The first thing you need to do is pick the right social network. Yes, there’s a lot of them. Whether it’s Facebook, whether it’s LinkedIn, whether it’s Twitter, it’s up to you on which network you want to be on. You could be on all of them but if you’re in all of them you’re not gonna spend enough time to make these profiles amazing.

Now that you’re creating content, the next thing you need to do is build a connection. And you need to build a connection with people, it’s a social network. Just because you’re on a computer doesn’t mean you’re not connecting with humans. So make sure you’re friending all the people that you know, following them. You’re engaging, right you’re building connections.
