“The short answer is, yes. But here's the thing: don't try to be the master of the entire social universe. Define exactly what you want to get out of it, make a plan to get there, and follow that plan. Do that, and by the end you'll find that social success is truly within your reach.”

How to Gain a Social Following:

1. Define Your Goals

"The three most common goals are brand awareness, customer engagement, and sales conversions--choose the one(s) that make sense for your startup." 

2. Choose Your Channels

"You don't need to hit every single one; instead, you need to focus on the right ones." 

3. Develop Your Content

"Ensure your content is appropriate for the channel you're posting to, and keep it more or less consistent across channels."
