June 2010 seems like an eternity ago when I took initiative and created a LinkedIn Group to share strategies and tips in social media marketing. I invited friends and colleagues in the industry to join and participate. They did that, and they told their friends.
Over time, people none of us knew searched LinkedIn for keywords about social media marketing and also joined the group. They began posting valuable content.
There are over 4,500 LinkedIn members today. This is very humbling to me and I thank everyone.
Fast forward to August 2012 and I realized there was no Facebook Group to share strategies and tips on social media marketing.
My action to create a Facebook counterpart to the LinkedIn group was immediate. I pimped its existence to my Facebook friends and colleagues and also shared a link to the pre-existing LI members. People joined. Today there are over 120 Facebook members.
Regardless of your preferred networking site, there is a group for you to join to learn and share strategies and tips in social media marketing.
