What are the personal advantages of social networking
According to everydaywisdom.com, “Definitely, it’s cheaper to use online social networking for both personal and business use because most of it is usually free. While personal use is rather simple for anyone, the business functions are underestimated by many. In a social networking site, you can scout out potential customers and target markets with just a few clicks and keystrokes, adding a boost to your usual advertisements and promotional strategies. It lets you learn about their likes and dislikes, which is tremendous. If you want to fine tune your business, then this is the way to go, whether on a budget or not.”
I know that personally, my blog got more views through social networking. I do not use it as often as I should, but every time I tweet, I get more visitors on my blog.
“You definitely can gain the customers’ confidence if you can connect to them on both a personal and professional level. Despite having to do a bit of work, it definitely pays off as you can be tapped for an offer if someone catches wind of your products or services. As long as you don’t pursue them too aggressively, you will do well here.”
And, “You are friends with people who have other friends, and so on. There is potential in such a common situation. By using a social networking site, you can do what you can and get connected with these people to form a web of connections that can give you leverage if you play your cards right. As long as you give as well as you recieve, then they will most likely stick with you. These connections are definitely valuable in the long run. ”
I have definitely made good, strong, and healthy friendships through social networking sites. Truly wonderful people are out there. Sometimes, they just do not live nearby, and you have to seek them. But, once you find them, you are golden. Things clear up, life becomes a happier place, and you gain confidence in yourself. You are worthy of someone’s friendship. I know it sounds cliche, but there is confidence in being heard (read?). It builds up your courage to say what you want to say.
With that, of course, comes the negatives. Not everything we say is worth saying, and I had to learn that by looking at my Twitter feed and realizing that some things are best kept to ourselves. Just remember to keep it anonymous, “You are putting out information about your name, location, age, gender, and many other types of information that you may not want to let others know. Most people would say be careful, but no one can be certain at any given time. As long as people can know who you exactly are, then some can find ways to do you in. ” And, look out for scams, “There is a potential for failure of security in both personal and business context. While many sites apply certain measures to keep any of these cases of harassment, cyber-stalking, online scams, and identity theft to an absolute minimum, you still may never know.”
But, done cleverly, social networking is very advantageous.
