12-Step Social Media Support Group Readings

social media
Twying Twitter is Step 10 in my AAse 12 Step Social Media Program for PR Pros. If you need more convincing that you should check out Twitter, go read Guy Kawasaki’s How Twitter Made My Website Better and Lee Hopkins’ Explaining Twitter.

In Step 4, I recommend the Common Craft videos to give brief, understandable introductions to social media topics. Jeremiah Owyang did a post yesterday on the Kommon Kraft knock-offs, which are well worth watching.

Part of an effective 12-step support group is getting together regularly to share experiences, insights and information as we are reordering our lives. Some groups even have a “buddy system” for participants to get support from each other in moments of weakness. If you want to be my Twitter buddy or Facebook friend, I’ll be happy to be part of your social media support network.

    Great information.

    Especially the 12 Twitter part. I wonder, how come I have not thought of this earlier.

    Thanks again,

    Thanks Brian! That’s SO gratifying to hear. It’s fantastic to see what you’re doing with social media in your department. I loved that the article in PC World said you don’t have money budgeted for these efforts…which is possible because all these services are FREE!

    What a nice thing to hear that I may have helped you in any way on this.

    Keep up the great work! I’ve subscribed to your feeds and look forward to watching what you’re doing in the future.
