Each time I venture out to a gathering or Tweet-Up I am asked by those I meet there how Golf fits into Social Media. Surprisingly enough most of the non-golfers who attend these functions did not know golf offered opportunities other forms of social media do not get close to offering.
Who Is This Person?
One of the things social media is weak at accomplishing is its ability to uncover is a person’s true personality. When people meet online there is no way to know each other’s character traits. There is just no way to get out of 140 characters what type of person is behind the Twitter posts. There is no way from telling from a Facebook Fan Page update a person’s trustworthiness. It really takes a lot of time to figure out who the person is on the other end of the online chat.
