No doubt over the last 6 month my Social Media usage has gone down and I have lost interest. I have an awesome job but it does not directly involve Social Media full-time at the moment, this will eventually change.
So for me attending Social Media Camp has relit my Social Media Fire again! It is something I believe in, something I see the benefit of but it is also something I think is fun. Creating content, blog posts, photos, podcasts and the community I am involved with.
More so I just finished an interview with a guy(sorry I forgot your name) from WebmasterRadio.fm about Social Media in the North and by north I mean the Northwest Territories.
For a long time I have considered myself a Social Media Evangelist for the north, but like I said I lost that mentality. Just doing that interview though, that was directly related to Social Media in the north, brought back all that passion I have for it.
I remember back in early 2008 and how there were only 5-6 of us on Twitter and Facebook had only been around for a year. We have a come along way and again I want it to grow.
There are barriers, like technology. A lot of the NWT communities doesn’t have high-speed internet of support for smartphone, but you know what! Back in 2008 I rarely used Twitter and Facebook on a smartphone and when I did it was via Text Message, which all the north has.
So my new goal, which is what has me fired up and getting the NWT connected via Social Media. I don’t know how yet but I believe a good start is creating NWT content.
