What is effective communication via social media, and specifically, what is the right level to engage others without driving them away? How frequently should one send out updates, post new messages, or update their status / profile? For many, these answers may depend on what the goals are – growing a network for business building, sharing information / industry updates / late-breaking news, or building a wide network to help with a job search.


No matter what the intent for using a social media site, sharing something of value or “free” will serve one well and begin building a positive brand for an individual. Blasting out numerous updates too often, or trying to “sell” someone, may label you as a self-promoter who shares “anything and everything”, and even run the risk of being viewed as a “spammer”. You want to “engage”, not “enrage” followers.
