Dollars? Miles? Kilometers? Ants?
No. Users on Facebook. So, as an author, am I missing out on exposure?
It’s a lot of work updating and posting on different social media channels without constantly hawking my wares, which in the end is the main point, but people don’t like to bombarded with “buy my stuff” content. I try to make being entertaining my main priority and if people enjoy my offerings, maybe they will support my endeavors.
Each has their niche. I post my cartoons and poems on Instagram, links to my blog posts on Twitter, store my videos on YouTube to link to my website, and Facebook? I started to use it to gain access to the many different writer/reader groups . . . until now.
After several months trying to navigate making an author page on Facebook, I think I’ve got it. I’ll tell you one thing though: Amazon and Facebook are running neck and neck when it comes to frustrating experiences.
Should you follow me on Facebook? If you use it more than coming to visit my blog, then yes. If you are expecting anything different, well, I’d still like to see you there. As I navigate the ins and outs, I may decide to add new and exiting content. You can always pass on the link to anyone else who might like it, I won’t mind.
What social media do you use the most?
