Do you know the difference? I think this is great! Brought to you from laurenswrittenword
It’s come to my attention that there’s a lot of buzz about the correct and incorrect ways to use social media when promoting yourself as an author or blogger. There’s a fine line between effective social media use and, well, just plain stalking. For those of you who worry you may be falling into the latter category, here’s my all-important, 100 percent certified* checklist for you to make sure you’re on the path of the straight and narrow:
Strong social media use: Following people on twitter such as authors or industry professionals.
Stalker: Following those people home.
Strong social media use: Sending a note to an author or industry professional once you’ve added them, just to say hi.
Stalker: Writing the hello letter in blood. The blood of their dead cat.
Strong social media use: Sharing the statuses and updates of these people IF you find them relevant and informative.
