Get Schnooked with Deborah!
Over the past year, social networking has taken a front row seat in my career which has been something I did not anticipate. Although I was familiar with tools such as Facebook and Twitter, I hadn’t viewed social networking as being an extremely useful tool in my profession.
Checking out Twitter
I started a twitter account but then just let it sit idle for about six months. I was beginning to think Twitter had no value at all when I began stumbling on the tweets of others who tweeted information focusing on ideas for parents and teachers of young children. That is when the light went on. I realized that with 20 years of experience in early childhood education plus a master’s degree, I do have something to share and I could share it through social networking.
The tools that have made a difference
I now have two blogs, one website, a Twitter account, and a Facebook account all focused on sharing ideas and information to those interested in teaching or caring for young children. In just over 6 months, I have gained over 1200 followers on twitter and over 2000 facebook friends and fans all interested in the field of early childhood education. I have made new friends and colleagues through social networking that I would have never had the chance to meet any other way.
SocialWants to the rescue
Learning to manage each of those sites has come with a few technical glitches along the way and I am completely reliant on online sources for learning how to use all social networking tools. This is how I discovered the awesome support of Kelsi Guidry at SocialWants.
I noticed several people using a really cool application on their FB fan page but could not, after hours of trying, figure out how to get the application to work for me. I searched for solutions everywhere and then came across a video posted by Kelsi for SocialWants. The video walked me through the application set-up step-by-step and presto! My problem was solved. Since that time, whenever I run into a social networking issue, I check to see if SocialWants has an answer.
Since connecting with Kelsi SocialWants, I have also been given links to tutorials on HTML code as well – this has been a huge help!
