[Twitter] 4 Ways to Make Sure You Always Have Something to Say Online
Hashtags: It used to be that #hashtags were used almost exclusively on Twitter. 'It’s probably the most common problem faced by business owners who use social media and blogging for their business: What am I going to say? What can I post that is topical, interesting and valuable? Stoked with enthusiasm and lots of great ideas, they start blogging, posting and tweeting away. But that’s like hopping into a car and expecting to drive forever. Everything goes along smoothly until the fuel runs out. It’s a big reason why so many company blogs and social media accounts are abandoned.

According to the statistics, about five to six hundred million people daily visit social networking sites like facebook and twitter. Since the last decade, social media has become a major source in promoting health awareness. Many newspaper articles, magazines, blogs, websites and social networking sites help in spreading awareness about many diseases. They provide knowledge about how to prevent and overcome from these diseases. These articles mainly consist of information about different diseases and precaution methods to avoid these diseases.

Google isn’t so great at supplying real-time results, but social media certainly is (there is a reason why deals have been cut between Bing, Twitter, Google and Facebook this week). There has been a lot in the news lately about companies banning social media in the office. The USA Today reported on October 22, 2009 in their Snapshot®* that 54% of companies completely block Facebook, whereas another 35% apply some form of limits. That leaves only 11% that don’t put any limitations on Facebook use in the work force. Why does this feel like déjà vu? in the work place. Probably not.

If a member complains about something, the challenge isn’t to resolve the complaint. It’s to make sure future members don't complain about the same issue. This takes more time in the short term. Yet it saves a LOT of time over the long-term. Getting into this mindset is important. The challenge with any issue is not resolving it, but to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
