  • 3. Why use Twitter? • Find a community of people who care about the same things you do • Get news and recommendations from that community • Let them know what you’re doing and thinking • Share ideas and links that matter to you • Learn social media skills: what works, what doesn‘t • Just to have fun
  • 4. Create More Value Than You Capture •The secret of social media is that it's not about you, your product, or your story. It's about how you can add value to the communities that happen to include you. If you want to make a positive impact, forget about what you can get out of social media, and start thinking about what you can contribute. Funnily enough, the more value you create for the community, the more value they will create for you.
