This post is at the request of the Twitter network I belong to. I tweeted this morning asking people what industries they think will be the slowest to adopt social media. I’ve included a highlight of my favorite responses (including a few comical responses, as well). Thanks to all who responded!
Which industries do YOU think will be among the last to adopt social media? Why?
: @PRsarahevans re slow industries: would say Accounting but there are already lots of great ones on twitter already. Only 1 great lawyer!
: @PRsarahevans- an industry that will be slow to adopt or adapt top social media – insurance. Although the gekko at geiko could be campy.
: @PRsarahevans chicken farming industry seems like it would be a slow adopter. Assassins are also unlikely to leverage social media. (This wins best comical response!)
: @PRsarahevans is public education an industry? It would be my choice as not only a slow adopter but in some cases moving backward…
: @PRsarahevans definitely think the construction industry will be one of the last to adopt social media. no immediate need for them.
: I think the financial services industry will be the slowest @PRsarahevans They have historically been bad at adopting new technologies
