Some quick hitters for a Tuesday:
- Most of them preferred Twitter over Facebook and other social media platforms. In the couple of years that I've been asking college students this question, this is the first time ever that they selected Twitter. In fact, this is the first time that most of the class even was "on" Twitter. Maybe this is because the class is made up of PR majors but maybe this is a change in social media course. We shall see....
- I asked if they ever heard of Pinterest (my new social media obsession) and not a surprise but most of the women raised their hands. The "pinning" platform is all the rage of the female set. What was surprising is how some of the women expressed an almost obsessive relationship with the platform, spending hours pinning. I for one am waiting for my Gentlemint invite to come in the email.
Finally, not related to the class but to PR in general, is Carnival Cruise lines smoking crack or what? All I got on a Tuesday....you?
