My journey into social media began in August of 2008, when I joined Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook. I wrote the first of my 770 blog posts in March, 2009.

It was a steep curve, but I learned most of the basic operating principles in my first two years of practicing these powerful communication tools. Now we have new platforms like Instagram, Snapchat, and Periscope. While it seems these tools we are using to communicate are changing rapidly, here are a few things that were true in 2008 that I think are still true today.
