What does it take to be the next social media influencer?
A post shared by The Huffington We Are Social (@thehuffingtonwearesocial) on May 20, 2018 at 10:16am PDTIt’s no secret that millennials have become more open to sharing more of their personal information online, but are they willing to share more of it on social media?
What if the sharing habits of the world’s largest millennial generation changed overnight?
Well, it’s not a stretch to say that the answer is yes, but first, let’s explore what that means for the future of social media.
If you’re the next Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter or YouTube, you may be wondering why you’re sharing more personal information with the world.
As more people use social media, they may be able to tap into a new wave of consumer engagement that can help companies build more successful businesses and grow their business.
And while some people may have more than one social media account, most millennials are still only sharing with friends and family, says Christina Smith, CEO and founder of The Huffington Women, a platform for women in the tech and media industries.
While social media is still king, Smith and other social media experts say it’s the start of a new era of online relationships that will lead to more personal connections, better customer service, and greater engagement.
“This is the beginning of the shift in the age of personal relationships,” Smith says.
“It’s really exciting.”
If you’ve already started sharing more with your friends and loved ones, there’s no reason you can’t share more now that you have a social media presence.
In fact, you could be making your social media experience even better by sharing more on your personal social media accounts.
Here are a few tips to help you start sharing more, especially with your family.
What’s the Right Age to Start Sharing More?
While it’s always important to be honest with your fans, it is also important to keep your audience on your side.
For instance, if you’re already in a relationship, it may be more important for you to keep that relationship going and sharing information.
And if you have children, the right age to start sharing is early to middle school.
So how do you start?
Start by asking friends to check in on you regularly.
Ask them if they’ve shared something with you, and share your latest thoughts and photos on Instagram or Twitter.
And don’t forget to follow the #HAPPYHOUR hashtag on Twitter.
Social media experts agree that it’s easier to share with family members if you make it easy for them to reach out.
“We’ve been hearing from many parents that when they were young, they would send photos and videos to their parents and friends, and then they would get a text message back,” says Amy Hager, cofounder of We Are Change, an online community for parents who have changed their child’s lifestyle and want to share their story.
“Now, they’re not sending them any messages anymore, so they can’t reach out,” she says.
Hager adds that parents can use their social media platforms to reach their kids.
For example, if your kids are in the middle of a math test or they’re planning to start a new class, sharing photos, videos, and even a video could make a big difference.
“When we were young we had to send pictures and videos all the time,” Hager says.
“I’ve seen it change for me personally.
When I started sharing videos and photos, my kids started getting excited.
It was like, wow, I did it!”
Another reason to share frequently is to show that you care about your audience.
“For a lot of people, the idea of sharing is not a way to make money.
They feel like they can take pictures, and they want to show their appreciation and appreciation,” Smith explains.
So start by sharing the news that you want to make it to your fans and letting them know that you’re doing something about it.
“If you have an idea that you think could help someone, share it,” Smith adds.
And don’t limit your audience to your friends, family and colleagues.
“In addition to getting people to stop sending you their likes and comments, you can also show them that you are sharing the information that you know,” says Hager.
And, of course, share the news with your closest influencers and fans.
How to Create a Social Media PresenceFor many millennials, social media was a new hobby, but it was a way for them find a community to connect with others.
“You can create a personal social circle around you that is open to everyone,” Smith said.
“And if you want your audience or followers to be your friends or fans, you’ll want to have a way of getting them in touch with you.”
As Smith explains, it can be tough to find a place for everyone to connect, so create a space that’s open to
