Social media douchebaggery
If you’re a douchebag in real life, guess what? You’re an even bigger douchebag online because social media amplifies who you are.
You could be a real, genuine human being making an effort to be useful to others.
Or you could be an anonymous troll whose only purpose appears to suck air and tear others down.
Same is true from a business perspective. A lot of businesses are not ready for what social media can do because at their core, they are not ready for what social media will do.
As you think about how you might use social media, don’t forget your people skills. Dale Carnegie was one of the best social networkers, even though he was around long before the internet.
