I'm a Twitter kind of gal ... I can easily express my thoughts in a limited amount of characters and now, without correct punctuation. Sure, it drove me crazy in the beginning. I felt robbed of my education when I was forced to delete certain letters and leave out a period at the end of a sentence. But - I have quickly gotten over it. The world of texting and micro-blogging really does make you take a second look at your priorities.
Mary McKnight recently penned a new article and posted it on her blog Netamorfasis (catchy name, huh?) How did I learn about it? Why, Twitter, of course! Because I'm very good at taking directions, I wandered over to check it out.
The title is more than thought provoking - it's almost a challenge. My personality type wouldn't just let me read the list - I had to print it out and highlight it. Which networks am I involved in? Which ones not? Did I need to be? Will it increase my sales? Improve my relationships? (BTW (by the way) - when did they become relationships and no longer connections?)
I perused the list and was quite proud that I can claim "membership" on at least 50-60 of them. Unfortunately though, I don't spend enough quality time on any of them to nurture the relationships that I've started. However, in my own defense, I'm actually "connected" to those same people on at least 5 other networks.
I wonder: If main stream society is pushing us towards increasing involvement in social networking - which networks are the tops?
I invest my time on my Active Rain blog, my personal blog and my other one, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and I also find it beneficial to stay connected to our MLS system. (It too comes with messaging).
Since we're all connected and we're all building our business through our social networks, which ones are most beneficial to you? How many of the 100 can you claim? Which ones are actually helping you to generate more business and closed transactions?
More than just me - Inquiring minds want to know.
