No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world. Robin Williams
You can’t learn to speak Spanish if you don’t commit to memory vocabulary lists. The task of memorizing the meanings of “el pan” (bread) and “las galletas” (cookies) may be boring, but the wok it takes to learn the vocabulary will be worth it when you visit Spain, step into a bakery, and know how to order fresh bread or cookies.
Likewise, if you want to ask questions about social media during a webinar or further your knowledge of social media by reading blog posts, it helps to understand the vernacular of the speaker or blogger. In other words, learn the vocabulary so you can learn more about more intelligently and efficiently use social media.
As with any new language — and learning social media is much like learning a new language — you’ll never be understood if you don’t first master the lexicon.
