The Overwhelming Potential of Online Social Media

 

Anyone, even someone 100% immersed in online social media is likely to have moments where they just feel so overwhelmed they need to sit down and shut down their mind for a while. I can’t say I am even dedicating half of my time to online social media and I constantly find myself overpowered by:

  • the speed at which new startups are launching,
  • the new web marketing tactics emerging on a daily basis,
  • the information that is shared and is largely untapped,
  • my own ideas for new social tools that I could never find the time to launch… but still distract me,
  • the potential for the future of many of the social communities/tools I use on a daily basis,
  • etc…

Which is why I totally understand why a man by the name of Birger Hartung felt he needed to get his thoughts out of his head. The result of his brainstorming is a work of art in itself that I think is absolutely awesome in my own geeky, web marketing-focused way :-) Check out his creations below or on his site birgerking.net – nice work Birger!

    Hi Ross,
    thanks for your kind words! And yes, I’m also often distracted by news coverage and all the other stuff!
    ;)
    Would be great to exchange about what you think when you are watching the sketch. Your six step model is cool, maybe I should do something else?!

    Good writing but images are a bit tricky.

    Hi Seo London,
    what do you mean with “tricky”? I need your feedback to optimise the visuals…
    ;)
