“Social media is bad for me, bad for business and bad for society”
That was the moot of last night’s debate at Social Media Club Auckland – an unlikely topic, you might think, but as the event organiser I felt it was good to get some healthy discussion going.
On the negative side (arguing that social media is actually not bad) was a Twitter celebrity and upcoming novelist, a marketer who’s also a busy mum (and previous iJumpTV interviewee), and a scuba diving, business owning, online-response giver.
It was a great debate. We had some tired old cliches with an ounce of truth – that social media wastes time and kills productivity – but we also had some genuinely constructive collisions of ideas.
