How many times have you been in a conversation thinking â€œget to the point!â€ Or, how many times have you been talking when you realize, â€œWOW it took me a long time to get there.â€ Â
I am standing up here (for better or worse, and in as few as words as possible), to say that one of the real messages that social networks has provided to us is: “Keep It Short!” Â
I agree that social networks are about connecting with people, people you have not seen in a long time, or people around the block. However, it is also a way to stay connected without long conversations.Â You can get a glimpse into an old friends life without having to re-hash the last 20 years. Â And we can do it all with 140 characters, or 140 characters and a picture or a video.
This brings us to the new age of marketing – get your message out, short and fast, and it will have a stronger impact.
