Social Media TipsSave time on your social media by setting up a blog that automatically republishes to Facebook and Twitter through Networked Blogs, so you can devote the time spent announcing articles to establishing real connections with more readers. While having a presence on social networking sites is important, you will want a site that is accessible to everyone without the necessity of logging in. Republish the feed from your blog on your website if you have one as well.
Set up a Twitter profile to link and converse with your readers, and use it as the link to your name in your bio. Direct links from Twitter to your Facebook and LinkedIn profile, as well as your writing.
It is important to have even a limited Facebook presence. You can set your settings extremely tight so that only you are able to publish, or allow unlimited access the choice is yours.Be sure to set up a Facebook page for your writing or business in addition to a personal profile. Create settings that work for you, and subscribe to your page's notifications, so you are aware of people posting items on your wall. Link pictures to your Facebook business page. Facebook is second only to Google in SEO. Use descriptive names when labelling your pictures.
