Transparency and social media
So whatever happened to MySpace?
MySpace was definitely the number 1 Train Center Center when it comes to the launch of social media I mean… How many of us created pages in MySpace and added music and did all kinds of cool things to spice up their page? From online chatting to social media, the Internet is completely different number was 20 years ago. I believe that the only thing that’s the same is sitting in front of a computer screen for 20 hours without a bathroom break.
Of course I am exaggerating, but with the advent of Facebook, just, Pinterest, Instagram, kick, and other social outlets, Live online is completely different. So how much transparency do you want to offer up online? I think the most appropriate answer is related to how you are positioned online
For example is the Internet related to your business? Do you have newsfeeds etc. that may portray you in the wrong manner online? If you’re a stay at home mom, then transparency may be easier. If you have a smaller friend circle and you’re relatively intimately connected.
But if you’re like most of us who even if they are a stay at home mom, have a large social network, then it makes sense to be pretty picky about how you’re represented on mine.
One of my recommendations is for you to go out and buy your own name as a URL. Create manage and host your own website all about you. Share the things that you want to share and want to be known about you and don’t share the things that you would consider too personal.
This way you can refer people to your website if they want to know more about you. Save your rant about your ex and just post the things that are most appropriate for your day. On the social networks. For the rest, send them to your domain name. Don’t worry about how you write the articles and content on your website related to you. Most people right in the third person. Think about it this way. The Internet offers you the rare opportunity to create your own story. You can write your own book about yourself. You can make yourself shine and share the things that are intimate only as it occurs to be comfortable for you.
This way you have absolute control over your social profile. If you want to come off as a guru, you may even want to password protect some of your information. You can use word press or some of the domains registrars website builders and they often offer some kind of solution for a password protected area.
This is a lot of fun and it puts energy into something that is lasting.
These days uploading content and pictures and other forms of media and digital information has been made so simple that anyone can operate and own their own domain name. You no longer need a webmaster to help you put together your own blog.
Hey, you might even be able to generate some traffic from Facebook and other social media outlets to your blog and generate a small income on the side. The best way to do this is to register with different affiliate networks will allow you to post banner advertisements on your site anytime they the customers order or register using a link that you provided, you get paid a small commission.
It’s pretty nifty and New bloggers are popping up each and every day. Don’t think you’re an expert? It doesn’t matter, if you blog about something enough you will become an expert.
