“Once you can understand where the conversation is, who leads, the type of voices and the best place for you to add your voice, you can then start becoming a more active participant.” – Mitch Joel, president of Twist Image
It seems that there are a growing number of places to add your two cents - twitter, facebook, linkedin discussions, blog posts and comments, youtube. But where should you add your voice?
Most of you know by now that my preference is twitter. I feel connected to a larger conversation that is going on around me . . . kinda like a cocktail party, where you can meet and mingle with people you do and don't know.
I love the fact that I get to meet and learn from people on a global scale. Breaking news comes from friends who are there, I learn tips and tricks on how to be a better designer, I even have some great conversations about food, travel and where the best vacation spots are or the latest design trends.
With such a vast network of teachers, friends and mentors on twitter, I started to connect with them even more personally via Facebook and Linkedin and learned a very valuable lesson in where to add my voice and where to listen and learn.
