You post a status update or share information, people reply or comment on this, or you notice that they have viewed your profile – do you comment or reply?

One of the major things you hear people complain about when it comes to Social Media, is that sometimes, it is very one-sided, even when your posts, comments and updates are very informative. The question is, do you acknowledge everything and interact?

  • On Facebook – people follow you, comment on your posts and like your posts, what do you do?
  • On Instagram – people follow you, like your photo and post a comment, what do you do?
  • On LinkedIn – people view you, people ask to connect to you, like your posts and comment on your posts, what do you do?
  • On Twitter – people follow you, tweet you and re-tweet you, what do you do?

The above are just four examples of Social Media platforms and what happens, so what are your answers to “what do you do”?

  • Do you ignore?
  • Selective answer?
  • Or reply to every thing that people do to your various aspects of Social Media?

When you start becoming very popular and have lots of interaction, at what point do you hold back on replying to everything and thanking people for interacting you?

This can always be a hotly debated topic and one where there is not always a right or wrong answer or is the answer selective based on the platform? Do you reply to everything on LinkedIn but not everything on all the other platforms, for example? Or just reply to everything you are able to, in that moment of time that you have just come on-line for?

At the end of the day – what is important? Is it that you use certain platforms for your business? So you only reply to comments or posts in-connection to your business? Do you acknowledge or thank people who have followed you, liked your items or shared them?

Personally, I think you need to be undertaking, what is of major influence and engaging to help you and your business develop and grow. That way, you are not only learning but you are engaging and influencing with your Circle of Influence to create to a network of connections that truly benefits you.

Using iOS – have you looked lately at Facebook?

Have you checked your Facebook page properly when using iOS on the iPhone and then the iPad?

If you go to your profile, it is offering you to update your profile. The details are similar to how you should have your profile on LinkedIn.

This detailed approach can be seen as one of two ways. Either they are wanting to get you to give a complete and accurate view of your life which I can’t see anything wrong with. Or on the other hand, what a great move by Facebook.

Facebook are allowing you to do what LinkedIn does by creating a complete CV of yourself but with the addition of including your music, film and book interests – what a clever thing they have done……

By getting you to compile all this information they are able help drive the information (which they think you are interested in) to your page whether via sponsored posts or advertising.

So, in summary, make sure you update your page as this is a great thing in my opinion. Yes, you may think it is providing too much information to Facebook or they are being too intrusive but in reality, it is #Engagement!

It is time to engage and share your information. You are being open to show credibility and history so people can see your background and thus make them more willing to engage with you. This engaging and sharing of information gives you the chance work and connect with people who you want to connect with and have similar backgrounds and interest.

It is time to #Engage – are you ready to share and engage…….
