Social Media Expert?

Is there such thing as a social media expert?  There are many individuals out there who blog about social media and social networking, including me.  There are certainly leaders out there who have more data and insight on the topic than others but how does one sort through all the information out there to devise a plan or goal that works for you.  Ultimately, it is up to the individual to determine what their goal is and how they want to interact in each space.  I recommend reading what you have time and interest for on the subject and determine for yourself what makes sense.  What works for one person may not work for you and may not be your goal.

 

Ask yourself simple questions, here are a few samples:

• What is my ultimate goal for this site?  Job hunt, professionally network, socially network, etc.

• What information do I want to share?  Am I comfortable putting personal information and pictures on sites, do I keep it more professional or a smattering of both?

• What will be the opinion of me when others search for me and come across my information?

 

Spend some time on this and consider your options and goals, it makes all the difference.
