Buy someone a meal in a random act of kindness

How far does a compliment or gesture go
in your
social networks?

Let’s be real.

We’re all hopping around the web “Like”ing all sorts of content. We spend hours daily approaching others for business and social relationships without much time or effort genuinely spent enriching the lives, not just business, of those others.

Your brand is your behavior
as seen thru the eyes of others,
both online and off.

When the hallmark of business is relationships, how you enrich your personal and business prospects can add long-tail value to your online social capital.

Your brand is your behavior as seen thru the eyes of others, both online and off. Random acts of kindness add to your social capital bottom line – and to others’. Think “community volunteering” or “philanthropy”.

Here Are 7 Things You Can Do to Build Your Social Capital:

  • Share your thoughts and professional advice as blog comments.
  • Answer a question on a Q&A forum or professional forum.
    (Linkedin Answers, Yahoo Q&A, Mac Users Forum).
  • Leave digital *hugs* on someone’s misfortunate status update.
  • Write a brief post linking to a well written, informative, or provocative blog post.
  • Retweet a company brand or product citation (#CompanyHashtag) you respect.
  • Buy or offer a stranger a cup of coffee.
  • Pay the toll for the car behind you.

Participation and contribution are the glue in building and maintaining social connections.

Add value by helping another’s product or post — or day, and add to your social capital.

What’s the single most powerful positive word? TED Disussion

–Updated: February 16, 2:40pm PST

“What is the single most powerful positive word
in the English language?”

A lively discussion has lit up on LinkedIn on TED’s discussion group to answer that question.
The community responses are shown in the following tag cloud.

Single most powerful word: TED: Wordle

From Blog to Haiku to 6 Words to Single Word

Reductionism. This seems to be all too appealing for some in their online communication.

First, it was the blog, a shortened form of the news winnowed down to a journaled blurb.Then it was the 140 character tweet which restricted the 160 characters of its antecedent, the cellular text message.

Haiku tweets then added a pleasant literary intentionality to this narrowed universe with their 5-7-5 syllabic 3 line poems. It is same line of reductionism that fuels the popularity of the Six words blogs, stories and subsequent contests. Which only makes sense that this TED Group would (finally) query asking for a single word.

How would you answer?
