Sometimes as I look around I see things that I don't quite understand. One of these things is from people that claim to be heavily into social media but I rarely ever see them engage in any conversations with anyone. They post their messages or such and once in a while something from someone else but that's about it.Tweet
It seems that they are missing something. How are you connecting with others when you never engage them in a conversation? How can you have social interaction but yet hardly udder a word that isn't just your own message? If you were talking to this person in real life person,face to face, is this how the friendship would go. They sit there, you tell them things and then you walk away? Seriously, how long do you think this would last?
Social media has also been recognized for the way in which it has changed how public relations professionals conduct their jobs. It has provided an open arena where people are free to exchange ideas on companies, brands and products. As stated by Doc Searls and David Wagner, two authorities on the effects of Internet on marketing, advertising, and PR, "the best of the people in PR are not PR Types at all. They understand that there aren't censors, they're the company's best conversationalists." Social media provides an environment where users and PR professionals can engage in conversation, where PR professionals can promote their brand and improve their company's image, be listening and responding to what the public is saying about their product. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_media
The highlighted section seems to indicate that there is a conversation going on or needing to go on. Conversations to my best knowledge involve more than one person just talking. It's about engaging with your friends, followers and everyone that is interested. They had hoped for more than you are offering which is no engagement just a stream of you and whatever message your trying to get out. "Trying" being the word to focus on as it won't work for long.
The reason they originally connected with you is that they probably thought you had something interesting to offer.
So do you have anything to offer before they move on or ignore you?
