Building rapport is one of the most common ways for people to improve their online presence.
But there’s no magic formula.
Here’s how to know if your online presence is thriving and what to do to make it a little more engaging.
First, make sure you’re in a good mood.
It’s important to be able to share some of your feelings about your online activity, so that others feel connected to you.
If you can’t express yourself through an image or video, try sharing a short description of your experience with a friend or colleague.
It can help your online interactions to feel more personal and genuine.
You might be surprised to find that sharing a little about yourself online can help improve your online brand.
The more you share about yourself, the more connected you become to your peers and friends.
The online community can help cultivate your personality.
You’ll be able take a little time to reflect on your life and the world around you, and feel more confident about your choices and actions.
You can even start to build a connection with your family and friends if you share something personal or interesting.
You also can benefit from other people’s feedback.
If they offer advice, suggestions, or praise for your online behavior, that could be an important part of building a better online presence—especially if they’re sharing it from a place of genuine admiration and trust.
Finally, try asking questions.
It helps to have a conversational, nonjudgmental voice, and it can also be a great way to engage in conversations with your audience.
You could even ask a question in the middle of a video if you’re curious to see how they respond.
For instance, you could ask about your favorite game, the most memorable moment of your week, or something personal.
The same goes for your favorite restaurants, movies, music, or sports.
When people say things like, “Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I just visited that great restaurant in Seattle,” that’s an opportunity for you to reflect about your own experience with your favorite food and restaurant.
You don’t have to tell them to share a photo or video of yourself with the person they’re talking to.
They’ll probably have their own experience too, and you can also ask about what they’re doing or eating, and how it affects them.
It also might help to make sure that your questions are related to your goal.
It might be a good idea to ask about how you can make your online experience more interesting, or a challenge, or just a reminder that you’re a gamer.
Some examples of questions you can ask in the video below are: How do I find and watch videos?
How do you stay connected to people?
Do I have a lot of friends on Twitch?
What is your favorite part about my life?
What are some of the best things about the city you live in?
I’m in Seattle, and I love watching video games and video-game related shows.
Are there any video games I’d like to play?
Do you have any favorite food?
Do your friends eat at those places?
How can I get a good deal on games?
I love eating out, and sometimes it gets really crowded at restaurants.
How do my friends and family respond to my interest in video games?
What kinds of entertainment do you like to watch online?
What movies are you most likely to watch?
How much do you want to see in a movie?
How often do you watch movies?

When I’m talking about video games, I mean, I’m just talking about the kind of games I play, not the content.
So, there’s nothing particularly “gamer-ish” about my video-gaming habits.
Is it that I don’t want to be a jerk?
Or that I prefer video games to other kinds of media?
That’s just what I am.
What’s my favorite game?
I can’t really say.
It depends on what kind of game I like, how I enjoy playing, what games I’ve played before, what kinds of friends I have, and even what kinds in my social circles I’m comfortable with.
I enjoy the feeling of interacting with people and playing games with them.
