The value of silence in social media
Share

silence

A few days ago, someone asked me how often I left comments on other people’s blogs. My answer was simple: “When I feel that I could add something of value to the conversation.”

Apparently, I am not the only one to think that way:

“We aren’t experts on everything. Even within the social business sphere we each have specialties, niche concentrations and platform-specific knowledge. We can’t keep up with every change that is reported in social business news. Sometimes this causes some social solutions providers to take on the persona of Jack of all trades, master of none. Giving us the idea that we should act or comment at will. This is something we should fight against.” – Mallie Hart
