To read we must first learn the alphabet.  We learn to say the letters identify the letters, the letter sounds and how to write the letters. Next we learn how to put letters together to make words, blend sounds and eventually make sentences, paragraphs and use words to tell a story. A process of learning that takes time and practice. Like all things there are different methods of teaching a concept or skill and there are different ways to learn.

Social media is just like learning your ABC’s there are different ways to learn how to use social media for your business or blog but there is always the basic alphabet regardless of your story.
