Every year people make New Year’s resolutions to lose weight, cook more, start working out, go to church and so on, but have you thought about making a New Year’s resolution based off of Social? A social resolution could mean a lot of different things: trying to grow your Twitter following, dedicating time to produce better quality pictures before uploading online or even start using a new social platform. eMarketer calls 2014 the year of “social acceptance” because more marketers are committing budgets to paid social media advertising in the form of blogger outreach and more.
Some of our employees have come up with their own social resolutions for 2014; maybe some of these will help you come up with your own!
Less quantity, More quality – Planning to prune my platforms and lists of people I follow to make the content I consume more relevant to my needs. – Brad Lawless
I want to continue using social media to help explore and learn while using it to express my own opinions. I also want to focus on finding what my personal brand would be, and build something that is a representation of me! – Lisa Pruniski
Stay involved more with social media by networking and engaging with followers and friends. I want to be a curator of relationships, not an observer. – Susie Dagastino
I want to continue to expand my voice on all platforms in more ways than just expressing personal feelings and ideas. I want to share things that interest me along with things that are important in the social, tech and digital world. I also want to continue to find better ways to utilize existing platforms as well as try any new social media platforms that come about. – Brett Sosnik
My resolution is to purge my accounts of connections I no longer truly interact with, whether in real life or only on social. I want refined content streams in my networks. – Spencer Sonaty
I want to Focus on the visual platforms; Instagram and Pinterest as my main social tools and syndicate to Facebook and Twitter, work on my photography by making sure every photo tells a piece of a story and to focus on quality vs. quantity when sharing socially. – Courtney Velasquez
I’ve grown up hearing that it takes 21 days to form a habit, start today and in three weeks your resolution could become a reality!
