Our Generational Hurdle
Share

Written by : Tom George| 0 | Content Curation

My “baby” nephew Tyler turned 20 a couple of days ago, and as I went to his Facebook page to post a birthday greeting (‘cuz nobody emails anymore, duh), I noticed his friend count: 626. Now Ty’s definitely not lacking in social graces, but he’s never been what I’d call gregarious. And yet 626 people have friended him online.

It got me to thinking about how differently our generations view this whole social media business. People in their 20s fearlessly rush into that let-it-all-hang-out goldfish bowl of blogs, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and other arenas without a care in the world. But with folks my age, well, there’s a certain hesitation, a nagging fear that does its best to hold us back from putting ourselves and our ideas out there in blogs, in photos, in audio and video.

And I think I know why.
