Social Media Anthem : From Bacons To Secret Of Facebook’s Holy Grail

Attendees at The Social Media Marketing World Conference in San Diego held last month received valuable lessons on social media – not through expert-led sessions but a gig titled “Let’s get social”. Mary McCoy from Continuum Managed Services gave the attendees a musical insight into the world of social web – from cats to hashtag fails. The song, a warm-up for a keynote panel led by Jay Baer (Convince & Convert) on the topic of “Have We Lost the Social in Social Media?”, has created a considerable buzz online – for good or bad reasons that’s for you to decide! lyrics –  Verse 1I’m showing you things you’ll likeTrying to get engagementHere’s some photos from my lifeMy cat, my kids, some bacon Verse 2I’m hoping you’ll share my stuffAnd tweet it to the worldIf you help me grow my Klout,I promise that I’ll share yours Pre-chorusSo connect with me, let’s have some funLet’s show the world how this gets done ChorusLet’s get social (social) with social mediaLet’s get social (social) with social mediaWhere we can spread the word and grow our reachAnd find our fans in their newsfeedLet’s get social with social media Verse 3We’re searching for the storyThat’ll bring us instant fameSo we shoot our “viral video”And we post it to the Gram Verse 4We’re looking for the secretOf Facebook’s Holy GrailWe try to keep from payingThat leads to hashtag #fail (Repeat pre-chorus and chorus then to bridge) BridgeHey now y’all, can we just get real?Do we care about our fans or is this just another deal?Said another way, have we lost our way?Social’s about the people, remember they are peopleDo we really need another fan, like or share?Do we need another post to show up everywhere?I hope as we scatter we never forgetThat our posts live forever even when we go to bed
