Social Media- Paragons of Netiquette

Social Media: Paragons of Netiquette on www.CourtneyPrice.com http://wp.me/p2e5e8-4Ai

In the wolf hierarchy, there exists a ranking system. Dominance in a pack has more to do with confidence and strength of character than size or physical strength. Which means that contrary to popular belief, the Alpha dogs are not the snarling, ferocious ones, but the calm and wise ones.

Spoiler alert: if you watch the wolf pack behavior videos, you will note that the ones with the most self-serving or bully behaviors don’t meet a good end. They usually get taken down by the rest of the pack to restore balance to the group. Natural selection.

This same mentality transfers to the social media world. Social media platforms are stages for all kinds of behavior- the good, the bad and the ugly.

Instead, we will focus on the paragons of excellence, the true alphas of the social media world, and what they are doing so well. [Read more…]

Mothers Day brunches, graduation parties and summer holidays are all just around the corner. But we don’t really need a holiday excuse to entertain, do we… nice weather weekends are reason enough to celebrate friends and family.

So the details of this drink should be as well thought out as the rest of the meal- like a choice that makes sense with the menu, which fresh ingredients are in season, glasses, garnishes and whether they will be formally served or set up for self-serve. Let’s peruse some crowd pleasing recipes that will quench outdoor thirst and pair nicely with spring and summer menus.
