Symptoms of Depression vary but the causes of this common but complex disease is hard to understand which makes it more difficult to treat successfully.

So many lessons to be learned, but these are the ones that made perfect sense to me
1. consider what platform may benefit any post ( not just smaller posts)
2.you cannot afford to say anything online that isn't good, awesome, epic, useful, entertaining, or helpful. Every piece of conversation and content needs to be strategically part of the story you are trying to tell."
#contentstrategy  
 
Content is King

We all know this, but here's where bloggers get completely tripped up. Content doesn't just mean blog post. It means ANYTHING you say online. Every platform should tell your story. Every piece of content should be thoughtful, or funny, or helpful, or ...something. 

We need to pay attention to all our content, not just our blog posts. And it's important to choose the right platform for the content you are offering.

1. Is it just a quick funny post? Hashtag it and make it a Twitter conversation.
2. Is it a home renovation project? Create a Pinterest board.
3. Is it a 300-400 word post with one photo? Blog it right into Google plus.
4. Is it an in depth tutorial or commentary piece that needs space to flesh out? It goes on the blog.

Do these thoughts resound in you?

A few of my favorites are

10) A majority of social media marketers connect and engage with their peers and competitors, not their prospects.

23) Many social media “professionals” are arrogant and impatient with newbie ignorance or mistakes, instead of helpful.

34) Google Plus is NOT a replacement for Facebook, nor will it “kill” Facebook.

Why are these my favorites?  Because I relate to them!

A mindful post that I just read that I feel is worth your attention.
I have never heard of this particular trend by the way and I do agree with +Robert Alpha Avant  that this seems very silly and a waste of time.
 
A Ridiculous G+ Trend

Since social media strategy is my line of work, I am very keen on paying attention to how businesses interact and conduct themselves on it. This enables me to see what works and doesn't work (It is amazing what can be learnt by observing).

I use circlescope which is an app that gives me insight into my followers (who is not following me back, accounts that are inactive and so forth). As I use this app, I have noticed a trend that is unfortunately getting worse and I have to wonder what is going on in the minds of some businesses as they conduct their affairs on social media.

Here is the trend:

Follow someone and then a day or two later, unfollow that person. The thinking is that they will amass followers and subsequently establish a strong reputation and brand image. This is bunk.

It is a huge waste of time to spend following and then unfollowing someone. Time is money. That time could be spent building strong networking relationships which ironically is what that business is trying to accomplish. 

G+ is a fabulous community of serious business people. Spending time on it just to build a fake group of followers and thinking that this is establishing a brand is the worst thing you could do for your business. You are not going to get $1 dollar of profit from this flawed practice.

If you are not getting any profit from something, why are you doing it?

For the sake of this argument, let's just assume that you pick up one or two customers from this follow/unfollow operation. Would that offset the hours spent sitting in front of a computer mindlessly clicking away on profiles?

What conclusion do you think a savvy business person  will draw when they visit your social media sites to see if you are valid an all they find is dumb circle shares, cute animal pictures and epic fail shots?

You will never know about such losses as there is no track of them, but it is real. Most people search online before making a decision to go with a company. If you post nonsense, you are turning untold amounts of people away, all for the sake a few extra followers.

I am sorry to be blunt, but such foolishness is hurting your business. You are loosing money, reputation, and respect.

Think about how you conduct yourself on social media.

Thinking is the first step in establishing a strategy.

Thanks +Bogdan Fiedur for sharing this relevant post. I like best => "That time could be spent building strong networking relationships which ironically is what that business is trying to accomplish." 
Speaking of caves ... 'epic fail'?

I did a #slideshare   a while back about forums. While many people may feel they are "old school" the fact is they are still very popular.
I would love to see you thoughts about forums and lol, I would really love to see it shared.

I think I have been missing out on television, because I never heard of "Ugly Betty" before lol

This post does have some great points about your site being "ugly" and how it can affect you social media efforts
For example... 
-website loading too slow
-music playing when people come to your site
-the design is garish
etc.
Are you frustrated with social media and mobile marketing? You are not alone, many people can identify with you. https://affordablemobilemarketing.info/?mobile=3

Bogdan Fiedur - Entrepaneur and CEO of Adlandpro
Introduction
                                                                        
 I am proud to say that I am a Polish-Canadian Entrepreneur and the CEO of Adlandpro that has been successfully running since 1998.
 
What is Adlandpro?

Adlandpro  is one of the earliest social networks to be created on the web that has evolved from the forum setting and has been around longer than some of the now  popular social networks, such as Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter. Adlandpro attracts members through an exclusive social community that offers advanced privacy protection to all users plus many other features.

As well as being a social community, Adlanpro boasts a classified advertising site that has been serving customers since 1998 and through local search, people can find products and services in their home area.

After joining Adlandpro members have the opportunity to post free advertisements within the social network and even become verified affiliates of Adlandpro in order to generate a passive income.

According to one satisfied community member and Adlandpro affiliate, “I first signed up as an Adland Affiliate back in August, 1998 and since that time your excellent proactive website has sent more targeted traffic to my site than any other, with the exception of perhaps the top 6 search engines on which I am listed.”

As a man, I am happily married with children and have many interests from cooking, kayaking gardening and enjoy talking about many topics.  

G+ offers a unique and genuine opportunity for me to speak to like minded people and I look forward to getting to know all of you.
