I sometimes wonder at social etiquette. Case in point. I was invited to a RAMA meeting the other day to hear Eric Berman, Facebook’s Marketing Solutions Partner speak. It was great information. I took a lot of notes, but I was also tweeting the info while I sat there.
The in-session tweeting got me to wondering... are we too socially connected at times? If I am in front of a group going through my well-prepared speech do I want your undivided attention? Yes, I do. Will I get it? Probably not. In some cases, attendees are urged to tweet-out info while they're in-session. We are supplied with the hashtags to use. Does that mean then, that we are obligated to tweet? Are we in violation of some social media ordinance if we don't tweet? Are we truly paying attention to the speaker if we're frantically tapping away on our smartphones? Great questions. Anyone have the answers?
Do I have any answers? Nope? Just wondering how you, as a speaker feel?
