By Robyn Wheeler The News Staff Writer ATHENS Henderson County Now journalist Michael Hannigan spoke to Athens Rotarians at the Athens Country Club at the weekly meeting Sept. 25. 'Tve been a journalist for more than 20 years and we are in a very interest- ing place in history right now," Hannigan said. Hannigan explained that social media is quickly be- coming more important in business networking. "More than 1.2 billion people are on Facebook and 800 million of those people log in everyday," Hannigan said. More than one billion people have a Facebook app on their smartphones which means phones are being used more and more to access the Internet. "A phone nowadays is a pocket computer with a phone app. If you are not one of the 77 percent of Americans on social me- dia, you are like the people still using Morse code and teletype;" Hannigan said. Hannigan went on to say that 40 percent of all news is driven by Facebook. That is to say that between likes, com- ments and sharing, many people find their news from Facebook. Many so- cial media sites have grown too big and users are unable to view all the information that is gener- ated in one day. "I curate the stream. I look at all of it for you and bring it together," Hannigan said. "The newest trend for businesses is SoLoMo," Hannigan said. SoLoMo applications allows adver- tisers to notify potential customers geographically nearby. Examples of SoLoMo apps include Foursquare, AroundMe and Yelp. "lnternet and social me- dia is changing the face of the world as we know it," Hannigan said. In other news, Rotarians heard: the golf tournament is Oct. 20.
