Some People really need their own Social Network…

8 09 2010

One key component in developing your Social Network (i.e. Linkedin / Facebook / twitter/ etc…) is not only your connections but the quality of those connects.  More so when you participate in Group Forms and post.

At first you try and keep things simple, stay on topic yet not to soap box.   You always try an adhere to the rules of the group – language / direction / promoting products -services.   These general guidelines are “somewhat” overseen by the Group administrator or so we would think.  Often that is not the case.   Which leads to somewhat uncontrolable kaos.

This can be damaging.  Especially when the intent of your effort is to connect with a group of Professionals, share – perhaps learn and you slowly come to realize these same people are who I’m trying to avoid.  Not because the same subject can be posted through out 7+ similiar groups but these same individuals make an appearance bearing the same attitude.

One approach is actually “Hinding” the different groups you belong to.   Which is good from the point, to many, questions your reasoning when one views your profile.    The second: privately responding to individual post(s). 

Social Networking is about meeting new individuals.  Or in my case a True business connection to conduct potential business.   The challenge is finding a simple means of contacting potential prospects without the classic “PAY a Membership FEE” which doesn’t guaranty anyone would accept your polite solitation. 

There are many self-proclaimed Guru’s of Social Media.   I have only come across a few that can actually CLAIM success, that success is focused on selling the correct approach to SN.  Kind of reminds you of the Real Estate programs that flooded the market…

Some where in my journeys I will find the right vehicle, pose the right question and attract the right individuals, I so eagerly want to meet.  But truthfull if they don’t do anything except build a basic profile, don’t have any connections and don’t except msg’s…..I’m pretty much back to square one…
