The most flawed stories are those that we think we know best and are often repeated by those around us – and so we rarely investigate further. Ask anyone in business to name the most important social network for salespeople, and you will almost always hear: LinkedIn, of course. If you’re surprised, we are too.

If you’re looking to promote your business or brand through social media (and who isn’t?!), then Twitter is the place to be in 2015. Generally speaking I’ve seen Facebook as the best fit for most businesses over the last few years, but Twitter is taking huge steps to catch or even surpass Facebook.

Social media sites such as Twitter are always walking that fine line between allowing free speech and protecting their users against abusive tweets. As you can imagine, with the number of users Twitter has on their site on a daily basis in combination with the number of tweets sent, protecting users’ rights without stepping on the rights of someone else is a challenge.

The first thing you do after publishing a blog post is to share it with your social network. This typically implies Facebook, Twitter, Email, LinkedIn, reddit, etc. Studies have found that Facebook users engage quite actively during Thursdays and Fridays. On Twitter, the engagement rates are seen to be higher during the weekends. The time of the day your post reaches the community matters too. News and magazine updates (including blog posts) are more likely to be opened during the lunch hours.

There will be others that truly want to help others and there will be people that just want to sound important and gain a million followers. I surround myself with people in the same way online as I do offline. What makes me loves Twitter Chats as much as I do?

Shockingly enough, it might not be. You’ll likely lose respect and loyalty from a client if their questions and complaints aren’t dealt with in a short window of time.

You’ve heard it said that images and videos are the golden ticket on social media. Well, I must say I disagree. Good images are the ticket. That one little modifier—good—qualifies the whole idea.

But take heart, finding good images and shooting good video are both within your grasp. Let’s take a look at 11 easy fixes to help you avoid the ho-hum of bad images on social media.

Last week, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban caused quite a stir on Twitter by suggesting that people, if they could afford it, get quarterly bloodwork to establish a baseline of their own health. A big failing of medicine, he wrote, is that "we wait till we are sick to have our blood tested and compare the results to 'comparable demographics.' " While that idea may seem logical, medical researchers have long cautioned that more testing is not a recipe for better health. I and others, including many doctors, countered Cuban's views, saying they could produce dangerous outcomes for patients.
