Keeping up with all the social media sites can be challenging. Yesterday I posted on Twitter, G+ and Instagram. I’m having trouble finding time to keep up with Facebook or to learn Periscope. It’s always interesting to see which posts spark the most engagement on which site. I can post something that initiates a long conversation on Twitter, yet that same post will be lukewarm on G+ and vice versa. It all got me thinking about content, and what kind of content is the most popular on each social network.
I read today that 87% of all customer service related comments on social media are ignored by brands. I don’t know if that number is correct, but if it is, it seems high to me. That is a lot of ignored tweets, Facebook feedback, Instagram comments and other social media opportunities for engagement that are just dangling out there somewhere.
Creativity and how it affects our workflow is very interesting to me. Some people talk about it like it’s a bolt of inspiration that consumes them at unexpected times. Others, like me, just think of it as a way of looking at the world. There are definitely times when creativity flows easier than others. Are there things we can do to help it along? Are there things that will open or shut the door to creativity? According to this infographic, the answer is yes.
If you’re a huge Star Wars fan like me, you find a way to relate almost everything in your life to a Star Wars character. Any diehard Star Wars fan knows that our entire existence as human beings can be dissected down into a battle between good and evil. Okay, maybe not, but thinking about Star Wars sure makes the workday go by faster!
Speaking of the workday, what Star Wars character are you at work? This fun little flowchart will help you determine if you’re working on the dark side. Or, maybe your boss is secretly the Emperor, which could explain a lot about the morale of everyone in your office.
Those who know me know that I’m one of the biggest Star Wars fans in the world. My lovely Twitter friends send me Star Wars stuff almost every day to tweet. If it’s happened in the world of Star Wars, I’ve watched it, read about it or written about it. I remember a while back when the first Jedi School opened.
It immediately got me thinking about being an entrepreneur, and how cool it would be if there were a Jedi School for entrepreneurs. You could go in as an entrepreneurial Padawan and come out as a Jedi Master.
