Tips to Win Friends on The Net and The Blogosphere

This Dale Carnegie advice is so timeless. Let us examine how this 20th century brown-nose approach can be applied to our internet lives today. I have tried some of his principles at work, and I have this to say... these next 9 tips are so effective that you must not use it on vulnerable people, they will stick to you like flies... and for internet chatters, these people will keep buzzing you for a chat. You have been warned.

Tips to Win Friends on The Net and The Blogosphere

(1) Don't criticize, condemn or complain.

Swallow everything people say. If fools can do it, why can't we?

(2) Give honest and sincere appreciation.
Even if you cannot understand what you are really appreciating. Just keep on posting comments on every single post your fav blogger writes even if it is so out of touch with reality.

(3) Arouse in the other person an eager want.
Show him your thigh intense curiosity for the subject that he is writing about.

(4) Become genuinely interested in other people.
Even camwhores can be loved. If you try really, really hard.

(5) Smile.
The low-cost way to feign show interest on webcam.

(6) Remember that a man's (and girl of course) name is to him (or her) the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
Your name is the primordial sound of love unless your parents name you horatio or any name that sounds like a Latin belojeb.

(7) Be a good listener. Encourage others to talk about themselves.
It is always easy to be a good listener on the Net. Just look into the monitor while the other person chats away... isn't Jemma Jameson the most beautiful thing... (keep looking into the monitor, you are "listening" remember?)

(8) Talk in the terms of the other man's interest.
Talk about his blog, how you fell in love with his template, how his font size is so perfect for him...

(9) Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely.
Repeat point (8) and then add the word sincerely to the end of your sentence- this works all the time.

You can now call yourself THE ULTIMATE INTERNET FRIEND.
