Tuesday, as part of my Squared Online course, Chris Perks , my tutor presented a webinar discussing how best one can measure social media ROI.

When he posed the question in the chatroom, different views were shared. However, the group consensus was that we needed to  measure beyond the immediate impact in the bottom line of  a business, because this might not always be the immediate  result.  Social media net gains has more of a percolating effect.

Ultimately, the main goal of a business is to generate profits.  But taking this as a successful indicator of a campaign, particularly in the short  to medium term, is indeed short-sighted.

Part of module 1 of my #squaredonline course I saw a few Ted videos, in order to reflect on our digital lives.  Because of my interest in the social sciences I found the talk by Sherry Turkle:  Connected but Alone, very revealing and thought provoking. Her premise is that mobile technologies and the way we interact with them, social media in particular,  are not only changing what we are doing but also changing the way we are.

Alone Together.

Her observations have led her to conclude, that as we spend more time on-line we are gradually removing ourselves from our emotions. The main reasons are, that we are losing  the skill to communicate and the spontaneity that comes by interacting in the non-virtual world.  The control exerted over virtual communications, by using technology to “edit”  who we are,  either by retouching audio or editing our profile, etc. Produces a group of social avatars, removed from reality, which uses technology to create “edited” selves.    Technology “cleans up” who we really are.
