There are as many recipes for success in the sphere of social media as there are bloggers and tweeple out there. I personally think the only thing we need to do to be successful with social media is to BARF!
B. – Be creative and original, be knowledgeable and interesting
A. – Accept other’s views and opinions, without necessarily backing down on your own
R. – Read between the lines, and find new lines to read, search for what you want to know and for new people you want to get to know
F. – Fear not! You are original, you are creative. You have your knowledge and you are interesting. But never stop learning!! And never stop teaching that which you now.
