Yesterday Foursquare mayorship surfaced as part of our office “social media updates” also known as “guess what just happened.” The blog post looked at who held mayorship at large magazines. For example, outreach editor Zach Seward is holding on to Wall Street Journal mayorship, while Condé Nast’s mayorship lies with Shaun Gough, art director.
Which got us thinking, how much value is there in being mayor of your workplace? Potentially, Kaitlin and Shaun could use their mayorships to demonstrate their social media engagement or to simply brag to their friends.
And that begs the question: What do workplace mayorships mean to you? Are you proud to be mayor of your office or is it just another mayorship? Have you entered a competitive winner-takes-all battle with your coworkers or do you have a mayor-by-default since only one of you is using the program?
And lastly - Would you ever consider putting a mayorship on your resume?
