This is a simple book to read but heavy with understanding. Even if you aren't a Baby Boomer I would recommend this publication from one of the preeminent woman in the Social Media space. Can't wait to see the online course which I hear is coming soon

5.0 out of 5 stars A great guide for the professional contemplating social media platforms for greater personal branding 4 March 2016
By Joe & Sharon Hopkins - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Sandra D’Souza (2015) makes a compelling argument that professionals and businesses should use social media as a platform to gain positive exposure to greater branding of the individual, a product, or service. Her guide to understanding the customer, establishing key goals and objectives, developing and executing a strategy, through the design process will assist to identify proper platforms that will best suit the individual or business needs. She avoids the technical jargon and provides a straight-forward approach to making social media work for the individual, small business, or large enterprise.

As a professional 55 year old male working through a doctoral program, I have argued that social media requires large amounts of time with little benefit. D’Souza (2015) provides ample evidence that social media aids the professional in branding themselves and improving their public profile while enhancing a learning platform. She provides a five step frame work linked to “Six Golden Rules” to assist the novice as well as the experienced social media user to select the proper platforms and then set out to be a productive user.

The professional or small business owner intrigued by the idea of social media but unsure of the benefit, or concerned with time and resource demands, or uneasy with potential negative publicity will find Social Media for Baby Boomers (2015) easy to read and abundant with valuable insight.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great guide for seasoned professionals who want to stay "on trend", but were too scared to ask how. 7 December 2015
By MLS, Perth, Australia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Don't be fooled by the "baby boomer" in the title! This practical guide is for everyone who wants to enhance their personal brand. It is a no-nonsense approach that takes readers through overcoming any misgivings about social media, makes a sensible case for building your authentic social media voice that connects with and contributes to your sphere of influence, and provides pragmatic guidance on how to schedule this into your week and your strategy. Great advice to ensure that you don't show up to the party after it's all over.
4.0 out of 5 stars Ask people what they think and they will be only too glad to tell you 14 July 2016
By Helen Ladewig - Published on Amazon.com
Most practical piece of advice I took from this is how to generate a conversation. Ask people what they think and they will be only too glad to tell you. Don't take it personally if the comment is negative - it's still a comment, which means that people are reading your posts and engaging with the ideas presented there. Always remember to make some questioning comment when posting so that you can generate thoughts for people to add to the conversation. A great little social media bible. Well done, Sandra!
