Last week I wrote about why you need to share. Here are two simple tools you can use to cultivate the minset of sharing.
Twitter – Influence your tribe 140 characters at a time
- Share things you are learning or reading
- Link to people that will add value to your followers
- Link to articles that you are reading
(Note: Making 85 updates a day, telling people you are riding the bus, eating chocolate cake etc… is not hugely valuable in my opinion. Check out why Twitter work for me for a global leaders non-profit leader’s perspective on using this tool.)
RSS Reader like Google Reader – Leaders are readers. Share what you are reading. (What is RSS?)
- I examine nearly all the posts friends share via Google Reader
- Sharing posts you like helps identify blogs your circle of influence can also benefit from
What tools do you use to help you share?

Yup. I agree. Personally I love to share things through facebook as well, since that is currently where I have the most contact with the most broad spectrum of people. I am thankful for finally figuring out a great service like HootSuite because I can share things to my twitter, facebook and blog all at the same time. Now only if HootSuite had an RSS readers as well….
Good to know – I was wondering how the sharing works on Google Reader. I too now have formed the habit of reading all shared materials – but find it overwhelming if I had more connections on Google Reader. I keep my connections on that low for now.
