5 Ways to be a Social Networking Smash

May 20th, 2009

1. Be Helpful
Distribute what you know. Make people smarter.

2. Share
It’s not all about you. For every time you talk about your own stuff, talk about other people’s great content 8 times.

3. Be Personal
People gravitate toward people, not robots. Show what you’re really like. Just don’t be a freak.

4. Ask
It’s amazing what you can accomplish in social networking, if you just give it a shot. Rejection by email doesn’t sting much.

5. Don’t Try to Game the System
Seriously. Your “fool-proof method for gaining 5,000 Twitter followers in just two weeks” isn’t making others want to connect with you. It’s making us want to throw up in our mouths a little.
