Great post from Steve Matthews, Law Firm Web Strategy :
If you are using social media to participate and build a reputation, you need to back it up with some substance. And though some may disagree, my take is that substance frequently requires more that 140 characters.
Twitter is not enough!!!
Start by researching and saving online your bookmarks. Then create a blog where you can add your content and reflections.
There are many Types of Blog Posts to battle bloggers block.
Only then, you should start using Twitter for conversations. iAlja posted:
To build a special connection between forum members and strengthen the forum community
When I am explaining a topic to someone in Twitter I always end referring him/her to posts from this blog or my emapey’s Bookmarks on Delicious
While Liz B. Davis knows how to use Delicious for networking, she promoted this great post only via Twitter. I still don’t understand why Liz didn’t add it to her Delicious bookmarks. All members from her Delicious network will miss this great link.
