Connecting With People on Twitter and Facebook – How to Use Social Networking to Enhance Your Life

Connecting with others on Twitter is good for so many reasons. I work full time on the internet, but I am also active in my local community. I have met many new people while tweeting, and I usually end up meeting them in person if they live nearby. So while my primary focus is on meeting new prospects and joint venture partners, meeting people who live close by is also important to me.

Today our speaker at my Rotary Club cancelled at the last minute. I am in charge of arranging programs right now, so I had to think quickly about what to do. I have a large following on Twitter, so I sent out a tweet asking if anyone was available to come and speak. Within five minutes I had five responses. My first choice for a speaker arrived at our club two hours later, in plenty of time to speak to the group on her topic.

The point I am making here is that you can use social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter or a variety of reasons. Don’t allow yourself to think that you can only use them for what you have always been doing. Use some creative thinking and ideas to see how else you can benefit from connecting with other people online.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing you have always done and expecting a different outcome. I challenge you to come up with some new ways to use social networking sites to do more business, help your community, or to make a difference somewhere in the world. Even though most of us are online to do business, business is just one small part of who we are.
