What's Your 2 Cents?

I Want To Know What You Think

Serving and Social Media Part deux

waitress2Social Media can be the ,” interaction, and the manner in which information is presented, depends on the varied perspectives and “building” of shared meaning among communities, as people share their stories and experiences.

Being a server I feel the same concept applies.  If you have a different meaning of what your table thinks a good server is, you probably won’t get a good tip.  If you have a different view on  a certain subject, you could get a nasty comment on your blog, or Reddit post.

If you tell your table your favorite dish on the menu, and say its a chicken dish and they hate chicken (who hates chicken I don’t know) they will ignore your suggestion.  The same goes with your blog.  If you write about something no one cares about, they might read it once or twice, but that is it.  No one will care what you write, if you write about nothing important.

This is where as a server, or a social media specialist you have to think long and hard on what people want to hear and what they need.  If you know your restaurant is known for their shrimp dish, and you HATE shrimp you have to know how to sell it.  Same goes in social media.  You might not like what a client specializes in, but you have to know how to find the right niche to get their attention.

And this is where I am stuck in my new role in social media.  I am still in the stage of getting the right “friends” on Digg and other websites.  Once I can get a good network of friends and people who will not only Digg my submissions, but go to the websites as well I will be able to actually feel more accomplished.  Until then I will have to understand everything new takes time, and keep chugging along.

Stumble it!
