Social Media Just for Writers: How to Build Your Online Platform and Find and Engage with Your Readers

Our rating: 4 of 5 stars

Social Media Just for Writers is a beginner's book for those who are wanting to know more about social media. It's just the basics. There was very little for one who has been using social media for so many years now.

Social Media Just for Writers: How to Build Your Online Platform and Find and  Engage with Your ReadersHowever, it didn't hurt to just have a look at some of the information. We tend to forget details, as they overwhelm us. So, it was good to have a look at them. There were some bits that we didn't know about.

Social Media Just for Writers is better geared for authors, rather than bloggers or other content creators. Here again, this doesn't mean that it's useless. It's not. For example, there was a mention of the slight importance of joining a writer's community (via Triberr).

We've joined Triberr. But, we still haven't figured out how to dig in there and really use it to our betterment. Joining and taking part in such communities involves a lot of details. You need to know the norms and nuances, so that you don't tick someone off and ruin any good thing that you could of had.

The bases are covered. One should not assume that one knows it all. One should have a look for themselves. Just sayin'.
