Bacon and Social Media

Yesterday I had the pleasure of visiting Black Dog Salvage in Roanoke.  This is one of my favorite places to spend time looking through the antiques and salvage items. From their Facebook Business Page:  We have a 40,000 square warehouse filled with Architectural Antiques, Custom Designs and everything in between. Visit them online @ or in our beautiful Roanoke Valley.  


Most people I know LOVE bacon!  I mean, come on, what’s not to love?!   We have had a recent, ongoing conversation on Twitter about our love of bacon. thanks to @SueanneShirzay  @LewisPortez@thedawe@stephdcottrell@izzibag and others; there is even a #Bacon cruise in the planning….so glad I found the luggage tags!!

People’s love of bacon, especially when it is cooking; experiencing the aroma and the sizzle, is very much like social media!  Early adopters start using social media platforms, the buzz spreads, and everyone hungers to be part of the experience!  When Google launched Google+ the people that could not access it without an invitation reminded me of being around bacon frying, but not being able to taste it!  The sizzle and the aroma draws you in.  Your friends and family, people you know and respect spend all of their time talking about this platform or that platform, this app or that app, and we want it!  See, just like bacon!

So, fry up some bacon, the good stuff, not the instant bacon or the all veggie bacon; your body will tolerate an occasional treat, and enjoy!  While you are at it, immerse yourself in the social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn or others.  Ask questions, consult others, see which ones work for you and have fun!
