This week Atlanta hosted Silverpop’s Client Conference titled Amplify; Silverpop is a digital marketing software company. This year’s keynote speaker was none other than Ariana Huffington, the creator of the Huffington Post. Ariana’s address was great! She talked about how today we take better care of your smartphones than ourselves. She also mentioned that we should consider digital detox’s in order to get away from our virtual lives. Ironically, I first heard about the conference on Twitter (#SPOP14) but I completely agree with Ariana’s statements!
I think this video by Portlandia’s stars does a good job of summing up the kind of overwhelming presence social media has on our lives.
