How to win in social media political groups
A couple of folks recently expressed interest in my experience in online conservative political forums. The comment I often hear from people is, “How do you know so much about politics?”
I always find this to be a funny question because I really don’t know much about politics, at least not the way they’re thinking about it. What I know a lot about is values and how to talk to people about values. I know how to make powerful moral arguments.
The reason I do this is because social media is powerful. If you don’t believe me, just look at how it was used to influence the last election.
It’s not hard to develop powerful social media skills, but it takes thinking about things a little differently. And it takes practice, too.
To help, I thought I’d break down a recent example.
