We cover a wide range of techniques of engagement but focus singularly on a very important goal in LinkedIn communication: establishing trust. You can’t fake it and you shouldn’t try to.

381 | Shay Rowbottom on Social Narcissism

We’re joined on the EDGE by Shay Rowbottom, a social media influencer on LinkedIn for the second segment of our interview. We talked about the need for authentic content and the concepts of social media narcissism. There’s a perpetuation of false selves in social media and we need to develop the ability to source personal validation away from social media. The super-spreading of social hate is at an all-time high and it is difficult to challenge the tide. Shay shares her positive thoughts on how we can stop the social shame and live life in a positive place given the toxic social media environment we see now.
