For anyone who is seeking to establish themselves as a subject matter expert or seeing to advance a career through publicity. social media – blah blah right? well. duh
we all know about it, but what are we actually supposed to do with it?
well, for one. starting a fan club on facebook. even it’s just your friends and immediate peers – posting interesting topics, getting discussions going – will draw more traffic.
then, you just have to be creative.
like this screen shot from my fan club, which is mostly other writers that I have known from various peer review groups, such as http://www.zoetrope.com and http://www.thewritersbuilding.org – as well as more recently on facebook,.
Screenwriters and novelists are the participants in the Writer Chat features that span my blogs.
Suzanne Lyon’s Tips on Social Media
I grew up in the 1970s watching American Hollywood cowboy and indian movies from the 1950’s; in the lower mainland of British Columbia. Canada.
In the 1970’s in Canada, the indigenous people finally won the right to vote in Federal and Provincial elections. So you can imagine perhaps the culturally charged atmosphere in which I lived while watching these historically biased and inaccurate films, while around me, these very inaccuracies were starting to be address and social changes were going on.
And for now, I am going to leave you all with just that thought. because I need to take some time to reflect and decide what if anything else that I would like to say on that subject or if I would like to take it another level of thought and expand on that. I will let you all know.
Enjoy your evening
Note: Yeah, I decided to not think about this for a while. so no more on this topic.
