/*** Social share ***/
Everyone is fascinated with social media these days and it’s becoming a part of a lot of people’s daily lives both personally and professionally.Of the top 20 most visited websites 4 of these are social media sites: #2 Facebook, #4 YouTube, #12 MySpace and #15 Twitter. There’s no doubt Social media is definitely here to stay!If you’re thinking of joining all of these social media sites my recommendation is to start with one or two and learn to use them well. By signing up for too many of them you will be spreading yourself too thin.First thing to learn is social etiquette. Each social media site has it’s own community with its basic structure, rules and regulations. If you’re new the community users will help you stay within the guidelines by providing hints and reminders when necessary. You will find that all you have to do is ask and most users will be very willing to provide help and guidance.The first thing you should do after signing up with a social media site is to fully complete your profile and upload a suitable picture of yourself. What I mean by “suitable” is a picture your mom would be proud of. I see all to often users who send me an invite to connect don’t even have their profile filled out or a picture uploaded. Why would I want to connect or do business with someone who doesn’t take the time to upload a picture of themselves?What you choose for your profile picture is also very important because it’s the first thing people see of you. It should present you in a positive manner. Save the ‘fun’ pictures for other sections of your profile like the “Photos” tab within Facebook.The most important thing to remember is to be ‘social’. Always remembering to present yourself so that people will be attracted to you and want to get to know you!
