Social Media for Technologists

Or how to create your online presence without really trying


I don't plan to try to talk you into trying social media


I'm assuming you've heard arguments from other sources, and hoping you might be interested but may not be sure how to start

But I may throw in an editorial comment here and there


Which Ones? ●

Twitter

LinkedIn

Facebook??

Blog


Twitter â—?

Easiest to start

â—?

Mix of business and fun


Twitter Messages ●

All 140 characters

Can include links –

And links are normally shortened

Can include picture in a way

All public


Twitter ●

Unit of connection is a follow

Follows are uni directional – –

If you follow me that does not say I follow you I have to follow you as a separate action.


#Hashtags ●

“Subjects”

Unstructured, ad-hoc, by convention


What do I Tweet About?!? â—?

If you would tell a friend about article, tweet it


The Twitter Breakfast Syndrome “I don't want to be on Twitter because I don't care what people had for breakfast� I have the solution for you...


DON'T FOLLOW PEOPLE WHO TWEET ABOUT BREAKFAST!


Other Notes ●

You don't have to read everything every day – –

Consider like reading a paper or browsing news You peek every once in a while and just see what catches your eye.
