If you’re new to Get Savvy with Social then this post is for you! Social media savvy. What does it mean and how can it help you?
I created this blog to teach people how to use digital tools and technology to better enhance their lives. You’ll also learn tips on how to create awesome multimedia content – from writing to photography to shooting and editing video.
The whole point of being socially savvy is to get you ‘in the know’ when it comes to the ever-changing world of digital. A lot of people may think social savvy refers just to social media savvy – or the practice of being a social media pro – but this blog covers everything digital, not just social media.
Here are some pointers on how you can best use this blog to make your life easier, from everyday habits to technical skills!
- Be open-minded – We are all resistant to change, but once you embrace it your knowledge will flourish. Technology and digital stuff changes faster than most things which is why being open-minded to what’s new is key.
- Practice patience with yourself – I have had some of my biggest meltdowns (or extremely frustrating moments in life) with my computer or phone. This stuff can be difficult, but practicing patience will get you much farther. Keep calm and carry on.
- Set aside the extra time – Know that you won’t learn everything overnight. The more time you spend reading, watching and learning then the better your skills will develop.
Practice those three tips and you will be making progress before you know it! It’s time to get social (media) savvy!
