Give something of value.
That's it. No Big Idea here, is there?
Are we really so far gone in our social interactions that we need dozens of Social Media Emily Post gurus to tell us something as simple as how to begin basic relationships?
As you listen and play you'll begin to learn all the subtle rules of the game and how to get in on creating new ways to play. The others will trust you once they see you really like what they have to share with you, and that you're willing to share your toys too.
That's it, all Six Rules you need to build a good start. Once these lessons are done, then go read books by the gurus. You'll find that you're a lot smarter about figuring out who the good ones are.
Tell me, did I forget anything? Because it's my turn to listen.
