Most days, I get to spend my life working in the daily grind of HR-related issues. Employment, comp questions, employee questions, phone calls, interviews, meetings - stuff like that.
At the beginning of the week, I got to spend an hour listening to more lawyers with wrong social media stats scare the tar out of an audience. Using words like reckless, discoverable, risk, etc. Avoiding the really important part of WHAT social media can do for companies, businesses, schools and yes, college graduates.
But every so often, I get to do something really fun. Amazing. Like today.
Today, I am going to spend one hour talking about social networking and social media. All of it. Everything from Google Profiles to Twitter lists to LInkedIn for Grads. It's not enough time but at least I can bring a little fun and enthusiasm to the topic. No scare tactics. No words like risk or lawsuits or defamation. Just great ways to use the tools already out there.
