LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, Triberr, Goodreads, Klout, WordPress, Google+, YouTube…
The world of social media is constantly growing and evolving. That’s what makes it so exciting. That’s also what makes is so overwhelming.
As a writer, it’s important to be on social media in some capacity. To be active, to build a readership, to learn more about the craft, to interact with other like-minded people, and yes, to have fun.
Time is a precious commodity. One we have to manage very, very carefully. So we search for that elusive ‘balance’. And in that quest, I have to wonder… which of these sites is really worth it. I mean, really. Maybe all? Maybe none?
For example, I’ve recently been told by one of my fellow Wana711 sistas’, Jillian Dodd, that Goodreads is the place to be. Sure, I belonged to Goodreads, but to be fair, I had barely utilized it. I didn’t really know what it can do (still not totally sure) but I’m learning that it might be one of my most useful tools as an author. Also, another Wana711 sista’ Natalie Hartford, just introduced me to Triberr. More to learn? Absolutely, but…it could really be worth the effort.
So…Wordbitches Wonder…what’s the most useful social media site for you? No, not the most fun. But the most useful. And why?
