We are at an age of information overload, we’ve been there for awhile, and it’s getting even greater. With that said, is it really overload or is it information disorder, leading to confusion? Let’s face it, we can pretty much ask Google ( or other search engine) ANYTHING we want and find an answer. With the click of a mouse, you can search a word or phrase on the internet, and then within seconds, a list of 100+ results and options pop up! Now what?
It’s still up to us to determine the authenticity and credibility of that information, similar to sifting through the sand for the golden nuggets.
Resources on the web include: newspapers, magazines, journals, blogs, organizations, websites, government sites, forum sites and more. Another popular source for information are social media platforms such as FaceBook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google + , Pinterest, and so many others.
The trucking industry is no different, the information available to us is a tremendous asset. Along with journals and informational websites, including the option to have up to date news sent directly to your email, there are the increasingly popular Social Media websites sprouting.
Because of the internet and technology, no longer are professional truck drivers isolated as they drive, the only communication being their CB radio.
Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and other social media sites and interactive information site have created a window of opportunity to share information and become interactive to people they would have never been heard from before.
To sum it up, the ability to obtain information and communicate has reached new levels. Along with that, there is the ability to share information to thousands in an instant “Click”.
To put it simply, the once isolated and voiceless now have the ability to locate many informative destinations as well as be heard and to share their own vital messages.
But now the question is, ” how do you keep up with it all?”
To aid with that dilemma, Trucking Social Media (TSM) has created a central Hub in attempts to help organize many of the resources available today.
Since the launch of the Trucking Social Media Convention in 2011, it has been our goal to unite with like minded people, sharing our info along with that of others throughout the industry, sharing all knowledge, experiences, and finally our voices.
The Trucking Social Media website is an extension of that original vision and goal. As we combine the technology, the internet, and mobile communication, our latest goal is to create a trusted Hub of quality resources and information.
The Resource Page: Informative websites, Social Media Groups, Government Agencies, Blogs, Charities, Advocacy, Health, Cooking, Associations, Directories, etc… is collected and updated on the website by TSM as well as submitted by those within the industry who would like to offer their resource suggestions and be a part of a trusted community. This vital info can then be shared via Social Media, reaching multitudes of others.
Videos are also a large part of the website as the trucking community shares their voice by sending in their Video URL, such as from YouTube.
Partners Page Our partners are an essential part of the Trucking Social Media Hub.
Our Partners continue to display their commitment toward honesty and integrity by offering the highest quality info, products and services.
