Joel is Social Media Savvy?
I used to love reading Sydney Harris' syndicated column that ran in The Detroit Free Press through his death in 1986. Once or twice a week his column was called "Things I Learned En Route to Looking Up Other Things." Or something like that. Lots of interesting tidbits in the age before the Internet.
Anyway, I remembered it as I was looking at my Facebook feed and saw that my virtual friend Mitchell Freedman had posted a link to an article called "20 social media savvy accounting and tax professionals". Naturally I took a look at it. And while reading it, I found myself on the list!
What surprises me is I don't know the author of this blog nor was I familiar with it prior to seeing the link. This world of social media is quite amazing at times.
I referred to Mitch as a "virtual friend." We met through Facebook while commenting excessively on our mutual friend's (and fellow Blogger Crew member) Michelle Golden's updates. While I have not met Michelle face to face, I plan on meeting Mitch next week when I'm in southern California. For someone who supposedly is "social media savvy", I continue to be amazed at how relationships can be formed, referrals made, and beyond while never having met face to face.
(Ok - that is two posts in a row on me being in the media. I promise something accounting related next).
