We Need To Stop Talking About Social Media

When we talk about properties like Facebook and Twitter as a homogenous mass, we don’t accurately reflect where major events, conversations and moments are happening. These aren’t little places anymore. With massive populations and quite different characteristics we largely mischaracterise what is happening when we talk about them as one.

So, as much as Facebook would like to say the Wendy’s vs. Burger King Twitter fight happened didn’t happen in Twitter, but in an otherworld called “Social Media”, it didn’t. Adam has a point.

While the behaviour on one side is silly. And the overall conversation a fine piece of navel gazing by the social elite, the reality is it reflects a broader hot-point for all of us living in marketing.

And that is social media’s days are numbered. There is no social or digital anymore. There is just media. There is just marketing.

And the more we view properties like Facebook and Twitter as individual media properties, the better we are likely to do on them.
