How a Rookie Learned the Power of the Social Networking

Throughout my life I’ve been a rookie. I’ve been a rookie high school student, football player, college student and a rookie at marriage. Each time there was an uncanny excitement about all of the new things that I expected to learn. It seems that there is always someone there to give me advice about how to navigate the ropes. I’ve found that keeping an open mind to new opportunities has been a key to my success.

So now I find myself once again a rookie at social networking. What a fun journey it has already been. I have found people on social networks who are jumping in to help someone who is new. It appears that thousands of people are joining these networks everyday. I admire all of the people who are sharing their wisdom to save people time, money and energy. The social networks are full of articles, blogs, business information, individual profiles and areas of special interest.

I joined Twitter and I have received immediate responses to questions that I have been pondering for months. The social networks give you an opportunity to explore what others around the world are doing and to reconnect with friends from high school and college. This week I reconnected with students that I’ve taught over the last twenty-five years on I have been so inspired that I started my own education social network at

I have my own business and joining has been an invaluable resource. When you are a rookie you look for every opportunity to get out on the field to play. Therefore, I recently started my own radio social network at It appears that people are looking for an opportunity to here from experts any time of the day. People who are in your network also get special information directly because they are your members. If you are looking for exciting news and hear what your peers are thinking than you cannot continue to wait on the sideline.

You have the flexibility to determine who you want to participate as a member of your social network web page. People all over the world will express a desire to communicate with individuals in the social network. Sometimes people offer the right encouragement at the moment that you need it. I have noticed an overwhelming amount of words of congratulations that are passed from individual to individual.

I recommend that you choose a social network that meets your specific needs. There are social networks for individuals who are interested in reconnecting, business, marketing, and personal videos. People are involved in social networks because they have decided that it will provide answers to a particular challenge they are facing. For example networks like offer a personal and business networking opportunity. I have asked questions and received an immediate response.

I’m a rookie all over again and I’m enjoying the ride. Since I am a rookie I expect to learn something new every day. Just like exercising to become fit you must participate in your social networking sites every day to establish your footing. There is a bottomless amount of information to comprehend. The social networks have inspired the next internet revolution. Get on board the social network train and enjoy the ride.
