Nashville Tech Feed #12 – Social Media: Are We Doing It All Wrong?

Episode 12 of the Nashville Tech Feed continues the conversation started at Podcamp with Josh Oakes session “Maybe We're *ALL* Doing it Wrong: A Contrarian View of Social Media” We discuss is it it good or bad, does it go to far, are we fooling ourselves with perceived friendships? And so much more. Josh Oaks joins us along with Courtenay Rogers where we dig into and chew on the topic.
