The Secret to Social Media

posted by DL Byron on May 11, 2008

When I was in University as the Internets came online, a professor told me that the Victorians were equally impressed with themselves over mail. They wrote “missives” daily, sometimes five times a day … the post office would come as many times as you needed and there was a whole network of mail. And they all wrote about how marvelous it was.

Same thing, different day with blogging, social media, and Twitter … we’re always amazed by ourselves and the novel ways we develop to communicate, when really only the methods change.

In the rush to new platforms, to figuring it out, to making money at it, the secret to social media is: do epic shit.

As blogger Brendon Connelly said, “yeah, you gotta pursue your vision—stuff you love, and rock it hard.”
