We are all evolving in this social space [Briefly Stated]

Filed in Facebook 6 comments

Practice may not make us perfect, but it certainly helps build our chops, especially as we learn to Do Social Media Right.

If you want to check out all the Don’t Do’s on Facebook, then click on Karen Clark’s guest post: “20 Facebook mistakes you should avoid.”

.  . . and the comments as well, including this one:

I sent a guy a message attached to a friend request the other day, with a few questions about his site. He very kindly answered them and then said “I look forward to networking with you.”

Am I right in thinking that that was what I was trying to do, but he kinda stopped the conversation off short?

. . . and my response:

Your comment reminds me how important it is for each of us to take responsibility for our own “added-value” experiences in social networking. Because this is all so new, most of us are evolving and experimenting, which means that it is difficult to do everything right.

In the situation you have pointed out, YES, I agree that the person is probably giving off some automated-type response, but if you see value in continuing the relationship, then, of course, you can go for it — i.e. asking him some questions that could help you solve personal/professional challenges.

Your response goes here, i.e. in the comments

I enjoyed this post. I am particularly annoyed by people sending me private emails every week to advertise their own stuff. It would be okay if they posted on their wall once/week, but not in a private email. I do have my tweets connected to Facebook because I am sending positive quotes, links to my blogs or articles, or links to other people’s blogs and articles, that I find really valuable and worthwhile. And I agree with all the other items in the list.

Social networking will educate us about how we interact online and in-person with not only friends, but also businesses and organizations. It has also shifted the emphasis of product, service and behavioral expectations. Most-of-all it is the most recent innovation in the marketplace-of-ideas concept, which focuses on discovering truth and democracy.

Nicholas, we have definitely entered the Era of the Marketplace-of-Ideas, and social sharing gives us so many opportunities to grow our own storehouses of knowledge.

It has changed everything, and will continue to for years to come. happy days are here again!
