I happen to mean it in the Adam-Sandler-thinks-he-got-a-free-Ferrari way (see Bedtime Stories for more information). Your social media skills, on the other hand, may just be plain ol’ sick–diseased, unwell, ailing. Here, let’s do a quick test to determine which type of sickness you have: Do you understand the basic difference between being on social media and doing something on social media? If so; siiiiiick! If not; just sick. If you fall into the latter category, consider this post your social media-cine.

If you are looking for a way to shine on social media, to go above and beyond, to completely outdo your competition and to have a chance at making a real dent in the online universe (and maybe even the rest of the universe as well), this post is for you. If nothing else, you’ll come away with a better understanding of how social media does and does not work.

- Creativity is ESSENTIAL. If
