Your Face Book Photo Stream Has You With Your Girl Friends, Half Lit, Drinks Hoisted High In Party Mode.

Your friends, family, colleagues see the one after another social media platform images you post on girl friends from college days when they reunite for every party reunion weekend.

There seems to be a young girl college theme going on with a hint of flirting with the audience with some not always family rated images.

As you study your profile, 80% of the images are smiles with a camera the grinner holds high to capture themself.

 

But you are not in the college 4 year, 8 year, whatever length bubble any more right?

What you load in to the starting gates of your social media platform sites determines how you are going to do in the "house horse race".

Social media marketing has turned everything upside down.

The herd to Madison Avenue for marketing messages, advertising propaganda has done a 180 degree turn.

You, I, the on line Internet eyeballs and eardrums want to hear from each other. Without the spin, canned laugh track hoopla corn ball manipulation.

You are lucky to have a job in today's economy. Maybe some sorting out the photo carousel that rotates day and night on your Facebook, LinkedIn and other social media sites is in order to keep that job.

Replacing the self portrait narcissistic "me me me" mirror on the wall images with actual ones that pertain to your profession could be due.

You're not Miss Piggy, no relation right?

Family gatherings are great to circulate, throw up on the overhead projection Power Point. The dog, cat, hamster, snake, whatever exotic pet you think the world of, that are like your "kids" is fine to post. But unless you are planning to work for a modeling agency, or launching a career starting with a search of screen tests locations in Hollywood first, ease up on the self promotion.

Images of your town, where you live and what is so special about it. Work related photos, settings with you rubbing shoulders with other industry leaders at a state convention are super. Just not the hospitality suite after the long day of classes. You know the ones.

Noisy, crowded, boisterous, party maneuvers that continued in to the wee hours of the night.

That are not going to help your image as a business professional. Rather promote you as the life of the party, one wild and crazy party animal kinda guy or gal. When you are on the sauce, on a roll and an audience, camera is introduced to step up the performance.

Swimsuit images with far too little material. That don't cover enough. Go way way beyond keeping it just interesting. When you work in the serious business of listing, selling real estate they mix badly like oil and water.

Have you taken a gander lately at the one by one images you have posted in your profile on any social media sites?

Time to weed and feed in some new ones? Or like the porridge Goldy Locks finally settles in on after some whining, the collection is "just right". Social media images that  don't help your real estate marketing effort, images can lodge a painful bullet in each of your feet. Images that are "hot hot hot" might be better left in the dark of your underwear drawer.

The Shift In Social Media Marketing You Do, Big Business Does Video.

I keep my fb page fun, upbeat and positive.  Tossing in work events and information a couple times a week. I'm ready to delete my work FB page.

John ... Maybe someone dating with images for those sights just mixed them in to the Facebook, LinkedIn or by mistake. You do have control on what you want others to see.

Andrew, I do like to show my personal side, but am very careful when pictures are taken of me. I have no interest in tipping the bottle towards the camera. I do not have control over what others post. This is good stuff. Especially liked the video on social media marketing. Good stuff.
