Winnie the Pooh and his friends had wonderful opinions about the world around them but who knew they shared such insight into social media and modern communications technology. Here are a few of their thoughts penned by A. A. Milne:

On Content Creation
“You can’t stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

On Twitter
“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like “What about lunch?”

Building a Following
“If the person you are talking to doesn’t appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.”

On Personal Facebook Posts
“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.”

On Apple’s iOS6 Maps
“I’m not lost for I know where I am. But however, where I am may be lost.”
