Smarter #SocialMedia Tips

I have always enjoyed reading Janet Cho's #SocialMedia Tips articles, so I was honored when she contacted me to be featured in her column.

On September 18, 2015, at around 8:00 a.m., I noticed that I had been mentioned on Twitter 40 times -- just a bit (sarcasm intended) above my normal interaction for an early Friday morning. A half-hour later, I was mentioned another 20 times on Twitter. I found that at 7:15 a.m., @CLEBusiness had shared this tweet:

In the article, I recommended following the many local arts/theatre/parks/museum organizations, and supporters of cultural events such as University Circle, Inc. (@InTheCircle), The Cleveland Foundation (@CleveFoundation), and Cuyahoga Arts & Culture (@CuyArtsC). By following these organizations, you can learn about great Cleveland area activities. If you read my blog posts, or see the Cleveland events I mention on Twitter as @sos_jr, you will see that my family benefits directly by following these organizations.

As another follow-up to the article, I also want to mention here that if you know of a Cleveland or Akron area nonprofit that would benefit from the type of free tech projects support provided by Cleveland GiveCamp (@CleGiveCamp), please direct them to the website. You can learn more about Cleveland GiveCamp in my Cleveland GiveCamp blog posts.

Thank You, Janet!

I want to, of course, thank Janet Cho for not only featuring me in her article, but more importantly, for sharing and engaging with me on Twitter.

In preparing this blog post, I did a Twitter search of all the times Janet retweeted or interacted with me on Twitter. In an earlier draft of this blog post, I had planned to include all the tweets. However, I decided that embedding 156 tweets was a bit much.

I recommend following Janet Cho on Twitter at @JanetCho, since in addition to her articles, she shares other interesting resources.

Since the focus of my blog and @sos_jr twitter feed has always been promoting tech meetings, social media events, and some entrepreneur groups, I thought it would be appropriate to share Janet Cho's #SocialMedia Tips articles:
