So glad Avinash broke his own rule long enough to inject some sanity into the world of Social media metrics!

4 Incredible Social Media Metrics

http://goo.gl/eNU6w

Most social media efforts suck. Partly because so many people/brands don't get social media. Partly because they don't understand what success looks like.

The above post is to fix the latter problem. I outline what success in social media means and, because I'm writing this :), share metrics that will force you into optimal social media participation.

Enjoy!

PS: Please share your feedback via comments on the blog. Arigato.
4 incredible social media metrics help crystallize effectiveness of your SM efforts: Conversation, Amplification, Applause & Economic Value.

I thought this was a phrase my kids invented to describe my cycling efforts : )

I am really warming up to the phrase "slow cycling" to describe non-competitive bikes and riding. Not that non-racing need be slow. ;-)

Good to know what they're thinking.
U. 34. D. How do you intend to incorporate Blogger into Google+? U. 31. D. What do you think are the worst aspects of Hashtags, and how would you fix them? U. 29. D. Where do you see Google+ in 2 year...

Thanks Chris - hopefully this will encourage others to seek help and human connection before it's too late.

Depression is an Offline Event

In the last several weeks, two people that I've known from online have taken their lives. In both cases, there were tweets or Facebook posts or Google+ updates that hinted that things might be falling apart. But we rarely notice such posts. We rarely hear them loudly, because they aren't Siri jokes or cats dressed like astronauts.

Depression is tricky. People seeking to connect and get solace online, it's not really going to help. You can't count on your Twitter following to pull you out of a depression. You can't feel floored when your online friends don't hear you loud and clear. Remember that everyone is living out their own biography, and they might not be as aware of what's been going on with you.

Seek help offline. Visit a priest or a rabbi or whatever religious person makes sense. Visit a shrink. Talk to your doctor. Often times, depression is a medical problem that is exacerbated by experiences happening in your environment.

You're not alone, but the online world makes it really hard to see your pain. Things move too fast, are too shiny, and we are all hurrying around. The online world can make you feel more alone when you're feeling sad.

Get help early. Don't feel like you are a failure because you need some help. The strongest people in the world get help often, in many forms. You are worth it. Please, seek help offline and then come back and chat with us, too. Okay?
