Big thanks to everyone who joined our chat on Tuesday. It was great to have so many voices sharing ideas and opinions! Our topic was Plugged In: the pros & cons of always being connected. Amongst other things, we discussed the benefits of being connected, including while mobile, and the greatness of social media for connecting and sharing with others. We thought about playing nicely online to protect yourself and your work/association’s image. It seems we want to master making mobile connectedness – and social media itself – work for us, and not be used by it. We agreed that being connected must be balanced carefully with unplugged time, and it was great to hear how and when people disconnect.
The chat was just how we like it: fast, insightful, humorous and helpful 🙂
Here are the questions we discussed:
Q1. Mobile devices mean we can be connected ALL the time. What are the positives? #anz23mthings
Q2. What are the negatives? #anz23mthings
Q3. How and when do you disconnect? #anz23mthings
Q4. Is your social media image one of your most valuable job-seeking tools? #anz23mthings
Q5. Do you worry about how your social media image may represent your employer? #anz23mthings
The archived chat is very long, so we have put it on a separate page. We’re disappointed (nay, annoyed!) to reveal the Data Gremlins have eaten the first hour, so unfortunately we only have from 7.30pm (AEDT) onwards. To be precise, we can’t make GrabChat collect the first hour despite many attempts, by many, on many devices, on many browsers. #grrrr
(If you have any hot tips as to how to recover these tweets, please direct message @anz23mthings. Thanks!)
That aside, we’d love to hear what you thought of the chat!
Please leave us a comment 🙂
