#Facebook Talks: A Thought on #Social/#New #Media – And #Graduating in 2010 (#MMS)

27 Feb

Someone just recently asked me about LinkedIN and their graduation; a conversation ensued in FB Mail, so I took this looooong answer and created a blog post; also helps me showcase the rationales to a few other friends who think the water it’s too cold, deep, or otherwise murky to ‘dive in’…

[SPLASHES INTO A CANNONBALL!]

@ [OLD FBF!]

“Love reading the stuff you post!” (OLD FBF, 2010)

[SIDE SMILE… PUZZLED LOOK]

Really? then I’d make you my ONE reader!

[CHUCKLES… GUFFAWS]

Seriously; it’s sometimes a weird feeling when the ‘interacting’ stops, I know it was more profuse in the past because of specifics such as the election, the length of this recession (which by now has all worn us down to a nub!) and other topics.

Now I think most of the talk happens in FarmVille land, and that little time is available to talk; also, content has exponentially been ‘induced’ into Facebook, so the amounts are just overwhelming…

… and for someone about to graduate, I think time for you is like the most precious commodity, ain’t it?

[SNICKERS… SIGHS…]

Anyway… yeah, y’all 2010 Grads will be facing a HISTORICALLY sucky market; the good news?

Y’all are also the MOST talented ‘generation’ of grads to come out; many ascribe it to the fact that you’re ‘digitally enabled’

IMHO?

Just got a note from a Toastmasters in Dubai.

Go Global.
Expose Yourself
Curate these Sites as though your life depended on IT!
LinkedIN? PAY for the upgrade, and make it a point of getting PAST those 500+ connections in a minute; there, it’s obvious why you’re asking, so be courteous, yet assertive
Here? Create a Professional FB ‘Fan’ Page; make it ‘sound’ like your LinkedIN Profile (100% Business)
Use Networked Blogs to add some cool RSS’ing to it; creates a REASON to fan it; and for some of us, a reason to @Mention, Share and interact with YOUR Fan Page here in FB
…. and last but NOT least?

Dude… get on TWITTER!!!!

ASAP!

That’s where a LOT of people are getting their “Ticker Tape” fix… remember Homer Adams watching it intently?

That’s my best analogy for it; it’s fresh, breaking, and above all, relevant information.

Me?

Check out the info tab, there’s a handful of ID’s, pick at least:

@MMSocieties
@FJPalacio

The others are ‘convo’ -specific (i.e. Oralisimo = #LATISM; Papparazzos = #TOGS, etc)

AND LEARN THE LINGO!

Want more?

Sign up for our Meetup.Com place, I post all the vids, and most relevant of all, that’s the only place to get our ‘Slides’.

Okidoki, hope this helps – and answers! some more questions, Mr. Graduate

F.

P.S: Coffee? SURE!… the whole point of FBF’s is that eventually we DO get to meet them FTF!…

[CACKLES!]

O Tempora, O Mores!

Ci vedeamo!

[HUMS HAPPILY… THINKS TO HIMSELF: “I have a reader! at least ONE reader out there!… yay!”]
