Quotes On Technology, Social And Digital Media

Digital media simply put is any information shared through any digital device. Today, digital media is available in different formats and used for a variety of reasons. It can be used to disseminate and share information (electronic books, digital photos), advertising to increase brand presence online, build and maintain relationships and even for personal growth, through digital learning. Here are some amazing quotes on technology and digital media.

“Social and digital media is a bullet train, and that bullet train is not coming home.” - Howard Schultz

“In an age of constant live connections, the central question of self-examination is drifting from ‘Who are you?’ towards ‘What are you doing?’” - Tom Chatfield

“The digital world offers us many advantages, but if we yield to that world too completely we may lose the privacy we need to develop a self. Activities that require time and careful attention, like serious reading, are at risk; we read less and skim more as the Internet occupies more of our lives.” - David Mikics

“Social media is an amazing tool, but it’s really the face-to-face interaction that makes a long-term impact.” - Felicia Day

“Social media is the ultimate equalizer. It gives a voice and a platform to anyone willing to engage.” - Amy Jo Martin
“For all the promise of digital media to bring people together, I still believe that the most sincere, lasting powers of human connection come from looking directly into someone else's eyes, with no screen in between.” -  Howard Schultz

“Use social media for good and lift others up, not tear them down. Stay on the high road. Keep your peace.” - Germany Kent

“One of the trickiest parts of social media is recognizing that everyone is doing the same thing you’re doing: presenting their best self. Everyone is now a brand, and all of digital life is a fashion magazine.” - Kate Fagan

“Your website is the center of your digital eco-system, like a brick and mortar location, the experience matters once a customer enters, just as much as the perception they have of you before they walk through the door.” - Leland Dieno

“We have to be role models. We have to be curious. Above all, we have to pay attention and be part of the conversation while our kids are still listening to us.” - Anya Kamenetz

“In this day and age, the digital age, you can forget about a resume; you are what your social media says about you.” - Germany Kent

“In order to be successful in the digital space you must produce creative and original content in line with current social and media trends that is innovative enough to have a memorable impact.” - Germany Kent

“In a digital era where social media has become a dominating force, too many leaders value their popularity, protecting it at all cost, degrading their credibility.” - Noel DeJesus

“There’s a problem with the word ‘social’. Social is not just Twitter, FB, etc. Social is a language.” - Andrew Grill

“When people ask me what’s the ROI of Social, I ask them… what’s the ROI of Trust, and what’s the ROI of Loyalty. The answer, when used to build relationships the results will be… longer lifetime value of a customer, larger average order value, and increased frequency of purchase. All measurable and all lead to increased sales and profits.” - Ted Rubin
