Reprint from Social Net Effect News:

People are freaking amazing! I love to be around them. Whenever I can manage my schedule to attend an event, I do so. Ken McArthur is putting on another JV Alert Live in Denver this month, and if I can make it happen, I am going to be there (right now, it looks like I may have to miss it, but I have not given up). But when I am away from events, I still need interaction with Millionaires (or at least 6 figuraires) to keep me on my upward and onward path.

You see, your connections are crucial when you are growing. When you spend a lot of time around people who have high values, you tend to pick those up. When you spend a lot of time with people whose values are well below yours, you tend to give up some of yours. So when you look at your circumstances, sometimes a change of scenery is in order if you find yourself being the top earner in your social club.

When you meet people that you can look up to, make sure you follow them on Facebook, Google+, Twitter and LinkedIn… this allows you to hear from and connect with the people who are most likely to influence you for the better. Interaction in this area is important, because the values and principals that will help you grow are not just absorbed by osmosis… you have to take an active role in the process.

Let me explain what the original Social Net Effect meant.

You post to your blog. If you only post to your blog and nothing else, you will get some traffic. Nothing huge, but still, you get a few readers. If any of those readers share your post (if you make it easier for them, like adding like buttons on your blog that helps) with their social media followers, you will get more traffic. Social networks are like huge webs (or nets) where the strands crisscross each other from one social network to another. I may follow you on Twitter and Facebook, and you may follow some of my Twitter friends on LinkedIn and Google+. As you branch out on multiple networks, and share your posts when you write them, the likelihood of someone new running across your blog increases exponentially. A friend of a friend will recommend your post to their friends and suddenly you have readers from people you have never met.

Influence is very much the same. As you become friends with people you want to be influenced by, you also become influenced by those people that they are wanting to be influenced by. If I am connected to Ken McArthur on all my social networks, I will get the benefit of all the people he is also influenced by, like Tony Robbins. The benefits of interacting with the great people in your networks cannot be measured in income alone. Your time management, your work ethic and your reading habits will be influenced, simply because of the recommendations of others that you may look up to!

So the Social Net Effect has a much bigger impact than I originally envisioned. I am influenced daily by the people I see on Facebook and Google+ (the main networks I check daily) and hopefully, I am influencing the people who see my posts. Which brings me to another thought.

What you post on the social networks is going to impact someone. If you post crap, you are feeding crap to someone who may not be able to handle it. I know that when I talk about beer (a topic I talk about, even though I may drink a twelve pack all year), I may be influencing a recovering alcoholic to jump off the wagon. That is something I would not want to do, so I would have to temper my posts with that in mind. But, like I said, people don’t always think before they post. Wherein lies the problem.

stockvault rusty fence131036 thumb Social Net Effect RevisitedI see people spewing garbage on Facebook and wonder how many people are being brought down to that level. Luckily we have control over what we see on Facebook. We can block offensive people, we can reduce the amount of posts from people we don’t want to be influenced by and we can choose our friends more carefully. Just like when we are hanging out with our friends at home, we don’t always make the best choices of who our friends are, and we have to work a little harder to overcome the negative influences of those people by finding more positively influential people to be around the rest of the time. The Social Net Effect can be both a great tool to help you grow and a trap to hold you back, it is all in how you use it!
