Using Influence Responsibly

By Cheval John

I do not have an “official” blog post for this week.

However, I will mention it is important to know everyone are influencers in their respective space.

Just because you are not recognized by a major publication does not mean you do not have influence.

People always do great work in making their friend’s life better by sending an encouraging note or message with social media.

Especially with 19 million plus blogs in the world, you have a voice.

The only thing I would tell you is use your voice responsibly because you have an impact on everyone.

And to sum up this post, I want to recognize Dr. Karen Freberg and Dr. Ai Zhang on their research on teaching social media education in universities, which was recognized as a top paper at a major conference in Chicago.

Both of them are walking the talk about being social on social media and are influencing their university students to use social correctly.

Don’t Write Off Social Media

By Cheval John

The most successful entrepreneurs are the ones who are willing to learn new skills that will help them to expand their business.

The above statement is true for the business professionals, professors and anyone else who are making a living for the better.

The ones who believes that they know everything are doomed to fail.

The reason is that the “know it alls” are blind to the ever changing world of technology and the changes that are happening in their respective industries.

Take the example of a statement from many professionals who “believed” that “social media is just a fad and it will go away.”

They are now losing out on quality business because they fail to see the importance of social media.

They also fail to realize that the millennial generation will not purchase a product or service if they don’t trust a particular brand.

For example, the Sacramento Kings are dominating the NBA due to their willingness to engage with their fans.

Dr. Karen Freberg and Dr. Ai Zhang are leading their universities students by example by building their own audience on social media.

Dr. Zhang in particular has built her Twitter audience to over 3,000 due to her hard work and willingness to interact with their audience.

So if you still believe that social is still a fad, then I wish you luck because you will one day end up like Nokia, who end up getting acquired by Microsoft due to their failure to adapt to the changing world of technology.
