Social Media begins with people on the other side of a computer screen. Those individuals writing about their personal lives, experiences, ideas, opinions, accomplishments, failures, or simply wanting to be heard. The term Social Media should stand for something more than promotion. It is a terminology that indicates its purpose within the title: Social Media. The world within a world. A place where a person from Spain could potentially interact with someone in America.
A powerful tool in Social Media is to actually be social. Connect with others by reaching out and interacting with them. This will cause, at times, a response to interact back. The internet is not about a “you” mentality; it is about an “us” behavior. When we give time to other people, that time is reciprocated. In the beginning interaction needs to be earned. Place 30/60 minutes aside each day to dedicate interactive tasks.
Rule of thumb: posting requests to act can deter potential interacts with a social network site.
“Request to Act” are AD’s, and any version of that AD. “come see my show, or this show”, “Like my page!”, “Listen to this song/joke video”. These are all examples of a Request to Act. A Social Media No No. Instead, to keep interest, a good form of Social Media educate is to express an emotion, or opinion of what is going on. “Had an amazing time last night performing.”, this is to the point, and is selling nothing. It is, however, bringing up a reason for people to ask questions.
