At last count, I had 33 profiles on 30 different social media related sites. Rest assured that I am not active on all of them. I haven’t the time. That may beg the question of why I have so many to begin with. There’s a long answer…with me there’s always a long answer…but in the interest of brevity, suffice to say I’m curious about social media, what various apps do and how people use them. And the best way to do this is to, well, use them.
For several months, I’ve thought how cool and smart it would be to put these profiles to work for me by folding them into a sort of virtual portfolio illustrating my knowledge base, skill set, and interests. I think it’s time to stop thinking and start doing
And because every good goal has constraints… I will update my profile on at least one social media application each week until I have completed all of them. This will take at least 33 weeks, but probably more as I’ve probably forgotten about a few accounts and I’m likely to sign up for a few more along the way. I will start with LinkedIn.
