I guess that I have probably under estimated the power of social media on occasions. It is not to say that I was not paying attention in this instance but when the instance pertained directly to me I simply failed to take note in time.
True it is that I continue to witness how social media is becoming more and more of a power house in our lives but for what it is worth; social media can be viewed in so many different ways.
In my case, social media informed me of something and then I took what I learned to come to a correct conclusion.
You see, I had to learn from certain posts on Facebook that changes were being made at a company that I was working on contract for. At first, I did not think much of the few posts that I read but when these posts intensified it was time for me to pay more attention and I sure did.
To shorten the story; changes were happening and I was not going to be included in these changes moving forward. In essence, my contract was not being renewed and I seemed to be the last one to know.
I actually had to write to this company to ask for confirmation that my contract was not being renewed. And they confirmed in a short and very off hand manner.
Ah yes! The power of social media and I need to pay more attention or I will stand to be caught napping!
Just my two cents for today.
