There are no guarantees, but being famous on social media doesn't have to be impossible. With the right "hook" and strategy, you, too, could become internet famous. Here's an infographic from the WhoIsHostingThis Blog, filled with tips and ideas on what makes people internet famous.
Some key takeaways:
Preparing for your internet fame:
Choose your niche: Something you're knowledgeable/passionate about.
Adapt your personality to appeal to your ideal audience.
Choose at least two or three of these platforms depending on your niche (Blog, Facebook, Google+, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).
Develop your social media strategy:
After deciding which platforms you'll use, decide how much time you want to dedicate to each. You can do it all in an hour a day or less, though it's good idea to break it up intp two 30-minute sessions, or four 15-minute sessions.
No matter which social media networks you join, be consistent across all of them.
