Go together Make a Difference

Go together Make a Difference

A friend of mine says she needs to unplug because “social media is a machine” and. On “YouTube to Twitter… to my blogs and vlogs… rotation fb and discussion” she started receiving death threats and angry comments after which she blocked comments. She said all posts were beneficial and that she had “many followers”. I know that her posts (those that I saw/read) were interesting, but it was just about her.

What I want to know is what is the purpose of social media if not to engage? How does one effectively use Social Media to engage people? How does one find the people of their tribe? In my case the passionate people who want to make a difference in their community.

I’m tired of reading articles and being marketed on how to gain thousands of followers. I’m not looking for followers. I’m looking for equals. I’m looking for People who not only read/watch what I may post but who also link thoughts, brainstorm and truly connect.

The internet has made the world much smaller by connecting people who probably would never have met otherwise, but how many people seem to use the internet is like a tv – very one sided like the news anchor telling a story. The audience is passively just listening.

How do people like #EllenDegeneres get so many of her people to talk with her? #Ellen is one of my favorite people. Her followers engage with her and are recognized sometimes to the point that she calls them or invites them to her show. I would love a relationship with my tribe.

How do I find passionate people who want to make a difference in their community and who would like to join me in leading others to become leaders?

My son swam in Winter Champs. I am VERY proud of my son and his achievements.

And Greater Miami Youth Symphony asked me to help with their fundraising initiative! I am honored that this 56 year old non-profit which has benefited my son’s life would ask me to assist them. Background, GMYS teaches South Florida children music. It is very affordable (less than $1 a day),  instruments are usually loaned out to kids at no cost, and the kids’ self esteem soar! Sadly we rely on grants from the government and may be losing a big chunk of funding, hence a push in a new direction.

Thanksgiving weekend is The BIGGEST shopping weekend for the United States. We have off the wall savings. Would you like to help GMYS while earning cash back shopping online?

It’s easy. Just register and download Shop Buddy on all your computers – this way you NEVER miss a chance to earn cash back and GMYS receives royalties.

Best Wishes with your Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals!
