  • 3 Tips for Using Social Media for Professional Networking

    Obviously social media is here to stay. As Kenny Loggins told us all in 1982, “Don’t fight it!” This new tool can be a blessing or a curse, all depending on how you choose to use it. Just like Backstage, Facebook and Twitter, to mention a few, can absolutely be tools in your bag of tricks to help make you better, faster, and stronger. OK, so maybe you won’t magically become the Six Million Dollar Man, but you can become a more educated actor.
    There are a few key items when it comes to making a good and professional first impression using social media. 
    1. Profile pictures. Let’s start by being honest. We are a society that judges. We all love to preach, “You can’t judge a book by its cover,” but we all do just that every day. How many times have you received a Facebook friend request and decided in a millisecond if you are going to actually consider this request or not? Why? Firstly, because you’ve looked at their profile picture. This picture will make you want to look further into the request or delete it. You may not want to admit that, but I’d bet it’s true.
