Content Insider #331 - Alone Together By Miles Weston It's almost impossible to imagine going anywhere without your arsenal of devices of being away from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, whatever for a full day. After all without all of those things how can you share with, communicate with people? Well you could sit across from them at a table or next to them on the couch, look them in the eyes and talk. Of course not because you might miss "talking" with someone else. Or put them all aside and commune with nature, the world around you.

Content Insider #326 - Experts Fade By Miles Weston Why is it when people are warned not to go into the light they run to the light? It's a lot like that with social media experts - the people who know everything about how to get you followers, likes, Twits. The more you've got the more you want, the more you need because it's what enables you to engage with all those people. Of course most of them expect you to follow them, like them, Tweet/Retweet their stuff as well. And they are all experts!

The social media expert may have bigger numbers but you've got people you know, deal with and have credibility with. Tell that to your resident expert and watch him/her fade into the light. ...Read More »
