Social media cheat sheet

Ever get overwhelmed with all of the social media sites available? You’re not alone. This infographic is a great resource. It provides an overview of the main social media sites, their pros and cons, key features, and how to get started with each. Very helpful, indeed.

Just make sure you have a strategy first and that you’re NOT using them all the same way. The biggest mistake I see made in social media land is posting random comments and pushing them out to as many social platforms as possible. Just think about it. If you followed you, would you really want to read the same boring status update on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn? Probably not. Remember that you’re writing for a target reader. Keep it about them, not you, and use each social outlet according to the target that follows you there.

Enjoy the infographic!
