I See You… Making Comments on Facebook, Twitter and Blogs

I See You - Commenting on Facebook and Blogs

Anyone who has been following me on Facebook or Twitter for any time knows that I was borderline obsessed with the movie Avatar when it first came out in the theaters. It really touched me.

This morning I had an Avatar moment. Someone I admire commented on one of my Facebook posts for the first time and it made my day. In the movie, the characters have a greeting that translates to “I see you,” and I felt seen this morning.

The internet today is full of opportunities for you to acknowledge people, and full of opportunities for you to be “seen.” Not just by potential customers, or by search engines, but by people who listen, people who care, and people who inspire you. Begin by being that person yourself and “see” someone online.

Commenting on people’s Facebook posts, tweets, and blog posts is a gesture that lets them know that you read their post, have an opinion about it, got a chuckle out of it, or were inspired by it. Most of us read posts and make comments in our minds as we read them, but then click away to something else without leaving a comment. Why not let the person know you see them. Put your thoughts “on paper” and leave a comment. You might just make someone’s day!

PS: In terms of your online presence, doing this helps you as well!

Until next time,

Karen

    It is encouraging to have comments on what you have written. When people comment it helps you to know what they are interested in and you learn ways to serve them better.
