Stimulating discussion, geeking out and Tik Tok

I’m putting up a pic that has nothing to do with the article in the hope that a “cute doggy” image will generate more likes 😉

It’s been a bit of a sticky kind of week. I won’t go into details, but needless-to-say, it wasn’t one I want to repeat. You know how you have those weeks? The ones that start out okay and then descend into chaos by the end of it? That was my week last week.

However, so far, this week is turning out okay. It’s only Monday, but I am hopeful it will be a good one! 🙂

Last week I had a meeting with the MD/SEO of a company that does search engine optimisation for websites, mainly. They do social media too, but search engine optimisation seems to be their main business. And a very interesting chat it was too. I was there to see if I could bend the ear of Alan, the aforementioned MD/SEO, and chat about social media and search engine optimisation. And learn I did. But that was not all we talked about. We spent some of the time geeking out on our shared interests in fantasy and science fiction. I do love that when you meet someone that likes the same things as you. Anyway, thank you Alan for taking the time out of your busy day to chat to me and for giving me tips and advice on social media and SEO. A most interesting and stimulating discussion.

So back to social media, and I’ve been looking into Tik Tok, which is all about the creation and uploading of short video to “inspire creativity and bring joy”. Certainly there’s a lot of daft videos uploaded there and some of them are funny. What’s interesting is that amount of likes something as (let’s face it) not that interesting as creating a glass Christmas decoration got 2.2 million likes. There’s a girl and her two dogs spelling out Love who got 2.3 million likes. I wonder, is there something daft I could do to generate that many likes? Hmmm.
