I already have Facebook & Pinterest:

That's great!  How often do you engage, socially, on Pinterest?  Do you simply 're-pin,' or do you leave comments and interact to encourage discussion regarding inspiring content (pins)?

What about Facebook?  Besides getting ideas for your blog and increasing your traffic, how much dialogue to you actually exchange to enhance your professional practice?  Sure, you get great ideas... but do you challenge your colleagues in a positive manner, ask meaningful questions, connect with professionals you look up to, or begin to reflect on your own philosophy and methodology?  

I already have a Twitter account:

Yes... but how are you using it?  Do you simply post Tweets about your latest product or post?  Then, do you wonder why you're not gaining followers or getting re-tweeted?

What can I add to Twitter that other people aren't already doing?

Share what other great people are doing... if it's worth 'pinning,' it's worth tweeting!
Also, if you have an iPad, I highly recommend getting Zite... ohhhh... it is so cool (but that's another post).  Click here to see Zite (free) in iTunes and click here to see the Zite site.

Most importantly... connect, communicate, and chat! -- 'social' network!
