LinkedIn Diaries: Answering the Really Tough Questions | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

While LinkedIn is without a doubt the social media tool of choice for business leaders across North America, many have confided in me that there a number of questions about the tool that they struggle with. In this entry of the LinkedIn Diaries, I answer the five most thorny questions that executives face when optimizing their LinkedIn strategies.

Position Yourself For Success While Working Your Current Job

Position Yourself For Success While Working Your Current Job | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

If you’re like me you can’t get into a conversation without mentioning your brand, or the importance of building and maintaining it. Sadly, these conversations aren’t only with entrepreneurs, so I get plenty of eyes that start to glaze over when I bring up the topic. It’s hard to explain to people that building and maintaining your personal brand isn’t just a skill that needs to be mastered by entrepreneurs. Even if you never plan on leaving your current job, increasing your profile often leads to promotions and bigger money. More likely though (you are reading Personal Branding Blog, right?) you plan on leaving your job at some point, if you haven’t already, and you’ll make for a much easier transition if you do a few simple things to build your brand before leaving...

How to Best Use Facebook’s New Smart List and Special Friend List

How to Best Use Facebook’s New Smart List and Special Friend List | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

There are friends and then there are some special friends. Until now, Facebook has weighed them all on the same scale. In fact, Google Plus exploited this very weakness to great effect with its circles feature. However, that’s all set to change with Facebook’s new Smart List and Special Friend List. The underlying principle is simple – the one size fits all rule just doesn’t work when it comes to friendship so there got to be a way to treat friends differently.

 

In this post, I explain the new lists (Smart List and Special Friend List) in layman terms and how you can best leverage these to good effect...

Inactive Twitter Users, What Do You Do With Them!


One of the most popular blog posts here on Blazing Minds happens to be “How To Find Out Who Unfollowed You On Twitter” and in that post I talk about using a Twitter Tool to find those tweeters that may have followed you and then unfollowed you. But what about those inactive Twitter users that you may have followed, but they don’t do anything.

 

Yes I know I’ve posted about this in “How To Unfollow Non Tweeting Tweeters On Twitter” but I thought it may be a good idea to give you some further options and some other Twitter Tools that do the same thing and to see if they are all correct...

Make Your Own *Tweet It!* Page | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
After I shared two posts last week with "tweet it" tips and quotes, readers requested I share how to set that up, so I am. Because I love when you all tell me exactly what to share to help you. It makes blogging so much easier.

6 Reasons your Social Media is Stagnant (and How to Fix It)

6 Reasons your Social Media is Stagnant (and How to Fix It) | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it

Stagnation is not a permanent state. It’s only as stuck as you let it be. I’ve yet to encounter many things in this crazy social media world that can’t be shifted without a good shove in another direction. Inertia works.

 

 

Feel bored, stuck, frustrated, overwhelmed? Take charge, and take stock. The internet will live without you for a while if you need to step back and figure it out. No puppies or unicorns will die if you change your approach and do something different. There’s always a reason, always a different choice, and each and every one of you is equipped to find it and fix it.

Now, off with you. Go start kicking over some rocks.

 

Have a look through the list below for some of the causes behind the symptoms, and what you might to do give your social a shot in the arm.....

How Much Information Do We Give Away Every Day Online?

How Much Information Do We Give Away Every Day Online? | SOCIAL MEDIA, what we think about! | Scoop.it
Online privacy... it's an issue we are all, or least should be, very concerned about. But I don't think most of us realize just how much information we give away every single day.


We're online all the time... or so it seems. We all search to our heart's content. We make purchases online, do our banking online, many of us for all intents and purposes live... online...
