Danny Brown over at Press Release PR has been running a series called “discussing social media with…” today I participated in the series and answered several interesting questions about social media. Here is a sample from the interview which can be found on Danny Brown’s Site:
If someone was to ask you for your definition of social media, what would it be?
I would define social media as any tool, platform, or site that allows for collaboration or the sharing of information. Pretty much anything that allows people to talk or have a conversation with each other online.
What is your reason for using social media?
I use social media to build relationships with people. I build these relationships by sharing information and experiences and by interacting with people online. Social media has been a very valuable resource in terms of building trust and authority for me. Social media is also the most effective way to build and create an online presence. If you have the best product or service in the world but nobody can find you, then you don’t exist. It’s not enough to be great, you have to market great too.
