Is it time to try social technologies?

I know for some people the term "social networking" can be quite scary but is it perhaps time for everyone to start using social networking sites more? Looking for some encouragement, why not have a look at the video below (it's from a few months ago but it's still useful) from Kevin Jones. In the video he outlines the two main reasons why individuals don't use social technologies.

  • Fear of the unknown

  • Fear of change

As Kevin says the only way to figure some social technologies out is to give them a good sustained go, don't just quit after a few days.
