Social media have created a buzz in our field because they help people stay connected. But my gut tells me that social media only work when users want to stay connected — be it to people or organizations.
Part of my job in the JSchool is to utilize social media tools to help our students and alumni stay connected — to us and to each other. But unless we provide good reasons for folks to want to stay connected, no amount of tweeting or podcasting will bring us closer together.
