Best links from this week:
- 5 foundations of social media that no one talks about. Problogger’s so right on when they say a lot of social media is about being likable. (In other words, a popularity contest.)

Yes on the retweet button! …I hate how hard it is to look up who has RT’d me now!
I agree on the RT button. I use it occasionally, but I much prefer to just recap the tweet myself and maybe add my own spin to it, especially if it involves a link. It’s almost cheating, as if you are robbing someone else’s idea, but it’s definitely more original than hitting RT. I like to call it a prompt.
And thanks for the mention! Love yours as well!
I liked the video on the RTs. Thanks!
I discovered your site today, and I’m glad I did. Thanks for all your information about social media and platform building–definitely stuff I need to learn. I just joined twitter and haven’t really gotten my legs under me yet. I also love the premise for your memoir. Look forward to exploring more of your site.
