Social Media: A Place for Gratitude

by Shannon Milholland, Social Media Director

"I was wr-r-r-r-r-r," the Fonz would stammer. Somehow words like wrong and sorry just didn't fit his cool persona. Decades later, I bet we could add, "Thank you" to the list of things too difficult or inconvenient for the coolest among us to utter.

Avoiding the word thanks, however, is a big mistake in social media. A grateful heart returns favors, touts another's success and remembers to say, "Th-th-th-th-th-thank you." When your online attitude becomes gratitude, you will multiply your opportunities which require a thank you.

So before you rush off to buy 10 Blue Ray Disc players or 14 Barbie dolls, join every turkey not eaten yesterday and say thanks to someone online. That move will make you even cooler than Arthur Fonzarelli.
