Social networking has grown over the past few years to become important for many of us in our personal and professional lives.
I’m interested to find out which networks you use, so here’s my first attempt at a poll:
As for me, I’m currently using Facebook (separate accounts for personal and professional), Twitter (mainly professional) and I just joined Google+. Once upon a time, I had MySpace. I’ve never done LinkedIn or any others out there.
Social networking can be powerful tool, and I like using it to connect with my readers and sources and to promote my work. But there are only so many hours in a day, and I don’t want to get bogged down with constant monitoring and updates of my networks.
Which networks do you like and why? I’d love to hear the pros and cons in the comments below.
