The social busker

Tis was the eve of Christmas eve, and whilst strolling merrily down one of Glasgow’s busiest shopping streets I couldn’t quite help, but stop to applaud and appreciate the young talent that lined  with festive spirit and a smart and savvy sign, which read along the lines of; ‘find me here’ followed by a list of YouTube, Twitter and Facebook contact details.

These ain’t just any young buskers! These are social savvy buskers of the twenty-first century buskers, who have without question clearly embraced what the concept of social media; and indeed the social revolution of which we are all becoming accustomed too.

As a social media enthusiast myself, I feel unexpectedly proud of their courage and marketing technique.

Take note people. These budding champions are a far cry from the generation of buskers gone before them; who spent hours outside, in all kinds of weather, showcasing their talent upon the streets of Glasgow City Centre. Budding stars in the making – whatever they go on to do.
