I am blown away by the power of Social Media and Social Networking.
Something that meant very little to me just a few years ago, now plays a huge role in how I connect with others.
Isn’t it crazy how quickly Myspace – Blogs – Facebook – Twitter became natural parts of our lives?
I check my Facebook like it’s my e-mail and update my Twitter as if people care every single day.
If Facebook was a country it would be the 4th largest in the world. Youtube would be the 3rd.
Through facebook I have reconnected with friends that I haven’t even spoke with in over 15 years. I have also made new friends as well.
Here is a crazy one…I actually care if someone un-friends me on Facebook. Really?
Last week, I created a YouTube account based off of a conversation I had with John Forbis. Since Saturday the videos on my channel have been viewed nearly 600 times. That’s since Saturday! I am not saying that to brag AT ALL! I haven’t really promoted the videos on there all that much. Matter of fact, my most watched videos on there haven’t been promoted at all really.
Social media has become one of the best ways for businesses to market themselves and influencers to get their message into the hands of the right audience.
Last night I decided to begin a little social media experiment.
I asked my daughter, Sidney, what she wanted to do this summer. She quickly responded that she wanted to be in the parade at Disneyland and she would like to meet Tinker Bell. So, I decided to create a Facebook page and see what happens. Here’s what I am curious to see..
1. How many followers can this page have?
2. With enough fans, can I get out message into the hands of the right people and actually make this happen?
This experiment could totally bomb….but what if it doesn’t? I thought it would be fun and worth the try.
Here is the link to the page. Let’s Help Sidney Get in the Parade at Disney. Please help me by spreading the word and joining my experiment. It could be fun to watch it grow or to watch it go nowhere together!
I want to learn how to use social networking well.
Now it’s your turn…
Two questions this week.
How often do you check your Facebook in an average day?
Are you on Twitter? Why or why not?
Thanks for reading my blog.
