Be yourself. And 7 other social media tips worth adopting

Last month I took part in a breakfast seminar hosted by Mynewsdesk. During my presentation, “Tales from the newsroom … and other lessons in social media”, I offered a handful of tips whether using social networks in a personal/individual capacity or as a company/organisation.

Among the tips were these eight:

1. Follow key influencers
2. Retweet and share interesting things
3. Write sells that really do sell
4. Tweet/Post to be retweeted/shared
5. Time your posts
6. Go niche
7. Be funny
8. Be yourself
