Things I Learned by Reading The Art of Social Media

Over the weekend I read The Art of Social Media: Power Tips for Power Users by Guy Kawasaki and Peg Fitzpatrick,  on my Kindle. I mention that I read this in ebook form only because I missed out seeing a few graphics and embedded screenshots clearly because my Kindle screen shows images like that in smallish grey scale. To get the full effect, I’m going to pick up a paper copy of the book as well.

I don’t consider myself to be a social media newbie by any means, so I was a bit skeptical as to how much I could actually learn. Just to play it safe, I checked it out from my library to see what I could glean from The Art of Social Media.

So, I started reading and right away…cue the DUH moment. This book is an Amazon #1 best-seller for a reason. Of course I learned a ton from it! I definitely recommend it if you’re trying to use social media for marketing or building brand awareness.

If you want to know more, you can do two things:

  1. Read the book yourself! You might take away something totally different from it than I did.
  2. Watch this space. I plan on putting a few ideas I have from the book to use on my blog and on  Twitter and LinkedIn, so feel free to follow me!
