Are you funny looking or funny ha ha?
His session about How to Use Social Media to Enchant People was not only full of interesting facts, but his delivery style was easy to understand and enjoyable. Why? Because Guy has a sense of humour.
So much so that I tweeted: The only point that @GuyKawasaki missed in his list was: Have a Sense of Humour. Which he has in spades. #smss11.
Guy responded: @LaurindaShaver But humor cannot be taught so why mention it? 🙂
If humour can’t be taught, is it essential in Social Media?
Humour is not just about making you laugh. It is also about not taking yourself too seriously. We all have those moments where we write a tweet and press SEND and walk away. Only to come back later and realize that you wrote “asses” instead of “assess”. Or is that just me?
What do you do? I laughed. I laughed so hard it hurt. Why? because I made of ass of myself (pardon the pun) and I can just picture the looks on people’s faces when they read it.
So I believe that not only do you provide info, insight, and assistance as per Guy’s presentation, but you also need to do so with a sense of humour.
What do you think?
