My journey to Social Media Enlightenment

leave a comment »

Like many of you, I too, am working my way through this new rich playground called Social Media.  This quest allows me to combine my love of technology and my passion for always learning new things by applying them to situations in my life.  So here I am.  What have I done to date?  I have the required accounts at:

www.twitter.com

www.linkedin.com

www.facebook.com

I have spent many hours to build these out to reflect my experience, skills, personality, etc and have acquired quite a few friends and/or followers however still do not feel like it’s all coming together hence why I started this blog.  Over the past few weeks, I have started a new project for a non-profit that I donate my time to with the expressed purpose to drive their membership up using Social Media.  For now, the name of this non-profit is not important.  What is important is how to harness the power of social media to achieve the goals that you set out to do.  Being a technology professional I quickly realized that I needed help so I started to surf the web to find those more knowledgeable in this area.  I quickly found several people that I’d like to recommend to you.  The first is Jeff Bullas who hails from down under (Sydney):

This guy is a Social Media ANIMAL!!!  Check out his twitter page and also his blog.  You will spend hours here learning new tips and tricks.  I’ve been following and reading him for the past few weeks!!!  I’ve also found some local people that are much more advanced than I on their Social Media Scale such as:

twitter.com/aaron116

livefromnj.com/

Between the two of these guys, you will greatly increase your Social Media knowledge.  I know I have.
