5 Questions

What’s your favourite social media site?
“I have always been a Facebook guy, buy my love for the site has diminished over recent years. The loss of reach, and restrictive edge rank can punish business owners who just want to reach their customers. This being said, edge rank also rewards really engaging posts and allow you to reach more than your original audience. Twitter has no such edge rank-ey restrictions and encourages actual two-way communication rather than just ‘putting messages out your fans’ – it allows feedback from customers and light-speed communication.

I would say, Twitter and Facebook have my vote, jointly”

What’s your favourite food?
“Greek. Why, do you have some? Seriously though, fresh fish, simple, home-cooked food, ideally under the setting sun and near water = perfect for me.”

Facebook or Twitter?
“It’s a tie. For the above reasons.”

Who is your sporting hero and why?
“You know what, I would struggle to pick a favourite. I love my cricket and there has been some pretty impressive characters there – Sachin Tendulkar, Shane Warne and Ian Botham have all achieved so much in the sport. I would particularly prioritise any sportsman who is “entertaining” to the point where it attracts youngsters to take up the sport – Playing sport is a big part of my world, it relieves stress, keeps you fit and forms lasting friendships – So anyone who can help more of that happen… has got my vote”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given at work?
“I have two. “Work harder than your competition” and “Money is infinite, time is not. Prioritise your time and the money will naturally flow.”

Facebook or Twitter?

Twitter is great for instantly knowing what’s going on in the world. It’s fast moving and great for conversing with complete strangers. Facebook is all about following for so it depends who are connect with, for example friends, brand etc. I do like the more visual aspect of Facebook.”

From a business perspective I think they both have their role to play and have equal importance to a have successful social media strategy. I enjoy the ease of information on Twitter.”

5 Questions

What’s your favourite social media site?

“Twitter would have to be my pick. It’s a great source of information and knowledge – if you follow the right accounts! It’s also great for starting conversations with people you wouldn’t normally be able to reach.”

What’s your favourite food?
“Spicy Fajitas with loads of cheese.”

Facebook or Twitter?
“Twitter!”

Who is your sporting hero and why?
“A better question would probably be ‘can you name a sporting hero?’ I guess the closest I can get is that as a kid I loved WWF Wrestling (or WWE… or WW… or whatever it’s called nowadays), so bearing that in mind I’d say The Rock. That’s really grasping at straws though.”

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given at work?
“’Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sort of good at something.’ It sounds silly but it’s so important not to be put off by that first stage of learning new things.”
