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:
- Give, like, creative and real compliments.
- Don’t let other people take up all your time or space or eat all your steak.
- 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.
