One of the more difficult things to get a handle on is what to write for your social media updates.

Are you being too personal? Are you being too monotonous? Why isn’t anyone answering your questions?

I really appreciate the ideas in this infographic, particularly the recommendation not to ask a bunch of questions. I think it’s a keen insight about how you value people’s time, and it could skew the give-get dynamic in the eyes of some Fans.

Let me know what you think about this one. :)

I aspire to give people something to think about rather than tell them what to do. My favorite Google Alert is "social media research," I am increasingly compelled by Gen Z, and I appreciate good writers agnostic of where they write. At one time I was Kred's 12th most influential social media blogger and Klout's most influential person on the topic of David Hasselhoff. Transplant from Seattle living in Cincinnati. Haven't entirely adopted the local sports teams yet.
