Social Media Explained….Via Doughnuts

I just saw this on PR Daily and thought it was not only hilarious, but highly useful and correct.

Social Media can be a tricky thing to explain to non-digital natives, hence why I like this clever idea of explaining the world of Social Media via something that everyone understands – doughnuts!

This simple list demonstrates in a light-hearted way the many different ways social media can be used to share or state the same thing in effect….but from a different angle. This in reality of course could be anything from a media release, a feature, a piece of coverage, an interview, a video – something which an organisation might want to share on several different platforms in order to reach their broadest potential audience.

Other suggestions may include:

Twitter: I’m drinking #Wine

Facebook: I like cheesecake

LinkedIn: My skills include tea and coffee making (a skill of a particular importance for a recent graduate like me!)

Who knew that doughnuts could be so educational ;-)
