#15 Spread by Sharing Content on Twitter

#15: Spread by Sharing Content on Twitter

I found this list of reasons why people tweet from The Simple Web Toolbox.

  • To learn new things
  • Connect with people in their industry
  • Publicize themselves or their company
  • To draw traffic to their blog or website
  • Create a network to disseminate information on a social cause (i.e. education, animal rights, etc.)
  • To consolidate researching on the web by following people who provide links in a particular subject area
  • To make friends

It got me thinking about how Chris Brogan uses Twitter.

#3: Give Respect, Get Respect

Sometimes people go nuts on Twitter (see Rockson Tan vs YPAP Leader) or Facebook (The Facebook Douche Bag by the Oatmeal).

We laugh hearty har-har at them, but it bugs me that we can’t get along with each other even in a virtual world.

But social media is quite like real life. We “meet”, we “talk”, we share stories and content, all things that we do when we’re with real-life friends. Like all things in real life, social media is about how you say things and how you “act” in the community.

  • “Please” and “Thank Yous” are always appreciated
    Be polite.
  • Show patience and kindness to newbies
    They might not know what they are doing. Just take it that they’re naive.
  • Don’t diss the community that you’re in
    Would you diss your host in real life?
  • Treat people like you’d want to be treated
    Would you want to be told that you’re worthless, stupid or a waste of space? Probably not.

Essentially it boils down to – give respect to others, and you’ll be given respect. Do check out my 6 Don’ts in Social Media post for things that you shouldn’t do in any social media network.
