10 Reasons To Make Linkedin & Twitter The Cornerstone of Your Content Curation Strategy Yes of course you have Digg, Feedly, StumbleUpon and other social media sites or bookmarking sites but Li...
Christopher Pernell Thames's insight:

Twitter is a quick and effective way to target your audience without having to send them a formal request. Since Twitter is more real-time than any other social media site, it makes getting your message out from your website or blogging platforms quickly. Used in conjunction with Linkedin, it helps you reach the more professional audience that you have already created for yourself. Unlike Facebook and Google Plus, Twitter working with Linkedin allows you to get the exact content that you are looking for without having to do too much searching. Not saying that Facebook and Google Plus are not good tools, it just takes a little more navigating in order to find the content that you are looking for if you are working on industry specific ideas.

Christopher Pernell Thames's insight:

Christopher Pernell Thames's insight:

Today on Linkedin, there was an article posted arguing that writing your Linkedin profile in the 3rd person is a huge mistake (Stop Writing Your Linkedin Profile In The 3rd Person!). In all actuality, most of the content to support this claim was all merely taste and or opinion based. In all actuality, your Linkedin profile should be written towards your targeted audience and what you feel will sale yourself or your product. In social media, we must stop coming up with these stupid rules encouraging people to not be creative when approaching their industry or market. It’s all about being fresh, being new but not being too cute. You can definitely write a Linkedin profile or summary in the 3rd person perspective without sounding like you are boasting. In the end, it’s all about the results, not necessarily about your format of writing and I don’t need statistics to prove what I am saying. It’s God-given commonsense.
