Call it a Face-cation or a Face-break… whatever you want to call it, I’m taking it. And unlike a lot of the dramatic Debbie’s out there, I’m not making a grand announcement via a status update on my personal account. No “I’m deleting my Facebook account”. Nothing. I’m just stepping back and shutting the doors. This post is the biggest proclamation that I’ll make. And it’s not Facebook that I’m sick and tired of, it’s the people of Facebook.
A post entitled, “A Note to Parents: How to be a “cool” parent on Facebook (as written by a kid on Facebook),” was brought to my attention a while ago and I loved it!

Once you have devoted significant time to learn the basic ins and outs of how the most popular channels workmore
Creating Relevant Content Last week, we discussed the relationship “R” of the 3 R’s of social media: why they’re important and why that, above all else, needs to be the #1 focus in your social media efforts.

Once you’ve developed a relationship with your social media audience, how do you keep up that relationshipmore
When I originally wrote this series, I called it the 3 R’s of Social Media but I realized this week that I am writing a LOT of ‘number’ posts so I changed the title.
