How To Create Compelling Social Media Profiles
Brent Csutoras, Search Engine Land | 1/29/08
Congratulations to our winner! Here’s a choice bit from the winning post:
There are two ways you can present yourself through your profile. You can either be yourself or take on a persona. When you choose to be yourself, you limit the freedom and anonymity you can have within any given social community. You have to watch what you say and what you submit, as it will have a bearing on your intentions and reputation. Additionally, you open the door for people to research you and possibly link you to any content or product you might be trying to promote.
The top two runners-up in public voting were:
- Link Attraction Factors: Getting Dugg and Going Viral
Dan Zarrella, ReadWriteWeb | 2/20/08

Brian Solis | 8/5/08
