15 GREAT social media quotes

Left quotation markAs many of you know, I’m extremely passionate about social media and helping show others how powerful a tool that it can be to build and help grow any project. One key thing to remember is that just because someone else is already wildly successful in your field, you shouldn’t let it stop you. Instead, you should use it to motivate you, not to be good, but to be GREAT at what you do.

Below is a list of my 15 favorite quotes about social media. Remember, quotes can educate, provoke thought, and inspire others to do GREAT things. Feel free to share them, quote them, or add your own (in the comments section below). Enjoy!
