Introducing an interview series with some of the most influential Canadian women in the social media scene, wherein they ponder the thesis:
“Women are more suited professionally to social media, because they’re friendlier, chattier, reveal more and make alliances more quickly than men do”.
I picked the brains (ew) of a number of very generous and influential ladies, including Kate Trgovac, Kelly Rusk, Monica Hamburg, Adele McAlear, and Tara Hunt, on their experiences with other women in their careers. Given that social media is a bit of a matriarchy, had they encountered professional kindness from other women in the popularity contest that is social media, or does cattiness get in the way?
“Are you helpful to other women jockeying for head social butterfly—spreading the love—or do you confess to not linking it up like you should to hold others down? Do you have a sneaking suspicion that’s happened to you, or seen it happen to someone else?”
This topic is such a hot button and the answers are so good that I have to devote a post to each of them, so those will be coming right up!
