So below will explain the many social platforms I manage my strategy, content, connecting, and execution of my social strategy for professional and personal growth. Being across so many different communities and technologies it keeps fueling my curiosity, connecting, and improving passions! Below is not all the places I have a profile, but the main ones I use on a hourly, daily, weekly, monthly basis, yes each platform has it own engagement cycle.
You usually can tell which one I am using on that hourly cycle! Couple main points I suggest for managing, engaging and networking is to always remember each social platform will have it’s own ways of communicating and engaging, always pick a home-base to send all new profiles to, for me this is my blog at http://keithprivette.com, and always be yourself. Being yourself will be the most important and relevant strategy to deploy when managing your social platforms and properties.
The pulling tin blog is a journaling strategy for our family travels with our RV. This site will have reviews of campgrounds, pictures of our trips, and general information about living the RV lifestyle. With living a RV lifestyle comes with many many opportunities to speak about all things to do with the outdoors. The Privette family loves being outdoors so many other things may show up about this.
Personal\Professional\Non-Profit: This platform is the lowest barrier social platform management. This platform allows you to follow just about anyone that has an account. This account allows me to discover people, connect people, connect businesses, connect ideas, have fun, express my personality, post pictures, post links to information, promote others blog posts, promote others charity initiatives, promote people period, communicate with brands, promote business initiatives, twitter chats (see twitter chats below), and cross post to facebook and linkedin. Only business stuff goes over to linkedin and only information that makes sense to the facebook community goes over.

Personal\Professional\Non-Profit: The second lowest barrier for connecting in my social platform management. This platform has many cross over people and businesses from all my platforms. I usually try establish a connection before sending out requests to be friends. I manage the people that want to friend me also. Post pictures, join fan pages, cross post with some twitter information, hooked my foursquare, posterous, gowalla accounts to faceboook. I also help manage the strategy and execution of the Free Arts Minnesota fan page.
This is a comment tracking system for curating all the comments you leave on people’s blogs. Now not all blogs have this application installed on their blog. If they do I highly encourage using this. It makes tracking your engagement on other people’s blogs trackable by you and them. This application will also post your comments to twitter and facebook. This displays your engagement publicly to strengthen your relationships with other people that blog and share their ideas. Promoting others builds your social currency and networking.
