The value of the individual & of creating lasting relationships

Oh - Wow! How did it get to be Wednesday afternoon already!? - lol - I hope you enjoy today's post :)

-- Quote of the Day --

“…Social Networking is the grouping of individuals into specific (interests). Traditionally this was done in person, but due tot he popularity of the Internet it is where social networking is done now. …The great aspect of social networking is that everyone of similar interest is somehow connected on each site. …It is not word of mouth anymore, it is word of mouse. …(With third party applications) you can enter keywords and follow people talking about those topics on social networking sites, and you can begin communicating with that user. There are dozens of effective third party applications, like tweetlater – where you can schedule tweets to go out when you are away from the office. …These all focus on keeping you in front of your customers for follow up sales but also helping you connect with new customers …and allow your customers to market for you. …Posting about an article, for instance, people can click on the link, comment on the article and my organic ranking on Google goes up.”
~ Mike Volkin Sept 2 – 2009

Today's quote was taken from a very interesting interview with online social networking expert, Mike Volkin. Check out the interview by clicking on the hyper-linked show title: Social Networking for Authors - or look to the right side of this blog for links to the Conscious Discussions talk radio show.

Incidentally, yesterday on the Conscious Discussions talk radio show I hosted another Positive Eco-news segment that focused on celebrating the potential in the average everyday person to be a global hero, simply by starting right where they are in the moment with small steps.
