Me and social media; what about you?

EscapeThere are ‘those’ who are sending continuously their ‘where-about’ and ‘personal experience’ messages into cyberspace via a multitude of social media like Tumblr, Facebook and Twitter. I’m not a favourite of opening my ‘well-being’ or ‘not-so-well-being’ plus my ‘where-abouts’ to the whole world. I’m a bit of a cyberspace hermit in that regard but I do see the value of sharing my pictures with the world and if you can ‘read’ pictures and between text lines you might get a bit of a glimpse of me. And that is fine.

_DSC2596_598_599_600_601_tonemappedI must also admit that I am very lazy and lazy-ness in my case results in efficient use of social media. Every time I post in this blog it’s automatically shared on my Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr and (only if I want to) Facebook accounts. I rarely check my Tumblr and LinkedIn accounts but it’s a nice ‘niche’ to have as well. Once or twice per week I add one of more pictures to my Flickr account and almost daily I schedule my Tweets 10 to 100 days ahead with SocialOomph (meaning that I schedule a link to a blogpost with one click of the mouse) resulting in 50 to 100 repeating tweets daily. I do this since the discovery of SocialOomph a few months ago and it resulted so far in 4- t0 5-hundred new followers without having to follow others myself…. 😉 Another nice tool is Begware (just google); the free account allows you to automate retweets of up to 20 followers. And if these start to retweet your tweets the ‘snowball’ slowly gets bigger and bigger.

_DSC2126_45_50_fusedThe social medium most ‘intensively’ used by me is Facebook (although on FB I’m having a break until the beginning of January). And where I spend most time on FB is the ‘personal messages’ page where I and some FB-friends I personally know chat a bit every now and than). Bloggers/mutual followers on wordpress I also follow (also mutual) on FB are Leanne Cole, Andrew Harvard, Wendy McDonald, and Rabirius. A few of them also tweet.

blendedlandscape8HOWEVER I do have the feeling that more of my followers are on more social media than WordPress alone. Follow/like me on Twitter and FB and I will follow/like you. ‘Retweets’ do work on Twitter is my recent experience as do ‘likes’ on FB.
