Social Networking’s Daily Nightmares.
How convenient is having an online presence that costs nothing. Nothing but time my friends. Lots and lots of times. Got a few minutes, read on.
We have to do it sooner or later. Become networked. Become social online. How unsocial is being online? Yet everyone is doing it. Lots and lots of questions to answer and still everyday folks are signing up. Register your name is probably the best thing to do right now. Good luck Jane Doe and John Smith, you are slightly late to the party. But, if you have that wacky name from your parents – now you can gloat in delight as the rest of us struggle for something like our given name.
What about those of you with business and personal accounts. Remember the golden rule – don’t mix business with pleasure. That means you must have two of those nasty unsocial sites. Ah! the daily nightmare begins. Login and log out between two sites. Tell your friends about what you did at lunch. Tell the workers what your friends did at lunch. No matter how you slice your piece of the social pie – you are gonna have more than you bargained for.
500 million subscribers. Of course you have to sign your business up. Even if you aren’t planning to connect with 5 million readers – the option is there. Did I mention that being unsocial is free. Meet in person, that will cost you. It is also very simple to sign-up, register or subscribe. You would be silly not to. People want to discuss your product or service with other readers. In fact they demand it and look for the avatar or icon click. Expect an email from your readers. Some of the clever businesses leave the email off the website and drive the traffic through the social sites.
I will be registering 10 new domains this year for the same company. After that I will have a Twitter and Facebook account for each one. A couple of the sites will have Flickr. Three sites will have YouTube channels. Each uniquely different. And you are worried about having – two maybe three. I didn’t make up the rules here folks – but, you have to play by what the public demands.
