It Really Is Social!

Boring*Oh I am so annoyed today!!!

I was out last night with a group of friends for a couple of after work drinks, one of them bought along an old school friend of his… As soon as he entered the pub and was introduced he just went on and on about himself, what he did at work, and basically how brilliant he was, when any of use went to contribute to the conversation he simply talked over us… To say the experience was unpleasant was an understatement… The guy just went on and on, you get the picture…

What I am trying to get at it is this sort of behaviour is not accepted in the ‘real’ world and this applies to the ‘online’ world also…

If you are a brand and you enter the social media space and constantly bang on about your products and services you are going to annoy lots of people… Had the afore mentioned person engaged us with witty banter, his views on the state of the music industry or simply listened to what we had to say then I am sure he would have been invited back to our after work, chew the fat sessions…

So remember, engage and entertain when you enter the online social media / network space and you will have friends, fans and followers for life…

Rant over…
