got this!
Remember, its always a woman’s right to tweet, and send a status update, and most importantly, to shoes!
