Social Media Tips for Everyone

This week in class we finished up the book I've been telling you guys about, "The Art of Social Media" by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick. This book was one of the best books I've ever been required to read for a class, and if you're a social media noob like me you'll probably resonate with a good portion of it. However, there are a lot of things I learned that I definitely will be using in my (hopefully) future career in social media. This book taught me that there is an actual science behind social media, believe it or not, and it is not just a free for all.

Here are some social media tips I think everyone can learn from this book:

1. Promote but don't overshare.

2. Hashtag your posts, honey.

3. PICTURES PICTURES PICTURES. Always use pictures.

4. ALWAYS keep it classy.

5. If you're bored, they're bored.

6. Sell yourself but don't buy followers.

7. Use your posts to tell a story

8. Limit the selfies, ladies.

9. Be your biggest fan. If you don't enjoy your own content no one else will either.

10. HAVE FUN. Social media is all about you, obviously. Be who you want, share what you want just as long as you're enjoying it (and you're being nice, that's also important.)

Thanks always for reading and supporting me! We're done with this book, and next week we'll start another one together. Subscribe to this blog if you feel so inclined, leave comments with your favorite social media down below, I'm curious! Have a wonderful weekend, I hope you can find something to laugh about today!


  1. I totally agree with your 'top10' and thats exactly the reason I didn't enjoy reading the book too much. Yes, I learned some convenient tricks, but I was hoping for more information. The fact that you can sum up the book in ten steps like that says a lot for me.
    You really seemed to enjoy reading it, according to your blog. What was it you liked so good about it, what made it different(and better) from other readings?
