Three Positive Ways I've Used Social Media

OK~ We all hear about the good, the bad, and the ugly- in regards to Social Media. Here's three positive ways that I have personally experienced Social Media in the past couple months.

  • I was on the hunt for a washing machine. I sent out a few tweets.....Great responses and advice. I found a coupon good at a national retailer- through a link on twitter. I went to make my purchase and the coupon was not honored. I purchased the washing machine, went home, and sent out a tweet. Within 30 minutes, this national company sent me a DM (Direct Message) and wanted my telephone number. They honored my coupon and appreciated my follow up.
  • We are having success growing watermelon in our garden. So, I sent out a few tweets.....Now, I know when the watermelon will be ripe and know that there are many others that have the same question (s) as I do.
  • Through Facebook I have connected with many relatives and the connections have been so good....that several are asking, "When is the next family reunion?"  Wow, who would have thought?
Oh yeah, and one more thing....the people that I have met at the two blogging conferences I have spoken at are some of the most amazing, dedicated, inspiring people that I have ever met!

Well, this whole road of Social Media is a fun one AND I'm glad you are sharing this adventure with me! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. I wouldn't know you without social media!

  2. I love social media, especially when it is used positively. I have started using Four Square and I am hooked now because of the deals I got this weekend checking into places. I also blogged about the benefits of Twitter today!


I always love feedback on my blog!
