Many people adopt the “oh, what’s the use” attitude about social media.
Author Tim Lewis has just published a new book, Social Media Networking: How to Use Social Media to Get the Job You Want, Find Love, Get Business and Boost Your Travel Experience, to give you the motivation you need to connect with the people who can take your entire life to the next level.
I met Tim Lewis at Social Media Marketing World in San Diego in 2017 and was honored to be interviewed on his Begin Self Publishing Podcast .
As the author of two books about social media myself, What Is Social Media Today: Hashtags, Keywords and You, Oh My! and What Is Social Media Today: Get Ready to Win the Game of Social Media, Tim and I have a lot in common and a lot to talk about.
In this book, Tim Lewis interviews over twenty people about their experiences of using social media to get ahead in their lives. The real power of social media today is not secret strategies for selling products or becoming a fake influencer on Instagram but the ability to make connections that lead to getting ahead.
Discover the story of Julie Riley finding love after looking for someone to ride bikes with on MySpace.

He has published six fiction books under his full name Timothy Michael Lewis. You can see his Amazon Author Central Page at this link.
Tim Lewis spent 18 years working as a computer programmer and IT manager in the world of financial IT.
In 2011, the death of his wife after a long illness made him reassess his life goals.
He decided that he wanted to write stories, especially in the science fiction and fantasy genres.
Coming from an interest in screen-writing, his writing style is a fast-moving concise style of short action-packed books.
Take it from me – learning how to participate in social media can bring you actual friends, great business opportunities and much happiness.
