#Socialautomation vs more authentic social voice #LikeMinds #SMWLDN @TheDrum @spicerlife @cyberialab

Stephen Lepitak at The Drum mentioned this video he shot last month of social automation tips from Hootsuite’s solution team leader Lindsey McInerney. Interestingly, there was talk of brands becoming people as well as need for the person tweeting on behalf of the company to FEEL the business from the likes of the food critic Kate Spicer and my strategy colleague Eric Schwamberger at Tenthwave, during the Like Minds Social Media Week London panel on food. It will be interesting to see how this call for more humanistic authenticity can be reconciled with the rise in social automation, earned media planning, etc.
