Ok, I know how I want to use Facebook now.
And I know how I want to use my blog.
And I know how I use twitter.
But, I can’t quite figure out Google+.
I used to spend tons of time on social media sites. I was trying to force things to happen sooner rather than later, which worked for me. The more time I put into it, the faster it would grow. I guess that happens when you focus on specifics. While some see that they lose followers when they post too much, when I post more content, I gain more followers and add traffic to my different sites. I figured that out a while ago. I just can’t spend the same amount of time doing that.
I’ve been dabbling with social media for about two years now and I am just now realizing what my objective really is with social media. I use my different social media sites to start conversations, bring awareness to topics that my audience is interested in and most of all have fun while doing it. I have figured out that when I stop having fun, I just can’t keep doing it. Some would say to force through it, but if I’m not having fun, I don’t have time for it.
So, now I have a few questions for you…
How do you use each social media site? How much time do you spend on social media stuff each day? What do you really want out of social media?
