As of about 4 years ago, I don’t think I really knew what “Social Media” was. Then my class reunion came along and I was encouraged to sign up for Facebook, and that became the beginning of my social media frenzy.
Opening my personal Facebook page led me to create my travel business page, Saratoga Travel and most recently SKEdazzles, my business page led me to sign up for my Twitter accounts, which then led me to join LinkedIn and then I discovered the wonderful world of Pinterest which convinced me I needed to showcase my photos on Smugmug and of course I started my blog, SKEdazzles, on WordPress…whew…you get the idea. I’ve since opened a Google +1 account, which quite honestly, I don’t even know what it is!?!
So my question is: How many social media sites does one person need?….How many are too many? Each site does seem to serve its own purpose and the great thing is that a lot of these sites are interactive so one entry gets posted on numerous sites without having to do anything further. My fear is that I may not know the full capability of all these sites and I may be duplicating my efforts but, until I know otherwise, I will have to continue as is.
So I’m curious, how many different social media sites are you on? What site could you not live without? …And…do you have any other great sites to share with me that I may not know about and cannot live without? 😉
Excuse me now as I have some apps to download on my iPhone. 🙂
