Your Social Media Basket

Recently, Edie Melson at The Write Conversation wrote about the changes on Facebook that took effect on January 1, 2015. In this post she gives new strategies to reach your readers.

One of her suggestions involves a return to blogging, guest posts, and commenting on other blogs. Social Media cannot replace the interaction we've experienced through this medium, as well as provide the stability we need.

Check out the rest of her ideas and see which ones you can implement. The big word here is: diversify.

Writers: How are you dealing with the changes on Facebook?

Readers: Where do you go to find out information on new releases and your favorite authors? Do you belong to Goodreads? Twitter? Google+?

Hi Susan - I don't know what I'd do if I was an author ... but I certainly prefer the interaction ... though I suppose blogging with FB and Tweeting to a point ...

Time is critical .. and we need to do the best for us .. while ensuring we don't lose sight of others ..

Cheers and Happy New Year - Hilary

Susan: I'm not sure what these changes mean to me, how they affect me.Does it mean that I can no longer have my blog integrated into my Facebookpage? Does it mean that it will cost me to review a book and give a link to Amazon if the readers want to know more about the book?
