Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read 140 characters messages known as tweets.

Chat is any kind of informal communication over the Internet using tools such as instant messengers.

“A brand is a name or trademark connected with a product or producer. Brands have become increasingly important components of culture and the economy, now being described as “cultural accessories and personal philosophies.” Wikipedia

Personal Branding

Now, Is it possible to use Twitter to Chat about Brands and Personal Branding?

Yes, that becomes possible with the idea that Maria Duron and David Sandusky came with. They created the @BrandChat on Twitter and inviting all branding followers for live chat on Twitter every Wednesday.


Also, there is a Facebook fan page to interact with members for questions suggestions, recaps of the brand chat and brand resources.

Here is part of the brand chat for October 7, 2009.

Is a personal brand earned or created? And, extending that is a biz brand … earned or created? Let’s discuss!

pmarckworth: @GetResults I agree. A personal brand is based on making and keeping a clear promise.

neilmckenzphoto: Q1: Personal brand – you create it by earning it. If you just create it then it is just a mask.

lisakribs: Q1: Personal Brand – neither created or earned, you are what you are. Any other representation is deception.

paulcopcutt: @mariaduron personal brand evolves, message & communication is created, reputation and value is earned.

Mikimel: A personal brand is both earned and created, just like any product’s package – one cannot exist without the other.

jemcgrew: Q1: I see personal branding as marketing yourself … one of my professors used to say the most important thing you market is U.

HuebnerPetersen: Q1: Branding is storytelling – in bot biz & personal realms. You create your story and the work to live up to it (earn it).

BrandMyCareer: @lizisaacslwc But my personal brand created by earning followers, fans and readers for my blog, right? #brandchat

lizisaacslwc: @DrFernKazlow there are several misconceptions about PB – we often don’t believe we’re powerful beyond measure.

strategystew: Q1 I think the real challenge is creating a brand of any kind is not being clear on who you are and what you are promising.

I inspired this post after reading Chris Brogan’s post about Three Changes I Wish Facebook Would Make I have come across more things that I wish Facebook would add or do it differently. I couldn’t find a way to contact  Facebook directly for suggestions so If you know, please pass it to them or let me know how in the comment box.

Four Changes I Wish Facebook Would Make

1 If I like a status or link to informative resources, I have either to retweet it immediately or bookmark the link for future reading. A small favorite icon will  let us have a great hub of resources on the Facebook network.


2 – Add two security questions  to answer prior to change Facebook password or Email. In case your Email, Facebook account  or Fan page compromised, no one will able to change your password and your account can be restored back at any time.

3 – Sometimes I have question but as soon as I update my status, the question went down and I have to write it again. I would recommend to add re-publish or a stick bottom for status update to keep the status at the top no matter how many times I change my status.


4 – One time I had around 20 notifications for a photo I commented on,  it was a chat between two of  my friends and that continued for 3 days! It is OK to get notifications but it annoying sometimes. I would suggest adding “Stop Tracking Notifications” for each notification I get involved in.

What do you think? Do you need those things on your Facebook profile?

Have a Great Day!
