Close PR Encounters of the Facebook Kind

Facebook 🙂

I love Facebook, you love Facebook, we all love Facebook. So let’s all jump for joy…or not.

“I am, I said:” Be smart – think about what type of Facebook user you are and your own personal brand.

Yes, believe it or not, you have a personal brand. It is how you look, what people think about you, why they think the things they think etc.,

I read about this concept in The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon.

The Energy Bus is a very short and quick read, written in a narrative style. A fast reader could whip through it in an hour — two at the most.

In a nut shell, the story is about an energy vampire, who is a person who sucks the motivation out of another person. They are joy-killers and inspire depression for all those they touch.
