Social Content Is About You: Your Tips on Entrepreneurship, Social Media and Innovation

Night mode

Today I want to try out an experiment together with you, the reader of our blog. We know crowd knowledge gathering on social platforms on the internet such as Wikipedia. But how about social content publishing outside of an academical realm?

Let’s try out how that would look like here on TechAcute in collaboration with all you TechAcuties out there. This is your chance to contribute to an article without the need of hosting your own blog or writing a whole guest article on your own.

I will draft out 3 different crowd-sourced subjects in this post and you can just add your contribution by adding a comment below the post. Please be so kind and also drop your name and Twitter handle along with your addition, so you can be credited properly.

In the innovative world, anything is possible. Escape your own reality and don’t worry about making mistakes. Get out of your comfort zone.

These subjects will each receive their own post when we have reached a fair amount of contributions. The collaboration can be still carried out in the separated articles at a later stage though. I bet this will have a very interesting result. I strongly believe that many people with many experiences and different views can collaborate and create amazing things!

Just to make sure everything stays nice and tidy we also get some help from independent judges who will make sure nothing bad or misleading will end up in this collection of tips. Thanks to Marsha CollierDiana Adams and Silvia Spiva for helping out with this. 🙂
