Napoleon Dynamite’s Guide to Social Networking


By web gangsta | Published:

Seth Simonds has compiled the NAPOLEON DYNAMITE GUIDE TO SOCIAL NETWORKING, because let’s face it — anyone who is a new user to Facebook, MySpace, bulletin board discussion groups, business networking events, speed dating, or any other forced social intermingling activity really needs a hand to break through the pre-established cliques and get away from being that awkward wallflower to become a true contributer to the situation.

And who knows, maybe you’ll meet someone and get a date out of it. 

The first three rules are:

  1. Give, like, creative and real compliments.
  2. Don’t let other people take up all your time or space or eat all your steak.
  3. Put your connections to work for others so they get sweet stuff, too.

Take a look at Seth’s article for the other two examples and how Napoleon Dynamite applies to the points he is making.

The whole piece should really be subtitled, “EVERYTHING I KNOW ABOUT HOW TO SUCCEED IN SOCIAL NETWORKING I LEARNED FROM NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE”. 

Don’t know if Seth will take my suggestion though.  Maybe if I offer to draw him a liger, he’ll consider it.
