Blogalicious 2010: Social Media New Year Resolutions

Social Media New Year Resolutions

I was reading this article by Jason Bakker of Campus Media Group about 2010 Social Media New Year Resolutions on YPulse and was inspired by this resolution of his in particular:

I will become a power user. Our friend [and Ypulse Youth Advisory Board Member] Libby Issendorf has challenged us to choose one new social network each month and become a power user, if only for 30 days. Make friends, add content, and
experiment with every feature and privacy setting. No making "I don't have time"
excuses: A few hours of setup, one hour-long session per week, and a five-minute
daily check-in are all you need. You'll learn more about Tumblr, Foursquare, or
Farmville than you ever could from a blog post or presentation.

Here are some other interesting posts on the subject:

Sure, the thought of tackling a new social network site every month sounds a little daunting, but imagine the opportunities to connect and explore. I have to admit, I'm intrigued by the notion and 98% up for the challenge...Are you? Do you have any social media resolutions for 2010?


  1. Wow, what a challenge. It sounds so overwhelming but what a great way to connect with people. I'm game if you are????

  2. I'm up for it. The social media realm is ever-changing and I'm not too keen on being left behind.

    One of my main goals is to further position myself as a resource for the lifestyle genre of social networkers.

  3. Wow! This is exciting. I'm up for the challenge. My social media resolution for 2010 is focus on having consistent, well developed content. I made the mistake of adding lots of unnecessary bells and whistles to my first blog. Since I got a redesign, I strive to have excellent, thought provoking, entertaining content that will keep readers coming back.

  4. I think this is a great idea, especially as a way to expand your social media "toolbox" if you freelance and help companies delve into the market, as i plan to do this year. Thanks!

  5. This is in harmony with my goals for 2010. I have learned since going to blogalicious09, and several other networking events that it is one of the keys to my success. Networking puts you and your "brand" out in the public eye and creates such enlightening opportunities. Glad to see that I am in the right direction.

  6. Thanks for sharing this with your readers. Picking a new social platform to dive into each month is a challenge. Breaking it down like this helps make it manageable. I'll be tackling LinkedIN for the Month of January. Maybe I'll see some of you on there? @jasonbakker
