Elementary question, correct in the context of daycare or grade school, but also positive reinforcement to us as busy LinkedIn users, because we need to think this way. Right?

Consider yourself reminded.

Share. Re-share.

LinkedIn blogs out its knowledge to different groups, and one group I was invited to recently ran a blogpost (above)  that suggested we reshare others’ posts more often.

OK, I am guilty too of not sharing often enough. Mea culpa.

It’s easy to do, just remembering is the hard part.

So anytime you go to click “like” or give that lame thumbs-up or smiley-face emoji, stop yourself and ask, “can I add anything to this to give my unique perspective?”

Add your 2 cents. We want to know what you are thinking, on top of what another smart person is thinking, and the combined knowledge will make you stand out more and get counted on LinkedIn. The algorithm that runs LinkedIn may just smile on you too.

Let’s make a concerted effort to share and reshare each other’s great materials to our connections and nurture them, and us, at the same time.

The “social” in business-oriented social media, right?
