Ask Not...?

Ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.

Yep, Kennedy. I heard this inspiring quote a couple of days ago while watching an interesting documentary about Ronald Reagan. It struck me how much this quote relates to social media. Social media is not about waiting for others to come to you, but you going to them by serving them. Social media is not about taking, but giving. Social media is not about shouting, but listening first. It's about asking, not stating. Etc.

Although humans are deeply social, I do think we have to reminded regularly that this is true. And live up to that fact. At least this quote helped me remember.
