If you are active on Social Media Sites, you have no doubt left someone a comment using one of these short phrases or symbols. Congratulations, you are one of many who have taken just a little time to share an acknowledgement with someone.
Write a Comment and Share!
Take the time and really show someone that you care. Write a brief comment about what stood out in the person’s post or shared article. In addition, share your comment with others, this shows that you really find the information valuable enough to share with your own friends and followers.
Commenting at an Innovative Level
Feature someone’s post or ideas in a future post of yours. On Linkedin, write a formal recommendation. These type of recommendations speak volumes and often the person reciprocates the favor. A definite win-win for you. Send a personal word of thanks using email, mail, direct message-twitter. I really like the “mail” feature because few people actually take the time and write a personal note.
Social commenting can really help you take your connection to a new level. People like to feel appreciated and the more personal the comment, the better. In a world where engagement is encouraged more and more on social media platforms, make it a point to try and stay a step ahead of the crowd and show that you are different from other people.
