In recent years Social Media services such as Twitter and FaceBook have seen unprecedented growth. Everyone is jumping on the Social Media bandwagon to make use of this new and powerful medium of communication. In this quick post, I look at some very basic Social Media principles that you have to follow in order to get the maximum out of this medium.
1. Consistent User Names
It is very important that you have consistent user names (or logins) across all Social Media networks. For example, if your Twitter Id is called “VeryCoolGuy” it is good to have the same user name on FaceBook (i.e FaceBook.com/VeryCoolGuy). Using consistent user names will allow people to easily find you. It is also important that you have consistent profile images across all Social Media sites that you participate. A consistent profile picture will allow people to easily recognize you or your brand. Most Social Media sites also allow you to write a few lines of information about you. Make use of these profile description to tell your audience who you are and how you can help them.
