Social Media posts that get engagement

Posting on social media is easy. Creating social media posts that consistently get engagement can be more difficult.

“I'm just here in a sandbox. That's my point. It’s not my sandbox. I don't own the sandbox. Zuckerberg owns the sandbox or Dorsey owns the sandbox or Paul and Rohan and their investors own the sandbox. It's not me. I don't own any of those three sandboxes and yet, I can use all three of those sandboxes, and many others.  I can play in them as much as I want, every single day, 24/7, to my heart's content.. ”
