Who is not known to Facebook? You are a student, employee in any firm or even a home person everyone is
familiar with the famous social network. It has become our habit to upload the status for even the minuscule work we do. We upload the photos so that everyone can see what we are doing. It is considered ‘cool’ to be seen as active in the world of Facebook (fb). Though fb is mostly to connect with friends and family, there are others like LinkedIn and twitter that are also becoming popular day by day.
Recently I read an article which actually describes about how you can gain advantage from social media. It actually explains the five ways to get social with these social networks. Firstly to start anything, you should have clear aim of what is the use and why you want to use it? Secondly the article focuses on to channelized your energy into the right direction which means that only join those communities that are beneficial for you. It is necessary to be heard by people. Thirdly to influence to take action this is manifested in the Egypt revolution. There was a young Egyptian-born Wael Ghonim, who is a senior marketing executive at Google who actually uses the Facebook page for the mutiny in the Egypt that causes Hosni Mubarak to step down as President. Whereas, fourth and last is to listen to your audience-for instance if you write an article and share it in the Facebook so you receive the comments from your network friends. Whereas, if write a blog there are feedbacks by the readers which help you in your further writing. Though at times they exaggerate a lot, but there are some who criticize positively and they are your real feed backers.
All in all, it is an interesting piece and an informative one as well. Although it is because of one line that really impels me to read the article: “Silence in itself conveys a message, so listen carefully!”
