Social Networking In Place Of Being Social..?

I find one to many businesses and their social media people could learn a thing or two from this here ironic comic.. 🙂

One of the main purposes of social networking… is the social part. You need to be real. You need to not sell your product all the time. This goes for musicians, business owners, bloggers, web designers, you tube stars, and social media experts…  You need to be interesting and provide value…. Just like you do in real life to make friends… err gain fans.. err followers… err.. people.

Stop self promoting non-stop. No one likes non-stop commercials.. Not even you… So why does your gplus, twitter, facebook fan pages have nothing but advertisements about how great you and your company are?

You've said this much more nicely than I ever could.

I have a product, it is called myself and my friends are my customers. Obviously, I'm not selling a real product but I try to think it this way… so I always want to meet new people, learn new things and have people learn about me. Can't do that if you're not social!

Ah, social media, everyone's friend and nightmare, another example of a good idea gone wrong, showing people what's trendy, and destroying what we knew as the internet, oh well.

Make it worthwhile by interacting it with your home business. At least you're gaining something out of it.

Hey man, you just misunderstood me. Social networking should go in it's way
without our control, everything just gonna be all right. It's an idea from
Tao in China, called "govern by doing nothing that's against nature".

life is to enjoy, not just parting but planing for the further ,time come to those who jump the gun,Yes,"selling yourself" to add on selling yourself short, again get to know your so so,so the two of you can biled an understanding of likes an dislike..

You got really really serious about this. In fact I dont know exactly the
"selling yourself". I do think most people work with it just fine, that's
most important.

Ok. I agree and disagree at the same time! Who don't like a good life and achiv WHAT she can offer you! To like good thinks don't impossiblit you to at the same time to make other things like solidarity! You, yourself Amanda you are a technician lover and you make publicity of your stuffs! So explain me the contest because I don't understand it!
