Social Media Connection: Alfred Edmond Jr.

Alfred’s MySpace Profile Page

MySpace is the first social media site where I established a profile for professional reasons, as an editor at Black Enterprise, as opposed to the social networking activities I pursued as a personal pursuit. At around the same time I created my MySpace page, Black Enterprise also became active on the site, and still maintains a presence. However, once I became active on Twitter and Facebook, my activity on MySpace dropped, and was almost zero for most of 2008 and 2009. I've become more active over the past year, thanks to capabilities they've added (in obvious response to Twitter and Facebook), but it still falls at a distant third in priority when it comes to meeting my business objectives as an editor at Black Enterprise. However, I will never leave my MySpace friends hanging.
