The power of social media

Jordan got hurt by being blocked. But it was a great lesson that encouraged him to improve his social media image and become useful for people. Useful, not annoying.

Jordan deleted Simone’s New Year post and all the personal posts with zero likes. Then he updated his status, «I’m creating a project about professional success/fails called #successfails. What topics would be the most interesting to you?» The hashtag wasn’t great, to be honest, but Jordan’s friends loved it because they thought it was ironic.

The next day Jordan updated his status again, «We need to talk about Raindrop. I have just discovered this tool for organising browser bookmarks, and it’s amazing!»

Every day Jordan gave reviews about a tool he liked or shared his opinions on professional topics.

Jordan felt popular. He was ready to share #successfails that his friends mentioned in the comments. Jordan was not afraid to joke about his fails, and the response was amazing. So when he asked, «I’m going to the effective management workshop, who is coming? Let’s meet up there!», 10 people signed up! Jordan finally understood the power of social media.
