I Met with the Boss Yesterday

My boss came back from lunch yesterday and called me up the stairs to sit down with him. He smelled of scotch whiskey, which told me right off that someone else had been picking up the tab. He drinks a bit, but only when some other guy is paying for it. At any rate he started to talk about social media marketing and whether or not we needed to try to buy real instagram followers. I had never thought about this and to be honest I did not know why he was talking to me, not until I thought about it later on. Of course I am twenty six years old and pretty much all of the people above me are middle aged. Those guys know pretty well how to advertise to people like themselves. They listen to the radio, they read the newspaper and they watch the local TV stations. It is old hat, but a lot of younger people do not really interact with media in those ways.

I have a radio in my car for example, but I rarely listen to it except when I am trying to navigate around in bad traffic. It is a long time since I ever listened to the radio for music, probably when I was only in the car with one or both of my parents. I have my phone now and before that I listened to my own music nearly all of the time. I do not pay for the newspapers, but I do read them on the web. So I suppose you could hit me with an ad there. As for TV, the stuff I would get off of the local broadcasts is on the web too. At any rate I think a lot of people do get all their information from social media like facebook.
