Dr. Seuss’ rhyming wisdom provides social media lessons for all of us. Here are a few:

1. “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.” Be yourself on social media platforms and reveal your true essence. Don’t try to be someone else. To this end, don’t pass someone else’s content off as yours.

Social media tip: Show who you are with your avatar and profiles. Include information that proves you’re human.

2. “So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.” Great advice for social media where space is limited and participants are constantly bombarded with information. Keep your messages short and on target

Social media tip: Integrate your branding into your social media interactions through your language, voice and graphics. Dr. Seuss’ tweets would sound like Dr. Seuss without needing identification.
