This little boy is a twin. He is a grandson of one of my dearest friends. He is also one funny young man. He tickles my heart and I hope he will tickle yours too. His name is Ryan.
Ryan is already an innovator. Here, according to him, he has “customized” his piece of bacon by adding chocolate to it. He is at the new restaurant just opened on Randolph off of Michigan Avenue in Chicago. It’s Wildberry, known for its awesome breakfasts.
Consider these three social media innovation tips:
- Social media innovation can happen anywhere where you least expect it. For example, online innovation flourished during the Thailand floods, as the people of Thailand turned to social media for everything from sharing information to comic relief to serious calls for help.
- Social media in companies has a long way to go. If companies would honor their employees and share more personal stories and showcase more about who they are rather than what they do, they will connect more in the cyberworld which is what bringing in the social in the media world is all about.
- Explore social innovation in places like among children, in schools, on streets and write or video your unique self into the fabric of your work.
Finally, the greatest gift you can give to others is the gift of you. I know you’ve got something to offer. We ALL do, something that is all you, something from your heart. In your effort you will find true innovation.
