I don’t think of social media as a place where people go to find true love. To me, social media is a place to meet friends and network, and I just don’t see it as a place full of warm and fuzzy romance. Obviously I’m wrong though because more and more people are meeting their lifelong partners on Facebook, Twitter and the other social media sites that we visit every day. I can think of four long-term relationships (and even one marriage) amongst the circle of friends that I know which all started in social media. So if you are a single guy trying to fit love, social media and a nice dinner into each day, what exactly is the recipe for social media success when it comes to finding a little romance?
I don’t really know the answer to that question, but if you are looking for a social media case study to endeavor into, this would be a good one. Author Dustin DeTorres from the blog of the same name knows the answer though. He recently published an article called The Bachelor’s Recipe For Social Media, and it was such a good one that I just had to share it with you here.
According to Dustin, his recipe for social media success is full of international flavor. It’s wonderful to serve at birthdays or even when you’re sitting alone in a coffee shop. It’s especially good at non-social gatherings. If you are a bachelor looking for social media success, you might want to give this recipe a try. Don’t forget to measure your ingredients carefully and to wear an apron.
