Your Turn: Your Favorite Social Media Site (Jill)

Recently, I asked my author group a question: which do you like better, Instagram or Twitter? Instagram was the winner, although someone went rogue and voted for Facebook. I started thinking about all the different social media sites I was encouraged to be on, to build my platform. And unfortunately, that never stops. I’m assuming my gravestone’s epitaph will be “Follow me at!”

I’ve made an account on Facebook, Instagram, Goodreads, Twitter, Google+, as well as my own personal author website. That’s a lot to keep track of, but since my favorite is Facebook, that’s where I usually am.

My question for you? What is your favorite social media site? Do you manage to stay active on several at a time? Maybe you have a social media tip or technique that’s worked really well for you? 

Please share below in the comments!

  1. I use Facebook mostly, though I check Twitter as well. I love pinterest, but mostly for personal use. However, I refuse to join Instagram or any more social media networks!

  2. Good for you for limiting your networks, Elizabeth! I love Pinterest, too -- great to use for writing inspiration.

  3. Facebook is my favorite, too! I like the idea of Instagram, but I never remember to take pictures and I wish it were easier to use on a computer since I'm old-school :) I don't spend much time on Twitter, but it seems like a good place to make announcements that could reach an audience beyond just people you know. So a little of each, I guess!

  4. It's hard to change our habits, but little by little I'm easing into Instagram. I feel torn, though -- I want to live my life, not watch it through a lens, while looking for that perfect image to post. Guess I'm old school, too!

  5. Instagram is my favorite. :) It helps me to have a purpose for each site and cross-post among them any content that fits. Using schedulers, like Buffer, also helps. I try to check in at least once a week, some accounts more often.
