Just read this and thought I'd share:  Why Brands Should Be Human on Social Media.

Also, do any of you use Instagram?  Zazzle has recently included it in the upload images area for us.

No Instagram for me.  I've ranted over it enough though so I'll just point to my blog post from when I deleted my account.  Smile

I've always felt this to be important, and is why I use my real image, that pic is getting old but it's my brand so I stick to it.

Oh WOW  now I get where you're coming from, DUH... Informative blog Liz I don't use instagram. It's wildly popular among teens.

Thanks!  Yeah, they don't think beyond sharing and still think it's "cool" if a news agency or someone else rips off their photos and publishes them.  "Oh, man, they used my pic!  I must be good!"   *grumble gripe fume about clueless kids*

I've just read both articles and added the information to my learning curve.   I hadn't checked out Instagram yet, but those terms are really dodgy.  I don't think I will.

I did take to Twitter with a 'be authentic' frame of mind.  Then floundered.  It's so hard to be authentic, when you're trying to be authentic.   It's better to just be yourself.  LOL

Hee hee...

...feeling like your talking to nobody and everybody all at once.  That is how I feel on Twitter.
