Our newest team member, Jason, weighs in on Kumbuya..
There are various social media outlets that we all use. Twitter for news, Facebook for friends and family, and LinkedIn for building a professional network. They were all innocently built to help people stay connected as a community. But when taking a step back to reflect why we all use these platforms there seems to be a darker theme tying them together. We use Facebook to stalk, tweet in hopes of being noticed by favorite Bobby Flay, and use LinkedIn strictly to check who is creeping on your profile. It’s okay. Rather than deny the fact Facebook is your main portal to gain knowledge on your ex, you might as well embrace it, right?
The beauty of Kumbuya is it allows you to take all of those minor social vices you crave and compile them on one multi-functional page, called “Tribes”. As the Fearless Leader of your tribe the options are endless to create your own community united around specific themes and interests.
Here are three easy ways to tame the attention beast and rise to the top of the totem pole:
Content Content Content
You can’t be retweeted if you don’t tweet enough. The same as your friends can’t reassure the fact you are a good photographer if you don’t post pictures on Instagram. Content is king, especially in the world of Kumbuya. The more you post in your tribe and stay relevant, the odds of activity within your tribe and more importantly growing your tribe to more members is key.
Sharing is Caring
Keeping your other networks up to date with what you are doing with Kumbuya will keep your tribe nice and healthy, continuously exposing your awesome Tribe to outside communities. Every time you or someone in your tribe posts content, make sure and give it some love.
It’s Legal to join other Tribes
The great thing about Kumbuya is that it doesn’t shut you down from participating in other tribes/communities. In fact, engagement is encouraged, with as many tribes as you can handle. More interaction you have with tribes across the board will lead to more members in your own tribe.
