Making A Human Connection In Social Media

Does that avatar look familiar?

Yes, that's right, it's my new Facebook page.

I consult with clients on social media issues as a matter of course. Our work ranges from developing and implementing a comprehensive social media strategy to putting pages online and extends to ghost posting of tweets and updates.

What I haven't done is put a personal page on either Facebook or Twitter. Given that, I couldn't create a fan page for The Gonzo Papers.

Instead I created a page as a blogger. Of course, Facebook wouldn't accept any derivation of Kilroy_60. No, you'll find me on Facebook as, Kil Roy. Ho Ho.

These are my first 123 Facebook friends...

It won't come as news, nor as a surprise, to anyone I've known as a blogger over the past four years that I set up this page on Facebook {as well as a Twitter page} to extend the reach of The Gonzo Papers.

Meeting new people through social media is fun, I'll grant you, but there's no good reason to devote time to it lacking a Human Connection.

If we are friends on Facebook and/or mutual followers on Twitter let's make a point of connecting. I'm as happy to give bloggers a boost who have content they want to get out as I am to get a bump.

Posterous is becoming very popular as an online place to post thoughts, pictures and anything else that's important to you.
