Why I’m joining Capstrat

A year ago I made few decisions that culminated into a blog called the Anti-Social Media. What a ride it’s been. In 11 months of blogging, I’ve written over 250 posts, had three speaking engagements, met lots of amazing people, and become a snarkier happier person.

That’s why I am humbled and honored to announce I’ll be joining Capstrat as a Social Media Associate.

At Capstrat, I’ll be able to put all of the stuff I’ve written about, and all of the stuff I haven’t written about, to work. I’m excited to be joining Angela Connor, Cord Silverstein, and the entire interactive team.

I wouldn’t be able to make this announcement without you, my readers. All of your comments, tweets, messages, and feedback are essential to keeping this blog alive. I value the time you take to read this blog, comment, and share it with your friends. It takes time and effort to do those things. Time you could be spending with your real friends who aren’t snarky and don’t make fun of websites. Your readership and dedication is an inspiration every day. Thank you.

You may be wondering if I am starting as a social media professional, if this is the end of the Anti-Social Media. Can someone who researches and develops strategies and campaigns go around saying “Foursquare is F#8&ed?”

I can safely say this is not the end of the Anti-Social Media.  As long as Facebook continues to try and have you make more meaningless friends and people tweet while using the toilet, there will be an Anti-Social Media. The need for meaningful online relationships is greater than ever, and I’m excited to get to work on that.

    Congratulations - your viewpoints are what will make you an asset to their team. There is waaaay too much of the me too and herd of cattle thinking going on in the Social Media space right now.
