  • 13. Doing it Right• You’re vetting the posts you share before approving• You’re following people you trust and so even if you approve an individual post first, you’re certain of the quality #TheLabNYC #SMX #25A
  • 14. Danger Zone• “Atomic tribes” enable you to automatically tweet anything by the person whose tribe it is• Ease of approving posts for sharing means many share without reading.• Some people join any tribe they can and share everything without paying attention #TheLabNYC #SMX #25A

  • 19. #TheLabNYCImage via TechnologyVehicles #SMX #25A
  • 20. Takeaways• Use automation to streamline, not replace the human touch• Make sure you know what you’re sharing• In a crisis, be of the moment.• Don’t. Be. Stupid. #TheLabNYC #SMX #25A
