Social Media

"I now have 102 connections on my LinkedIn account! I worked hard on it over the weekend and could never have done it without you. Thanks again for dragging me into the world of social media."

Are You New to Social Media?

First let me assure you.  Everyone is a beginner at some level when it comes to the Internet.  Sure, I’ve been focused on Internet technology and online marketing since 1996, so I suppose I could call myself an expert.  Does that mean I know everything about the Internet and computers?  Not by a long stretch.

My knowledge is broad, from how to run a web server to how to add video and optimize content for the web.  Many of my colleagues focus specifically on one technical slice of the spectrum for their entire career.  Does that mean they know everything about their small niche?  I watch them continuing to study while their technology of choice evolves or gives way to something new, and as the technical or social landscape around their chosen field changes.

My point is … we’re all still learning.  So if you’re new to this, have hope!  Just take one small piece at a time, and even while you’re still feeling somewhat lost and overwhelmed with the many possibilities opening up to you, you’ll also be surprised at how quickly you become an expert in the eyes of people around you who know less than you did before you read these books and started playing with the ideas.
