  • Social Media demands transparent, honest, authentic participation. Stay on topic; don’t add to a conversation unless you can add to the conversation. If your interaction is simply marketing messages in disguise, don’t be surprised when people don't engage or reciprocate.Information overload is everywhere. People will focus only on what interests them, which is other people, and not necessarily a brand. Say something that makes people want to develop a relationship with you and listen to what you say.“Build it, and they will come” only works in the movies. Social Media is a “build it, nurture it, engage them, and they may come and stay.” - Seth GodinApplauding and thanking others can lead to trust relationships that pay great dividends in the end.
