“Do you have a Twitter account? If you don’t have one — get one, now.”
I heard these words in college and thought my professor was out of her mind. She didn’t continue her lecture on Digital Essentials until we all did. May it encourage you to join the adventure I have fallen in love with… the power of social connections through social media.
In a world that is moving forward rapidly, how do we stay connected? Most of us use social media to promote our business or keep in touch with others. How about finding new friends, adventures, clients, or a combination of all the above? That’s the power of social connecting–you are putting yourself out there to connect. You connect with what you want to explore. The power is yours.
My adventure on Twitter helped me find other marketers talking about the latest social media business tools through following the hashtag #IBMConnect. (What’s a hashtag? What does it mean? Read my post on them here.) I followed the excitement and ended up reading tweets that were inspiring. I even found the link to the LiveStream to the Orlando, Florida conference on Twitter.
How are you using social media? What adventures are you embracing through social connections?
