Social media has been an interest to me as soon as I heard
the phrase. Having remembered chat rooms
on dial-up modems in AOL software that came in the mail, I’m amazed even today
how far things have progressed. As you
may have noticed, I like to consider myself a social media tinkerer. To my friends, I may be more of an expert,
but that is somewhat subjective. I just
have more experience and actively hunt down more things to play with on my
phone and iPad.
The three biggest services I use regularly are Facebook,
Foursquare, and Twitter. I have also
played with Gowalla (Before they got bought by Facebook), Whrrl (Before it shut down), Shopkick, WeReward, and other
new social media startups. I usually
find these startups in the various tech news websites I read from
everyday, such as Mashable or Techcrunch. I have a lot of experience using Yelp, Google
Places, and finding other areas to post information about coming events.
I am a big fan of collaboration and use Google Docs
extensively throughout my day to keep things organized with other people. The phrase “Two heads are better than one” is
one that I believe to be very true. (So
is, “Too many cooks in the kitchen.”) I
am always on the lookout for new ways to keep things organized not only in my
life, but also in The N Crowd.
If you would like to incorporate social media into your website or business, contact me. I can take my years of experience and use it to increase your presence in this area. Together we can create a strategy for you and your business.
