Social networking can be challenging. If it isn't challenging for you, I think you should maximize this talent! I am approaching the social networking arena mindfully from the inside out. I am being as thoughtful as I can about what I write, how I write it and to whom I send it to. I look at my intentions for the posting. I try to get posts out regarding research and information pertinent to the community in which I work and serve. I also share Stressed Teens marketing about this new blog, the new online class and to events being done by Stressed Teens.
I am a bit frustrated but I am also excited. I think I am doing something right. I am posting to groups within Linkedin and Facebook and I am getting a few comments and likes reported. There is still that feeling that something is missing. It just feels a little weird. I am sending things into an abyss. In a way I actually am. I hope people are patient with me if I make mistakes. If you can let me know if I am making them I would appreciate it because knowing what you don't know is a wee bit difficult.
I found a few articles on mindful social networking and I thought I would include links to them here:
I understand if you are Kim Kardashian or Apple you probably have this social networking business down, but for the rest of us do we really have the help we need? I need the Dummies guide to social networking. If someone hasn't written that one yet please do. However, I am sure by the time it is published we will be onto a whole new group of networks for which to use.
