You’re Not Doing Social Media Right
So you’ve got a presence on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and maybe even Pinterest and InstaGram. You post and you “Like”. You “Follow” and ReTweet and you probably even add some #hashtags, from time to time. I’m the one who has to tell you that you’re not doing any of this, the right way.

Many times we make our first impression, not in person, but online. It’s a static image that doesn’t have the charisma of your animated self. We need to maximize the impression that this image makes. Does it put you in your best light while still looking like you? Does it give clues to your personality? When they look into your photographed eyes, do they see a sample of your soul?
If we work together, the answer to those questions will will be YES. Are you read to Picture Yourself?
Social Media client, eCMS, gets Klout!
If you’ve been keeping track of me these past few months, you know that I’ve been going to Portland, Oregon from time to time. Sure it’s been a lot of fun, but I’ve been going there to work with eComMerchantSolutions. It appears that the social media work that we have been doing is starting to work.
The Unofficial Facebook Variants
Facebook has become a staple in our lives. It is the social network that nearly everyone is on. It is so large that not being on Facebook is akin to being anti-social. Of course, with that many users, the site attracts a variety of personalities and we’re seeing some unofficial variants of The Zuck’s lil dormroom project.
I’ve had chats with friends about these things, so I know that I’m not the only one who has these thoughts. I like to think I possess an abundance of brilliance that makes me unique, but apparently that’s not the case. Oh yeah, we were talking about the Facebook variant that have morphed their way into the the network and left unchallenged, will significantly alter our online existence and taint our social experience.
What are these “variants”? Today, I’m looking at two and ranting about one. Yes, there will be a JD rant!

Why I Hate Instagram
As I sit to write this blog entry, the thought strikes me that it is odd to have such an emotional response to a service, especially one that I don’t even use. Needless to say, since I’m still typing, that those thoughts were quickly squashed in my brain. To the many that rely on InstaGrime to display your meals in what you think is a quirky, artsy way, I might have to spend a bit more time explaining. Let’s see if I can filter through the nonsense and get this issue squared away. See what I did there?

DalyDose of…Who Needs Pics?
I love taking pictures of people. In this digital age there are so many opportunities for people to make an impression with a great image. Certainly, in entertainment actors have always had a need for professional photography, but now we are seeing that need translate to people in all walks of life.
With so much interaction happening online, we don’t always get to look people in the eyes and shake hands. We don’t get that chance to display, not only our physical looks, but our intangible characteristics. Our profiles can’t accurately convey things like charisma and confidence. A great picture or set of pictures can help.
Keep reading to see how YOU can probably use new, professional photography services.
