Need suggestions: how to escape the smart social business blah

by Volker Weber

If you look at the #IBMconnect hashtag, you will find it is already polluted. Now imagine when everybody cranks up their "come to our booth", "win an iPad mini" and "come to my session, see nekid gurls" postings. For a second I was thinking about #Lotusphere which may be a bit more sane.

Do you have any suggestion for a better hashtag?

There is definitely a need in the world of all things "status updates" to filter. Alan Lepofsky has spoke about this on several occasions. I'm not a big hashtag filtering person. I go to Twitter/Google+ etc. to check in on others periodically from the perspective of "passive awareness". I'm not sitting in TweetDeck all day watching all things "fill in hashtag here".

#ls13 seems reasonable to me.

“Social” is a given. Companies use this stuff to get work done. So… #workplace

Could the trully social people start using CB Radio? Avoid all the sales pitches.

Paper darts are the way forward Carl.

I propose sitting in bars and talking to people as a way of avoiding too many exclamation marks, buzzwords and hashtags.
