Posts Tagged ‘social networking’

I felt into social media several months ago, and travelled a lot since, thoughout news, posts, apps and meets. I don’t remember how it began, but there’s one thing I know for sure, is that I’m feeling better. It’s not only a “logo” affair, there a wild industry out there, crowling and managing with people. Obviously, I didn’t have time to try all you can find on the web, but with some patience, accuracy and a taste of discovering, you can be surprised if you like to. I found a good book too, that helped me reshaping landscape, regarding these fields of no man’s land…It’s an awesome collection of what exists as social apps, sorted by country, it’s not supposed to be complete, but great and long job by An de Jonghe, I met in Belgium. Let’s take the cruise and fall into this weird trip with me and fellows I’ve met: The social apps. This is the first part of my secret journey, for you on evidencesx’s network.

#1: What you do and who you are, are not useful for everyone, but help you to show your real profile.

Why have you a large interest to show you on the web? Because you’re not alone, and lots of people want to know you better, want to find you for your speciality, want to give you a better job, want to buy your advices, well some obvious reasons to get into the race…without racing. There’s nothing to win or lose, but to be there, exist, and give a vision of you in the most real profile; don’t cheat it’s dangerous, web’s going faster, the best goes fast, but the worst too…

You can find on this picture some of them that will help you, in the following weeks. You’re not registered? Run and choose one or more of them. You sign up, log in and start you personal story: personal profile, professional situation, skills, hobbies, education, who you know, what you can say about them (recommendations, endorsements). Your professionnal life, experiences, companies, responsabilities and jobs, will help people to shape your pro life, keeping you in a jobs network. Then start searching your next first followers: family? friends? jobmates? people you want to meet, talk? but respect the rules: everybody  has to fight “spam-sport” and mail-invasion-attitude; as soon as the mail has been created, people strangely recovered writing ability again, because of fluent facility to do it. Sendind anything, despite the target…but the target is you too, think about it, before approaching anyone: what can you bring to other people, they don’t have/need? Why have they an interest to know you (better)? As you’re regular, polite and not too noisy people, jump and try, there’s a lot to learn and share. You’ve just created your first circle of trust, that is going to follow you all your digital life…and maybe will share all your professionnal goals, emotions, success. And maybe will help you to find others on the next step, by endorsing people you know, by experiences you had with them; don’t hesitate to comment profiles you liked, another rule is that when someone recommended you, you’re so kind to send back the compliment. Someone that is involved in recommendations, is open to contacts and careful about peoples, and we speak here about human relations…people you tamed will give you access to their own circle and then, yours will enlarge…

Finally, after circles of trust, you can join groups, sorted by envies, skills or profiles, to focus on the things you like more, targeting your time and audience in a more accurate way.

convinced? no more? try, it’s easy, takes two minutes and free. Get leveraged as ever, boost your reputation, deal with the best, and live with your time. You can even surprise your children, those who have digital blood since they are born…

Let’s stay wired, don’t zap, no ad screen, no boring screen fail, soon for the #2 episode of these amazing stories on social board: what you like and what you share.

It’s written in the books : we won’t be alone anymore because of “social networking”. Well…Such a great promise, such a temptation, why will we have to wait so long for ?We, at the prices of so much times on the web, searching and tracking new people, we call “friends”, without even know anything about, just like new hunting prices, new mesure of power.

Next NYSE, will it ever be the petrol price or gold, but the number of friends. Interesting, speculation about people that we don’t ever know.
It’s just like, human being was unable to communicate, unable to create warm and value, with true relations. Like if we, in the contrary, have fear of the “other”, of real relationship, just like single households, with young people who doesn’t want to marry anymore.
And we create false evaluation, false “friends”…”Well it’s good to have Mrs or Mr in my relation”, “oh God, you don’t know Mr…?”, so long, so nuts.

What about the true way of life ? What about comparing, debate about social minds, political and technical opinions, what about just “touch” its double, its neighbour.
I see famous hunters, without firing any ball, with their “hunt board” : “good day, I had xx more targets today…” ; and what for ? to make any career opportunity more ? to never post and pay attention to these “targets” ?
They really haven’t any consideration of social behavior…And the worst thing, is someone can do like, for years before being unmasked…

Let’s considering the topic on other side : the chance of being connected without travelling, with the entire world. Great chance, that lots of people even today don’t have. Think about third world, and their far away distance from this…
And let’s really appreciate each day, how we can do it : connecting people, to reduce unequalities, digital fence, and share ideas, feelings, know-hows. The high speed education, information with respect of anykind of opinion and so far.
A Marketplace, democracy of good sense, where everyone listen each other, and share without force anyone out of reason.


Technology grows fast. Faster than the consequences (so good, so bad) involved into ; only human can think about that and control the machine. We, always decide, the result of our acts.
It’s a question of being aware of this state, before acting. An important question, maybe THE question of survivance of technology race, to serve people.
Create value for the people, not to be slave of fashion stuffs, which will never give anything to eat to hungry people. Which will never help anyone.
Everybody has a secret to deliver to other. It’s when we are aware of our chance, and how we can influence or help anybody else, that we will make social network, a bulk progress.

We must think about that, – and I know now you will -, when you will add next friend to Facebook. And comment this subject.
