Haha, your photoshop skills are great! Very cute picture :). I really like these tips... it sounds like a lot comes down to being human and being interested (in others, your customers, fans, etc). It's an old Dale Carnegie idea but I think it applies really well to social media and business. Being interested (ie: in fans, what they care about, how they feel) is probably the easiest way to be interesting, figure out good ways to reward them and post stuff they'll care about.

Awesome post and important question, Jay! I was just thinking about this the other day too. Given the speed and brevity with which social media moves, I feel it is getting easier and easier to just glance, accept or reject ideas you see mostly based on heuristics and then move on. At the same time, I think getting a broad range of bite-sized pieces of knowledge is great, but largely in the ability of these bits and pieces of info to inspire or intrigue you to learn and think more.

Wow, sweet set of options. I think I'd go with Amber's choice. Though the refrigerator magnet one is pretty cool too :D

Smart thoughts, Jay! Post and man the desk for when the audience is active and listening. Facebook always seems to turn into an online watering hole Sunday nights so wasn't surprised to see how popular a time that was to reach consumers :)

Really interesting post, Jeff! I really like this idea of focusing not just on engagement for the sake of engagement, but rather the momentum of that engagement- how much discussion and action an initial interaction can lead to. And glad to see your book is on Kindle! Look forward to reading it.

Thanks Jay for such an interesting and thought provoking post! I think this issue of how social media is changing the development of relationships is really fascinating and worth thinking about. My personal take is that we still haven't gotten to the point where an online relationship is a replacement for a well-developed in-person one. That said there is some real new power in the ability it has given us to network more easily and hold on to relatively weaker social ties we would otherwise lose (due to time, geography, etc). So while we may at any time really only have those 150 (or however many you believe is possible) "true" and deep connections, we are able to switch them up much faster now (as we change locations, etc) and draw from a greater and more well-maintained pool of them.
