I was intrigued by this article found as ever on LinkedIn. What intrigued me was not the content so much as the way the content was laid out – pre-packaged for our sharing generation. For example:
If you steal knowledge, it will be with you until your last breath. [Tweet this]
Works perfectly for a morning email and LinkedIn checker with zero time. What we want is for our shares to be as easy and painless as possible. For the knowledge that we share, and therefore becomes our digital social identity, we want to be clever, knowledgeable and up to date. Not always easy given the pace of our lives and the sheer weight of data that comes flying our way.
“Tweet this” as part of the content is very much more useful and precise than the page sharing buttons that propagate on every page. At first I thought this a little presumptive – perhaps even rude. But I think this is the way of the future and suits our news byte lives.
