Fast forward to today and the horrible disasters in Japan and the subsequent nuclear reactor disasters, and I can’t help but think back to my early association days and wonder how things have changed since then in terms of media relations. So out of curiosity I visited NEI’s website and was so impressed with the way they’re addressing this crisis via both social media and traditional channels that I wanted to give them some props in my monthly guest spot here on SocialFishing.

And as a result, the rise of the internet and social media have changes the way we work, the way we live and the way we communicate and make and maintain friendships. While some may argue that the internet and social media has caused us to be more unsociable, taking us away from the physical world and hiding behind a screen, others believe that it has enhanced our relationships with people. Before the internet, people were restricted to a social network that was just local to them including neighbours, friends and family members that were just a short distance away.

New blogging systems like Posterous and Tumblr seem to be pretty popular, and they fill a nice middle ground: short content, easy sharing, social stuff. Tumblr, to me at least, isn’t a blog platform but something new entirely - a social network for both original and curated content that is longer than a tweet and often more visual in nature. That means that Tumblr is less like Wordpress and more like Twitter or Facebook - a social network for content rather than a blogging platform. tumblr social media owned media essaysThey’re cool.
