How to Use Social Media Networking To Help Recharge Your Life

Millions of people around the world are using Facebook, Myspace, Linked-In, Twitter, as well as the other Social Media Networking (SMN) sites. These sites started out to keep in communications with family and friends. Wow, that’s great, right? But this can also be used as a tool to meet new people, network with others that share the same interests or keep tabs on what other people are doing that you might have similar interest with. And let’s not forget about the dating sites! I have known many that have met and have very successful relationships.

For example, I met a wonderful woman, Deb Bailey, @powerwomenmagazine on Twitter. Never did I imagine that a few tweets (messages) here and there would have created a wonderful friendship that would also turn into me having a my own column on her online magazine, www.powerwomenmagazine.com, call ‘Woobie’s Corner’. And I am also her guest speaker on her radio show on May 5th at 11:00am est.! (Please listen and call in, go to www.powerwomenmagazine.com and click on radio show) Then I met another women named, Mel Robbins, www.melrobbins.com/radio and I was a guest on her radio show. And I can go on and on about all the doors that have and are opening for me. Would this be possible if not for Twitter, maybe, but it would be a lot harder and take a lot longer to connect with these wonderful people. (I take that back, I properly would never have connected with my new friends, they all live in different areas of the world.)

The power of Social Media Networking can really change your world by opening new doors of opportunity, if you use it correctly.

There is a right and wrong way to create a profile to communicate with others you have yet to meet. Countless times I have come across someone that has such a negative profile that I may not even want to respond to. I’m sure they are great people in general; on the other hand their profile pictures, posts, and comments say an entirely different thing. If you or someone else is looking to connect with someone on a business level, first make sure that your profile is presentable before making contact. What do I mean? Example: do not have your main profile picture where you are hanging out by a keg stand partying or giving the bird to the photographer. Another thing is make sure the information displayed on your profile is nothing personal that you would not want your boss, children, or parents to see. Keep in mind; your new contacts do not know you personally, so it will be hard to tell what may be sarcasm. Try to keep your profile as neat as possible. If you would like to have a separate business account from your personal account, this is fine just make sure your personal account is set to private since the two can easily be identified. Clue: Even though you’re behind the screen and not face to face, you still need to look good!

Once your account is created and ready for take off, let the communication begin! Search for people that you have an interest in and begin socializing with them about that topic but on a friendly basis not an advertising basis. You will be amazed at the knowledge you will retain from a complete stranger! The possibilities are endless when you connect with new people. Who knows, one day you might be a guest on a radio show, just like I have and will be!

OK, so here you go!

Find the SMN that you like and want to get involved with

Create an account

Search for others that you would like to communicate with and watch who they are communicating with, (people find new friends through new friends).

Keep your communication friendly, you are building relationships and share what you do, but keep it friendly and …

Have fun with it, just like any website that involves communication BE CAREFUL!

    Hi Lyn-Dee- This email is going out to you, because I was at the PPl functin yesterday with my friend Rodney (who I met on the bus coming back from Oklahoma last year!) Rob M always says the function just finished is the best one yet. However, Rodney and I both agreed that yours really was THE BEST and I also want to thank you for the 2 thoughtful gifts that you gave me. I will display them proudly at our Briefing tomorrow night. Your new friend (I hope) Clare
