Social media is part of our lives today more than ever. The use of social media has become pervasive in today’s workplace. Moreover, our lives leak into the internet, and the internet is part of our lives.
The information we post on the internet about ourselves is an extension of what we do, how we relate to the world and how we are perceived, or chose to be perceived by others.
Rob Garcia, (@RobGarciaSJ) has studied and worked with this phenomenon for a while. He has worked with various enterprises that developed a way to incorporate social media into their business model. One of his latest intervention has been as a Product VP at RiseSmart. There he helps people manage their online persona in order to constantly update their professional network. Previous to that he was part of Lending Club. There he used the internet and social media to create relationships between people looking for money and private lenders.
In this interview, we talk about how social media leaks into the workplace, the business world as well as it has done into our daily life.
