Be a Social Superhero [Solve our life’s puzzles together]
Today I have been at Social Media Club and a TweetUp in Gothenburg. Then I finished of by seeing Iron Man 3 with my best friend Tom.
The Social Media Club in Gothenburg is driven by @MikuMaria and it’s a fantastic way to meet & greet social people and discuss interesting topics during the lunch hour. Everyone is exceedingly open and friendly just like at the Unconferences WebCoast and SSWC.
Build your personal brand online [Have a Strategy behind your actions]
The subject of today’s Social Media Club was How to use Social Media to get a new Job. It’s a very interesting subject as I am in need of new job my self. Moderator is Johannes Sundlo.
Some key points:
- Set up a Strategy for what you want and can do.
- Everything you do in Social Media. Especially in the public ones. Adds up to your personal brand online. The Story about you.
- Staying on a job should be an active choice every day.
- Be yourself. We are all humans.
- Check out what your target job places are doing. Try to find common ground with them.
- Contact your target personally by phone or direct contact.

Tweeeet, Meeeet and Haaaangout
After a very relaxing Energy Consultation and Massage at Energikällan, it was time for a TweetUp. A Tweetup is an event where people who speak on Twitter come together to meet in person. Usually it’s a very social event with people who really want to get together and chat about life in general or a specific subject that they have previously talked about online. Never pass up the chance to be social. This is how we build our new Network Society.
I have also been doing some Google Hangouts lately. This is great way to discuss an interesting subject online with people who you can’t meet in person with at the moment. It can be done at home with your favorite device or on the move somewhere with a decent internet connection. Video can be turned of if the bandwidth is too low. I do a regular Hangout with Johan Lange where we check in about how our life plans are going towards a “Leaner” tomorrow 🙂
Try to find others online that you want to talk to and invite them to join a Hangout.
Weld me together [All my parts must interconnect]
The evening finale took place in Never Never Land. The latest of Marvel’s movies is Iron Man 3. As you can tell from my blog I am a big Marvel Fan. The Avengers was my favorite Movie from 2012 and I’m a big fan of Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man. So I really had my hopes up for this movie. Tony Stark represents the Super Maker and Tinkerer we all look up to, part of him based on Elon Musk. It is far from a perfect Movie, but it does provide some thoughts about pursuing a True Purpose in life.
Find an Honorable path and stay True to it’s Purpose
