I taught my first class on social media last week at our office in Naperville.
One of the first questions I asked the class was "How many of you already have a facebook profile?"
About 90% of the hands popped up...
My next questions was "When was the last time you actually posted something on facebook?"
All I got were blank stares...
Are you a wallflower? Or do you like to dance?
The world is filled with all types of people. The leaders. The followers. The bold. The shy. The wallflowers and the dancers...
But if you want to get the most out of of social media, you are going to have to get off the sidelines and get out on the dance floor.
They all work, but you need to work them to get the full benefit. Part of social media is, after all, being social. A big part.
Write a post. Make a comment. Share a photo. Tell a joke.
Break out your dancing shoes. Don't be shy.
You might be surprised how much fun you can have.
