Just wanted to share some facts that may change your mind:

In 2010, Gen Y began to outnumber the Baby Boomers

96% of them have joined a social network

1 out of 8 couples married in the US last year met via social media

Years to reach 50 million users:
Radio:                38 Years
TV:                    13 Years
Internet:              4 Years
Ipod:                   3 Years
Facebook added 100 million users in less than 9 months!!

If Facebook were a country, it would be the 4th largest in the World.

Still think social media is a fad?

Just posting this to encourage you to begin exploring how to promote your company on these platforms. Anyone under 30 likely only knows about a phone book from folk tales and pictures. How many people under 30 do you think get a daily newspaper? Everything is done online and that is only going to continue.
