Social Media Wisdom

I”m a pretty good blogger, although not consistent. I have only 25 friends on FB and 20 connections on Linkedin. I know how to do email blasts without spamming, and proper email etiquette. I’m all but a neophyte on Twitter.  Okay, I  know a little about about social media. Not sure it’s at the level to be called wisdom just yet. 

But in the spirit of collaboration with one of the first true social media leaders, Liz Strauss of Successful and Outstanding Blog, who I met a couple of years ago, I’m doing this  25 word writing project.  The topic – social media wisdom.  She’ll collect all the entries into a meaningful summary. My contribution:  Connect by FB with friends and family. Twitter to spread news, follow and RT. Blog to share and niche. Linkedin for business. Email’s almost old.

That’s it short and sweet. But, there’s more to learn. Bing is new, and an iPhone may come in handy. Some day soon there will be an electronic channel that will let all of these methods stream together. It might seem overwhelming to some. Others wonder if it’s impersonal. But, my experience is that  social networking and media enhances the physical relationships I have established, and opens up a world of electronic relationships I never would have known. Improved communication builds knowledge, develops new ideas and leads to wisdom.

      Thanks for the visit and kind words, Rebecca. It’s good to meet another creative/thinker. We do seem to be the exception to the rule in a world where so many are pegged into the extremes of either artsy or anyltical. I like to do both.

    I loved your 25 word contribution. I think you summed up some of the big players pretty tidily. I’m a Social Media Neophyte myself, but am having a blast learning.

    Nice to meet you Wanda, and thanks for the feedback! Just checked out your site and found it very informative. I think you’ve passed the Neophyte stage 🙂
