Many people get having a mass amount of followers confused. You may have people whom you see go around following tons of people but never really interact with them. One of the main places I see that happen is on twitter. Because like I learned from Gary Vaynerchuk your followers don’t mean shit if you don’t talk with them.
Connecting with others is a main thing I feel that a majority of times we forget to do so. The term social in social media seems to have been forgotten. There are ton’s of people who you can speak with that you will feel as if you and them lived in the same town you would be great friends.
Show people that you care to take the time to speak with them. Because more or less they would love to chat and get to know you. Social networks have allowed me to meet some great people and continue to do so. The thing is to not get lost in the aspect of being seen as a person who doesn’t give a shit about anyone but themselves.
A good example of that is someone who you see that will follow you and then unfollow you a couple days later. The person will be following 100 people with 10,000 followers and do what the first sentence said. People have a desire to be seen as a popular person or a person of importance. When actually they are someone you and me may have never heard of.
So to end this whatever social networks you are on spend time actually connecting with whom you follow. Your network will grow stronger and more trusting. Plus it will make them appreciate you more and vice versa.
