I get lots of questions about social media. They range from the time commitment, to how to "do it," to what's in it for me. These are all fair questions, but they really miss the point of what social media is all about. Going social is not a "me" thing...it's a "we" thing. It's about giving first and taking second. It's about supporting others and worrying abut yourself later.
It's called social media, not how-can-I-get-something-on-the-cheap-media.
